Whisky with the perfect measurements.

Tobermory distillery is situated on the Scottish island of Mull, in the village of Tobermory. The distillery, formerly known as Ledaig, is the only distillery on the island. It was founded in 1798 by John Sinclair, has changed hands several times and undergone a number of closure periods.
 
These days the brand name ‘Ledaig’ is used for all their lightly peated malt Whisky, whereas the unpeated Whisky is sold as Tobermory. While most of the distilleries in the Island region mature their Whiskies on the islands themselves, Ledaig matures them on the Mainland. 
 
This is a special opportunity my friend. Ledaig 18 YO Sherry Cask has a resume to die for. Ian MacMillanthe master distiller of Tobermory—grabbed a batch of their signature single malt after his first full year at the distillery. He set it aside and babied this treasure in the agieng rooms for 18 years, first in new oak, then finishing in Oloroso Sherry cask. It is a Hebridean-styled Whisky… lightly peated during the drying of the malt, aged in the best woods, lovingly cared for on the northern Scottish Islands near the sea, non-chill-filtered and served up at 46.3% ABV
 
To the lover of fine single malt Whisky, those specifications read like Marilyn Monroe’s measurements. Perfect, full-bodied, an object of desire. But like everything desired and rare, the opportunity will not last...
 
SmartAss Corner
The Hebrides are a group of numerous islands and islets off the west coast of Scotland. The Whiskies of these islands are usually lumped in with the Islay malts, but that is a shame. Although not an official independent Whisky-producing region, it has a style of its own that aficionados recognize as lightly peated and richly textured.
