This rare gem was put to rest back in 1974.

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 and has changed hands several times, having undergone a number of periods of closure.

These days the brand name Tobermory is used for all their unpeated malt Whisky, while the (lightly) peated Whisky is sold as Ledaig.

Released in 2016, Tobermory 42 Year Islay Single Malt spent a whopping 42 years in a cask. That’s almost half a century, mind you, and more than enough time for the fruity yet nutty palate to develop unparalleled flavors of charred oak, dark fruit, berries, and a touch of spice. The 650 produced offerings were bottled at a cask strength of 95.4 proof. Without any chill filtering or artificial coloring, naturally.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
