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.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
