Tasting Notes-Tobermory 24 Year Old Chorlton Whisky
On the Nose: You find walnut cake, dark berries, and a distinctly coastal feel with just a touch of peat. The Palate: Mouthfilling, with orange liqueur, cherry, brown sugar and a tingle of salt. Finish: Rich and long with dark chocolate and candied ginger-notes from the distillery.
Is the only distillery on the Island of Mull and was established in 1798 and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. It produces two different, but equally alluring, single malts: the fruity, unpeated Tobermory, and the more robust and smoky Ledaig.
In 1797 John Sinclair, a local kelp merchant, applied for the lease of 57 acres of land on the area known as Ledaig in order to build housing and a distillery.
Distilling was, however, banned in Britain between 1795 and 1797 in order to conserve grain stores for the War of the First Coalition with France. As a result, his application was rejected and he was only granted permission to build a brewery. However, Sinclair was not a man to give up that easily. He remained true to his original plan and a year later in 1798 Ledaig Distillery was established. Over the next hundred years the distillery made its mark on the island. Nevertheless, the Great Depression of the 1930s, coupled with a decade of prohibition in the USA, saw demand for whisky plummet. The distillery would cease to operate for 41 long years.
In 1971, the Ledaig Distillery (Tobermory Ltd.) reopened and this momentous year was marked by a limited edition release. But the 1970s were to bring their own economic troubles and the years ahead were punctuated with highs, lows and further closures. The 1980’s saw the distillery warehouses being converted into flats and showed signs that this was the beginning of the end. In 1993 the distillery was purchased by Burns Stewart Distillers. Since then it has become the jewel in the island’s crown and still uses traditional methods.
