Tobermory 10

Today I am reviewing Tobermory 10. Tobermory Distillery is the only distillery in the Isle of Mull. It is one of the oldest as well, established in 1798... of wow 😀 really? What a legacy. They produce two kinds of whiskies -Non peated Tobermory & the heavily peated Ledaig. Their product line also includes gin. 
The interesting part is due to its location in the coast, the flavor reflects maritime influence with subtle salty notes. It is very unique & one that many single malt lovers would be caught by surprise. 
Now lets get to the tasting info , Enjoy!
