"This limited edition release offers a unique opportunity for discerning whisky fans, collectors and connoisseurs to purchase a historic malt from the only distillery on the picturesque Hebridean Isle of Mull," said Alison Gibb, global marketing manager for Distell's malts portfolio.

Distell took ownership of Tobermory in 2013, when it bought the distillery's parent company, Burn Stewart Distillers, from CL World Brands and Angostura Ltd for ZAR2.2bn (then-US$244m). The South African group also owns Islay's Bunnahabhain as a result of the Burn Stewart purchase.

Nurtured on the Isle of Mull for more than four decades, this incredibly special release will be available exclusively through Global Retail Travel, with only 650 bottles on sale worldwide at £2,500 each.

With a deep walnut colour, this unique malt has an intense, heavily sherried nose with sooty smoke, liquorice and hints of black cherry. While on the palate; bitter dark chocolate, coffee and powerful oak flavours are finished with a dry and spicy salty tail.

Presented in a bespoke presentation box, the malt is revealed via a rotating door, which features an exclusive painting of Tobermory's iconic colourful, waterfront cottages specially created by renowned island artist, Angus Stewart.

Alison Gibb, Global Marketing Manager for Distell's Malts Portfolio, said: "This limited edition release offers a unique opportunity for discerning whisky fans, collectors and connoisseurs to purchase a historic malt from the only distillery on the picturesque Hebridean Isle of Mull.
