    One of four bottles in Hard to Find Whisky’s ‘Casino Series’. All four bottles in this series are Tobermory 21 Year Old single malts that have individually been finished in different cask types. This #Blackjack bottling was finished in a heavily peated ex-Islay cask that has resulted in lovely undertones of peat smoke throughout. These combine fantastically well with hints of citrus fruits, zest, butterscotch and freshly cut grass to create a well-balanced and generally delicious dram. Only 117 bottles of this cask strength single malt were produced. The ideal gift for any fan of Tobermory or Islay whisky.
