  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Along the lines of cask 697 released by Whiskybroker in 2012, and the RBTW bottling from 2015. It doesn't have the dirty and smoky notes which cask 20 from 2016 has. It's the most full-bodied one of the ones I mentioned.
    • Nose
      Sweet lime, honey, tangerine and almond.
    • Taste
      Honey, pepper, tangerine and almond.
    • Finish
      Honey, orange, almond and pepper.

    Zespri

    Last year the Scottish bottler Whisky Broker released this Tobermory. It matured for 22 long years on a hogshead that yielded 283 bottles at cask strength.

    On the very sweet nose – that shows little of the typical Tobermory mustiness – I get mostly vanilla, gooseberries and grainy wood. Zespri! A soft trace of woodsmoke and quite some rum raisins. Some yoghurt with pineapple. I quite like this.

    Powerful arrival on the palate. Feisty on white pepper and some tannins. But again very sweet. Reminds me a bit of Turkish pastry, drenched in honey. Apricots. Oranges. Chili pepper, liquorice and cardamom. Again that lovely trace of woodsmoke. Almost as if this was distilled right after a Ledaig run, but they had forgone cleaning the pipes.

    Lovely finish that remains spicy and sweet until the death.

    This is a twin to the Tobermory 1995 that was bottled at the end of 2017 by the Italian bottler Valinch & Mallet. Only this one only costs half.

    N: Another strong mineral=malt, oily and sweet. Rather Ben Nevis-like at times, so we are firmly West Coast

    T: Edgy yet soft, mineral/malty>oily>vegetal form.

    F: Same again with soft prickles.

    C: Throughly consistent form with neat steps/stages.

  8. theograph scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Super sweet in the nose, very maritime on the palate, fruit gets more and more into the background with time, finally a straightforward ex-Bourbon representative. I like it!
    • Nose
      Extremely sweet, tropical fruits, dried pineapple, lemon, malt rich, oak, menthol, finally clearly maritime, coast, salt;
    • Taste
      Pepper, malt, slightly spicy and quite strong, clearly maritime, salty, wet stones, oak full, noticeably less fruit accents, dry;
      With water: clearly creamy vanilla, coast, salt, oak, hardly fruit accents, later earthy notes appear;
    • Finish
      Slips neatly, rather long and dry, almost powerful, no frills;
