    Tolle Nase, sauberer Abgang... der pfeffrige Antritt im Mundraum gefällt mir weniger.

    Insgesamt dennoch ein toller Malt - auf Tobermory wäre man nicht gekommen. Auch wenn ein leicht "dreckiger" Unterton in der Nase die Richtung aufzeigte...

    Why is this series being shipped with tubes at once? As a collector, I would prefer a uniform appearance. As Homo Oeconomicus I can do without packaging. And if such "cheap" cardboard tubes are perceived by the buyer as "high quality", I would like to doubt.

    Tap that this was a fino-sherry keg. That would explain both the color and the tasting notes. So you should know what you get involved in here (bright fruits, dry sherry sweetness and spicy wood) otherwise you will be bitterly disappointed if you expect Oloroso or PX notes.

    T he diversity is just what so fun when whisky to yesterday Glendronach this one is just completely different and requires its drinkers from significantly more. This is certainly not for a starter. But wood lovers will get their money's worth here. He will definitely find his lover. Qualitatively, he can fully convince only the characteristics are demanding.

      S o on the Toby I was already very happy, you have as an independent bottle so not every day in the glass. But it comes very mild, without much frills, you have to pick it up correctly in the glass. Even after a longer life you only have light sherry notes in the nose. Very bright and fresh, with some meadow herbs. Then, similar to a rum finish, there are very few yellow tropical fruits and ginger sharpness. Alcohol easily gets into your nose. If you take a little time, you also notice a hint of wood, but it has hidden a bit. It remains so mild, even after a good 30 minutes, flavors become a bit clearer and you can classify them nicely. It's fun, but it does not really kill you.
    • Taste
      G ust the first contact on the palate you will be really surprised by a peppery, then it attracts more dry on the tongue. It is really very dry, once you've got that moment over, the palate gets used to it. Now fruit pushes itself before the pepper and sweetness joins after the dryness, which however also decreases clearly and flares up only briefly. You have to play with this Toby, practically even tame something. Overall, but for me too little sherry expression for a 1st Fill Sherry. After a while you suddenly notice a clear woody note, which sits nicely in front of the finish and remains. Wood, but not unpleasant, just wood and the right spice with a little more fruity sweetness.
    • Finish
      L eider of disposal has become a bit too weak me is oversubscribed wood and the remaining sweetness. He could certainly give a little gas. But well, you just have to take him as we are. After a long time after the last sip, I have quite a pear in my mouth.

    Untypical Tobermory

    Nose: little sherry smell with light fruits in the background dry wood

    Taste: Round, oily and pleasant mouthfeel, star fruit, dry. At the beginning, white pepper, then it remains long and even unspectacular. The expected strong sherry influence for a 1st fill sherry is missing.

    Finish: Medium long, dry

    Conclusion: For 1st Fill Sherry a little sherry typical taste. With water come out more flavors - dry.

    I think you should have a longer time in the glass before you drink it. Then maybe even more taste impressions come out.
