    Ledaig 10's older, tamer brother.
    I couldn't resist.
    Let's check it out!

    Tame, but elegant. I'd buy it again for up to $65 USD, but I'd avoid it above that cost.
    An older Bruichladdich Classic Laddie in style and form.

    Tasted in a pair with Grangestone double cask (closest I have in cask profile, but FAR worse) and Arran 'The Bothy' quarter cask CS.

    I'd buy this over an Arran quarter cask CS any day due to the increased engagement and balanced oak profile. The Arran QC CS is far more tannic and difficult to enjoy.

    Tobermory Aged 12 Years SMSW, 46.3%.

    50ml miniature Sep 2022.

    Golden yellow.

    Aroma is quite muted, soft vanilla and pebbles, polished metal, hint of tomato vine.

    Body is quite watery.

    Taste is salty spirit, some prosecco flavours come through in the middle, then some oak and white wine flavours, as though the whisky had spent time in a white wine cask, leading to a quite bitter charred peppery finish, almost chilli-like.

    A bit of a mixed bag. I like the individual aspects of this but I feel like they clash a bit with each other. A light fruity character can be great, and a bold peppery-chilli finish can sometimes be good too ... but stick them together and I’m a bit lost. On the whole it’s middle of the road to slightly below average for me. 3.3/79

    Great 12 year old version of Tobermory!
    Got what I expected and more.
    A subtle, complex aroma easily finds its continuation in a rather deep and interesting taste.

    22 22 21 20
    • Nose
      Subtle fruity freshness, something cognac like strawberry jam and tobacco leaf, tropical fruit lollipops, peppery-spicy notes, thinner, honey, citruses, but I don’t smell Virgin Oak cloves.
      There are some signature notes, but very distant ones - something like a sulfur-metal profile and a slight mustiness of singed leaves, interesting notes of wet paper, almond biscuits sprinkled with honey.
      As it should be, in air the fermentation and the solvent fade away.
      Saturation: 9 out of 10
    • Taste
      It goes further than the aroma, gives out a more voluminous picture with its bright acidity and sweetness of the fruity palette.
      Pleasantly pleased, although it was not without echoes of duchesse on backing vocals, solvent and farm tones. Lemon juice and quite a lot of it, extreme peppery burning, prominent woody, tannic notes, pear-apple jam with slices of this fruit and astringent notes of the bark of young twigs.
      Sweetness: 8 out of 10
      Saturation: 8 out of 10
    • Finish
      Apple-pear sweetness and cloying, a slight bitterness of tannins and very distant woodiness, astringent quince.

    Might sound a bit strange, but this one resembles Red Breast 12 to me on the nose. It is a good one. Yet still Ledaig 10 will remain my favourite of this distillery. Spiciness comes from virgin oak caks.
    • Nose
      Dark fruits, citrusy, grape sugar.
    • Taste
      Spicy, dark fruits again, sweet. I sense a bit of sherry in it. Though I am not entirely sure about it.
    • Finish
      Still that sherry. But I still think, that they do not use sherry casks with this one.

  7. uap304 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    If I’m being totally honest, this whisky disappointed me, especially compared to their joyous Ledaig. The underlying character of floral and maritime is there, but something seems to be holding it back. A sherry overcoat “finish” would make the most sense because I’m getting sherry influence all over this dram.
    • Nose
      Rich and unfortunately cloyingly sweet and syrupy. Chocolate, raisins, vanilla, fresh fruit, and faint butterscotch custard. There is a “musty,” “dirty” feel to this nose. And you’re telling me there’s no sherry involved?!
    • Taste
      Rich, chewy, sweet, full-bodied, and salty salty! Sweet barley grain, kinda quick and clean, with sultanas and dandelion flowers.
    • Finish
      This is where it unravels for me. There is a nice sweet and salty effervescence, which gives way to dry tannins and astringency. There is clove and nutmeg, and again that musty oak feeling with a violet/rose soap note at the end. Kinda yucky.

  8. Stefan89 scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    At first I wasn't so enthusiastic when I compared it with the 10y ledaig oa and the 10y ledaig Rioja immediately after opening it.
    But now, a few months later, for a cigar on the terrace in the summer after a barbecue, it's really good. Nice sweet and a perfect complement to the cigar.
    For less than 40€ I give a buy recommendation. Glad I bought 2.

    S 7
    Thin, light legs. Second sample after six months, not oily anymore, perhaps a different batch? A fine balance between malt, fruits, and oak spices. Would make a great introduction to the whisky world.

    [78-82] I'll gladly welcome another dram.

    N 25
    Juicy fruits. Butterscotch. Floral vanilla. Oak. Runny honey. Malt. A whiff of peppery spices and zesty orange peels. Coastal breeze from miles away.

    P 25
    Rich and mouthcoating. Pleasant peppery oak spices. Nutty. Fairly malty at first, masking the underlying fruits. Continue swirling to bring up the stone fruit characters (crispy peach, yellow plum)

    F 23
    Short, slightly dry finish. Light fruits. Mildly oaky.

  11. WhiskyShaman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I just found a new indie whisky shop near my parent's that has so much good stuff but I was unprepared and blinded by indecision, so only bought this (I did go back the next day and the day after that).

    I've had Ledaig before but not this and it really is the perfect counterpoint to their peated whisky: Bright green fruit, herbs, umami funk, tree sap and wood influence. It's the Yin to Ledaig's Yang. Or visa versa.

    Initially, I felt like this really needed some spice to it, to counter the juicy sweet and sour fruit that was so dominating and when I first tried it, it just wasn't there.

    On day 2 there was a noticible change in the finish, where the oak really kicked in. The spice-heat and dryness from the wood just kind of appeared in the tail and it all came together.

    I really liked this. I'm probably going to get a big one, eventually.

    As a random aside, I also found the branding suits the personality of this whisky really well.

  13. niggy1813 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A nice complex whisky that offers something for everyone. Shows a lot of spices and oaky flavours (I assume as a result of the virgin oak cask it was finished in) as well as sweetness and fruitiness, especially at the beginning. It's maybe not something what you could expect from an island whisky, but it's of course a very good 12 years old allrounder.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Many oaky notes are harmonising with mirabelles, yellow apples and honey. The label implies floral notes but I find them very difficult to discern. All in all it's more complex than expected, especially to name all the spicy notes.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Wow, very gentle and smooth but nethertheless with all the spices. Less sweetness than the nose predicted.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Again very spicy and stronger than before. Getting a bit bitter in the end.

  15. aboutWhisky scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Tobermory has to be commended for the cask selection here. Even if the 12-year-old is the youngest standard bottling of the distillery, we are far from a mild entry-level whisky. One notices immediately that these are not old, discarded casks, but fresh, first-fill bourbon casks. The fresh oak barrels set an interesting contrast with their power and spice. In my opinion, the 12-year-old clearly wins against the 10-year-old who was withdrawn from the market. Well done!

    https://www.aboutwhisky.de/tastingnotes/tobermory-12-years/
    • Nose
      A very strong start! You immediately notice that you are mainly dealing with first-fill ex-bourbon casks. I immediately think of sweet caramel, vanilla, shortbread and marzipan. Apples, pears and citrus fruits also come through. As a counterpoint to this, significantly spicier notes of oak appear relatively quickly. These remind me of spice cakes, toasted bread and mocha beans. I also have to think of dried herbs and aniseed candies. These opposites make the nose really complex!
    • Taste
      He needs no start-up time and goes straight to the full. He spreads warm in the mouth. At first it is clearly sweet, but then the oak slowly pushes itself to the fore.
    • Finish
      The caramel and the sweet fruits can still be felt towards the finish. The sweetness then decreases towards the end and the mouthfeel becomes drier and slightly bitter with roasted coffee and oak. The finish is comparatively long.

    S 6
    Nose was deceptive at first, for a sec I thought it’s sherry casked. Palate was oak-driven while remaining finely balanced with the fruit sweetness. Personally, not a fan of oily whisky hence a deduction on the nose.

    Warm spices (nutmeg)

    Because of the excellent performance of the Ledaig 10,
    So I went ahead and tasted the bottle.
    To me, the taste of this bottle is very familiar,
    Like Dalwhinnie 15 which is more oaky and sea salty.

    Beginning full of honey, followed by fresh oak, vanilla, malty sweetness, cream, vanilla.
    Afterwards, the taste of sea salt emerges in the mouth. After swallowing, the finish is full of honey fragrance and mild oak texture. It is very comfortable and I like it very much.
    There is no pungency of alcohol during the whole tasting process and it is very smooth.
    The price of Tobermory 12 and Dalwhinnie 15 are almost the same, and the tone is similar.
    Tobermory 12 is more oaky and more woody. Dalwhinnie 15 is very refreshing and floral.
    Both are excellent examples of Scottish bourbon cask whisky, but if I had to choose one, it would be Dalwhinnie 15.

    Taste score 85 points.

    C: A lot has changed/improved since I last tried this in,… crikey, pre-2013!! Firstly, Tobermory’s entry-level age-stated core range malt used to be a 10yo – so there’s two years age difference for starters – and [as a result] there’s way more body. Perhaps there have been fermentation changes as well as an improved maturation policy, I enquire? Indeed there have. These changes make for a rather appealing nicely weighted malty dram, whilst still retaining a [desirable] homemade roughness.

    Decent, available, and affordable! We are [provisionally] talking around 83-84 points.

    Quick hit review.

    Tobermory's recent adjustment of the core range replaced the 10-year-old with this expression. Let's see what two more years can do! Sweet apricots, sage and hints of salt characterize the nose, all very fresh and fruity. On the palate, unripe peach and orange zest mingle with spicy and mineral notes. It might be a bit youngish, but very enjoyable. Drying oak, brine and a dash of pepper linger in the finish. A good standard bottle, and definitely a step up from the 10.

    Nose: soft impression with the faintest alcohol prickle. You can tell it’s matured in good quality casks. Quite closed and dense without water. Sweet.
    Malty, spicy, honeyed, fruity, floral. Has a dark maltiness, almost mixing barley sugars with a little bit of treacle or molasses. Crystallised ginger, perhaps a bit of dusty nutmeg bring the spice. I definitely smell sherry casks in this, but that’s probably the virgin oak influence. Banana, overripe pear, some lemony citrus notes. There’s light floral nuances - I’m thinking of jasmine, especially jasmine absolute, which similarly to this whisky can mix lightness with a heavy indolic darkness.

    Palate: Sweet, malty and honeyed. Then spicy and resinous, reminds me of pine resin and needles. Perhaps the green aspects of cardamom in the spice? As with the nose, a bit water accentuates the lighter fruity notes. Finish - didn’t know they made rum on Mull! Molasses, banana, esters… fascinating.

    Overall, a testament to the quality currently produced on the Isle of Mull. This malt has lots of charisma, although I suspect it’s doomed to live in the shadow of its little brother, the 10-year old peated Ledaig. All in all that’s fair, the Ledaig is an instant classic, peated vs unpeated styles notwithstanding, everything about is just right. The Tobermory feels like some aspects of it are fighting in each other, with the end result being just ever so slightly muted.

    Still, you need to try this charismatic malt at least once.

      N- After a dozen of Bruichladdich, take a break and go north of Islay. A relaunched after the distillery was closed for renovation. Initial nutmeg syrup developed to creamy vanilla and ginger over dried orange and mandarin. Rather simple and direct with sweet notes of sugar pastries. (85/19)

      The combination of ex-bourbon and virgin oak barrels rises surprisingly well in the nose. The notes you would expect from the former (apples, vanilla) harmonize surprisingly well with a strong oak note, with which I associate Virgin Oak.

    I was convinced there was some sherry in this, but it turns out there isn't. Stone fruits, caramel, vanilla, nuts, Bounty bar, hint of dark fruits. Malty. Slightly mineral but creamy at the same time. Lovely mouthfeel. Delicious, though in a side-by-side I actually found the discontinued 10 year old to be slightly more complex. I know I'm in the minority there.

  46. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    The nose starts fresh, creamy and light-fruity of unripe pears and gooseberries. There is a trace of malt behind it.

    Very fruity-sweet and intense in the mouth.

    In the finish, first a gush of oak, then a little darker forest honey and the fruity notes from the nose.
    Length: 4/10

    The dominant oak note destroys the fragile, sweet basic tones a little, and it also seems relatively interchangeable and too little island-like. Overall, however, a good standard

    Grade: 2

    To be blunt, this is Tobermory 10yo bourbon finish. I don't disagree with it in the sense that it does improve over the 10yo, but
    • Nose
      Much less elemental and farmy than the 10yo. A similar base, but a bourbon sweetness on top of it does help mask the simplicity and blandness of the 10yo. Quite a bit more wood here, as well as some hemp rope. Other than that, the farmy, yeasty, hay-ish descriptors of the 10yo apply.
    • Taste
      Almost the same whisky as the 10yo, just with a sprinkle more bourbon and musty leather on top. I like the firmness of the 46 % body, but there is no magic or detail to be found here.
    • Finish
      Malts with a bourbon coating. Some bourbon cask fruitiness emerges in the tail.

    Unlike many other distilleries, filling their core ranges with NAS young whiskies, Tobermory has moved its younger expression from 10 to 12 y.o.
    At first approach this one may appear quite easy, with its warm vanilla and fruity notes, it quickly reveals a complex maritime character, full of salty sweetness and a pleasant malty flavour.
    It's easily drinkable for sure, but displaying a depth, intriguing to explore until its full bodied oak and slightly spicy ending. Another fully convincing expression from Tobermory; worth a try and more.

  57. Stef89 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    I like it very much. Is a modern composition with a lot of wood, a lot of vanilla, a lot of fruit and again a lot of wood.
    The main thing is a lot of everything.
    I like that, but it quickly gets monotonous.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Lots of sweetness, lots of flavor. Alcohol makes your nose tingle. The orange filling from the Jaffa biscuits. Hrapefruit and something slightly salty. Looks very charged and wood-heavy. But still very tasty on the nose
    • Taste
      85 85
      Strong, very spicy start. Slightly herbaceous and then nice and sweet. Since I had the Jaffa biscuit orange filling association, I can't get rid of it.
      Fruits become more intense and can be grasped slowly. Pear, tart apple and then the fruit turns into yellow juicy fruits. Again, very wood-heavy.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Not excessively long but sufficient. What has been tasted and smelled so far is continued. Only the intensive wood alone becomes too much here in places and thus also monotonous.

      First impression is loads of fresh fruit. Fresh green apples and pear. Rich malty notes (sweet), new wood and a hint of sulfur (burnt matches), which does not ruin too much here.

      With water: More spices appear, peppery notes especially
    • Taste
      82 82
      Sweet and sour. Very grainy, fresh fruits not as dominant as in the nose. Malty sweetness and citric sourness. Sulfur notes not very present on the palate, more like old cigar box/tobacco than burnt matches. It's spicy, with pepper as the dominant character.

      With water: Fruits are now more present on the palate.

    This is my first Tobermory - and a good one, I must say.

    Floral, fruity, beeswax and woody notes on the nose;
    ginger and forest honey and caramel on the arrival, salty, fruity sweet-sourness, then herbacious bitterness follows. Long finish.
    The mouthfeel I find very round and pleasant on the arrival, rather dry on the finish.
    Natural colour, 46.3 %, very good quality, in my opinion.

    Aside from that, I also like the presentation very much. Seems that it's made with care. But I won't give a bonus point for that - just saying that I like it :D

    The nose promises a lot, especially fresh fruit. In the taste, however, a malty-grainy character dominates.
    You expect something different from what you get ... it's ok, but doesn't knock you off your feet.
    ['really not bad'-whisky --- but do I need a bottle?]
    • Nose
      84 84
      The focus here is on sweetness and fruitiness, with the focus more on the fruits: ripe apples and tropical fruits such as bananas and pineapples.
      Behind it a spice of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper together with a (dry) hay aroma.
      When it comes to the sweetness, powdered sugar, vanilla and a little honey come through.
      If you stick your nose deep into the glass, a dominant floral note of lavender is added. At the same time something freshly mint can be grabbed, whereby the alcohol appears to be quite well integrated.
      After the first sip, a soapy hazelnut / walnut aroma appears in the nose.
    • Taste
      79 79
      very gentle start. malty, grainy notes are now in the foreground; There is not so much left of the fruit on the first sip. It swings briefly into a bitterness, but quickly gets the curve back to the malty note.
      The second sip is sweeter and the fruits come into their own again, but the malty and grainy aroma remains dominant.
      The spiciness can be found, although not as strong as in the nose.
      An oak note is present, but remains discreetly in the background.
    • Finish
      75 75

    Rather rich and pretty well put together, this Tobermory is a wonderful introduction to the distillery.
    • Nose
      Quite earthy with a hint of sweet malt and vanilla custard, but also some orange zest. Just a tinge of copper coins and plenty of minerality. Finally a whiff of honey and subtle stone fruits.
    • Taste
      Nice barley notes accompanied by pretty vibrant citrus flavours, quickly followed by a hit of oak shavings and spices — this is were the virgin oak makes its presence known. The whisky becomes slightly herbal and vegetal after.

    This is an interesting one, but ultimately, I didn’t love it. There’s so much earth and seaside, at the expense of almost all the sweetness in the back half of the dram. I’d definitely call it unbalanced, but if those punky-wood, coastal, earthy flavours are your jam, you might dig this. It didn’t really do a whole lot for me though. I prefer the old version. If you’re finding whisky too sweet lately, give this one a go.

    Nose: Coastal and lightly sweet. Apple, pear, lemon, some peach, (heavily-)salted caramel, and buttery shortbread. It’s definitely earthy: there’s mud, some pine, tobacco, and maybe a whiff of rocky beach. There’s some kind of salted nuts in there as well as some malted barley. There’s a bit of a solvent-y note in here, but it comes across to me more as part of the brine rather than something obtrusive.

    Palate: Medium texture, slightly oily. Caramel, toffee, apple, vanilla, and nutmeg up front, before a quick development into something much earthier and dry. There’s a good dose of black pepper, the bitterness of punky (rotting) seaside wood, lots of leather, salt, and of course, salt. Very dusty, with something like bitter honey.

    Finish: Medium-length. A punch of woody, earthy, and dry. Salt-drenched coastal forest (much like they have on Mull, actually), clay, salt, tobacco, and herbs. Some banana, lemon, and dark chocolate, with more of that bitter honey. There’s the slightest hint of pastries wafting over.

    Nose : a bit shy first, on gingerbread and green fruits. Then maltier, with hot spices and citrus notes. Opens up a lot with time.
    Mouth : Rather creamy texture. Spicy yet smooth. In harmony with the nose. Not overly complex but does nicely with what it has.
    Short finish, sadly.

    Mostly a game of influence between swteeness/spices/citric notes that keeps evolving. Needs some time and air. Somewhere around 40-45€ feels a good price/quality ratio. I'm very curious about higher end bottles after the 10 et 12 y-o.

      First sweet mixed with herbs. I'll say herbal tea with a lot of sugar candy. But then a seasoning to sharpness. In the tea you have added a fresh ginger slice and on the bite you just. Fruit muesli with light to yellow fruits (here, too, the fruits are somewhat artificial for me)

  98. Misterioso scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is to replace the Tobermory 10 and for me to say the least a total disappointment.
    I wonder what whisky the other reviewers may have had in the glass. In any case, in my bottle purchased in the Netherlands, of all the flavors described, there is hardly anything to be found. According to paper, this whisky should have matured in ex-bourbon barrels and then have experienced a ripening in the Virgin Oak. Exactly on it lets close the nose, there appear but slight fresh wood notes and a little sweetness and otherwise almost nothing. Even after waiting for a quarter of an hour, there is no significant change.
    Fruit notes, vanilla, cereal notes are virtually non-existent and it stays that way.
    That makes me conclude that the bourbon barrels have been refilled and that they did not add much to the additive ripening of this whisky and left little traces.
    In any case, I find only the poor flavors (sweet and fresh oak) from a typical Virgin Oak ripening, which are a no go for me.
    In the taste, everything points to the Virgin Oak ripening. The whisky is predominantly disgustingly sweet, complemented by a subtle grain note and also a patched and discordant fresh oak emerges again.
    Behind these dominant aromas you can find with a little imagination also a modest vanilla note, a little bit of citrus and something nutty with a lot of imagination. That's it.
    In the mouth and on the finish, it shows a strong alcoholic sharpness, which I find unpleasant, again the sticky sweetness and a little oak.
    Yes, what should one say about that?
    This one-dimensional whisky is a huge disappointment to me and has in no way met my expectations.
    I am even more disappointed with Tobermory's product management, which claims that after a two-year distillery revision, they celebrate the reopening with such a dubious whisky, taking the ever-improving 10s off the market.
    Supplement!
    Due to the high ratings given here, I had some doubts about my sense of taste. After bravely trying to find access to this whisky, my judgment has not changed. Interestingly, on Youtube I found a tasting video from Pat Hock about this whisky, which obviously tasted a bottle from the same batch with the same attributes and the same result. This actually indicates different batches in the market with significant differences in quality. Since everyone can now make his own judgment over it, for me, the topic Tobermory is, however, initially done.

    Great nose, beautiful interplay between sweetness and spice, always accompanied by a subtle fruitiness and a very pleasant sulfur note for me. The fruit flavors are constantly changing. Sometimes plums flash, then tropical fruits like pineapple.
    Also very balanced in the mouth, but not boring. Medium long, sweet and spicy finish with very pleasant tannins.

    Very different from the ten-year-old it replaces. Initially I was under the assumption that some sherry casks must have been involved because this is so much rounder, sweeter, darker, and more cask-driven. Turns out I was wrong, but not completely: in contrast to the older 10 y.o., this bottling has indeed seen some "tampering", but not by means of ex-sherry-cask maturation. Instead, they used virgin oak for reracking (or finishing) the liquid.

    At any rate, the result is a success. Whereas I love me a twenty-and-up Tobermory, the regular Ten was always too yeasty and young, sour-bitter and raw for me. This, on the other hand, seems much more mature, much more well-composed and inviting. Either the two additional years of maturation have really made a difference, or the virgin oak has mellowed things out, or they've simply selected better casks.

    In sum, what we have here is the best of two worlds: the maritime, salty and briny Tobermory character is still very much on display, but it is counterbalanced beautifully by a rich and creamy sweetness from the oak (without becoming "woody" per se). Dangerously drinkable yet inherently complex. Oh, and affordable! Can we have more official bottlings like this one, please?

      Caramel and sea salt with a side of vegetal brine and creamy American oak. Rich, sweet, oily.
    • Taste

      Thick, chewy, lush and sweet initially. A burst of fruity acidity on the mid-palate. Then the peppery spice kicks in and carries things forward into a sour and zingy finale.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Ginger and lemongrass. Medium in length and very more-ish.

    Very floral, this nose. With camphor, light peat and smoke. Then the exotic fruits appear. Mango, lychee. A minty touch. Caramel. Eucalyptus. Vaporub. Tire, rubber, tar. Finally, the sea air. Salt, seaweed, foam. All this follows one another, in stages.
    In the mouth, always the flowers. Roses, cherry trees. Vanilla and caramel. Finally, the pepper that rises. Cloves. Spices in the finish, vanilla pod, very long. Camphor, menthol and coconut mingle with caramel. Impression of freshness.
