    Nose: Fresh from the bottle he needs a lot of air first, so we wait erstmal..Mmmmh then he opens with a beautiful thick sherry nose. Lots of chocolate, dark fruits, old leather armchair, marzipan, nougat, plum jam, earthy, dirty, a bit salty. The alcohol could be a bit better involved but I forgive him. No sulfur fortunately (now sort out mercilessly). Oranges, herbs, smoked ham. Complex but the aromas can be nicely separated, a wonderful nose. Reminds me of the character a bit of Bunna 12 or Springbank 12 CS.

    Mouth: Slightly oily, spicy, chocolaty, sweet, tart, a nice roller coaster of flavors, wow what a bittersweet chocolate that stays there. The first overshadows everything. Back out a bit of smoked ham, you might think he had a small amount of smoke. Really good drinking strength, I would dilute that no longer, because he loses the bite. Great mouthfeel, but also makes it very tasty.

    Finish: The chocolate lasts forever, does not become too bitter, hardly any spice, feels really for me as if I had eaten a piece of chocolate. Since the dirty flavors no longer appear, clear Lindt 70%

    Horny part, he has nice depth through the age and the flavors are exactly my thing.

    I like it too, but it goes in a different direction than the previously tasted Claxton Tobermory (WID: 127548).
    The Maltman is quite dark in character. Surely he saw sherry too, but also some wood. Overall, it is probably more pleasing since it does not have the special notes as the Claxton.
    • Nose
      Tart plum jam. A little bit of fruit bread. Leather and tobacco. Nutmeg. Toasted nuts. Forest floor. Wet tree bark.
    • Taste
      A mix of sweet and spicy. Forest honey. Grape juice. Chocolate. Some pepper. A little hint of smoke. But is probably more aromatic oak.
    • Finish
      The "smoke" gets colder, the chocolate darker and it gets drier. Some cold coffee.

    Simply the best of all Tobermory I've ever had.
    No junk, but well balanced between fatty Oloroso sherry, a lot of fruit, slightly salt, full-bodied and heavy. Oily.
    At the same time also fine light sea flavors. The typical dirtiness is almost completely missing here. Complex and different than usual.

  7. Rhönräuber scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Oloroso sherry, marzipan, moist earth, salty, a touch of seaweed and campfire
    • Taste
      Classic Oloroso sherry, fruity, orange peel in caramelized cane sugar with lots of cinnamon and again a touch of campfire.
    • Finish
      sweet dark chocolate, unobtrusive campfire flavors, slightly salty.
