Whisky Reviews for Tobermory 12-year-old whic

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. JungleDram scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The 65.4% vol is quite a hit. On the nose, this is noticeable with an extreme density of aromas. Intense sherry notes, deep red fruits, figs, dates and blackberries, all difficult to separate. The palate is initially a heavy, oily feeling on the tongue. You can not leave it on the tongue for too long, otherwise everything is deaf. Behind it is sweet and creamy, has notes of old leather, de-oiled cocoa and a barely noticeable acidity. The finish is already strongly accompanied by the numb mouthfeel and therefore appears sweet and creamy but also a little expressionless.

    A second sip of water I have saved me first. My experience has shown me that tobermory malts of this style tend to be rather sharp and tingling on the nose and bitter on the palate, if you try the diluted version directly after the undiluted.

      Nose is great - if you play with water - what you should definitely do - it will be much better

      vlt I have not yet found the optimal ABV - I found it slightly dry, slightly bitter and still noticeably sharp at about 55-50% (descending as further diluted) otherwise good drinkable
