Whisky Reviews for Tobermory 2008 Cl

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The similarity to the Tobermory matured in the Oloroso Octave is astonishing! The PX matured looks a little more voluminous and intense, the PX finish has a more dominant effect on the taste and nose. The Oloroso Octave is more closed and "tender", the PX is more dominant and powerful. A nice comparison regarding the different barrel variants. In terms of taste, the PX appeals to me a bit better, so I give this tasty drink another point.

    • Nose
      Compared to the Oloroso Tobermory, this one looks darker (intense amber), but just as cloudy. On the glass wall of my Premium Snifter a viscous streak has formed, from which a multitude of oily "legs" also come loose and search their way back into the glass in oily channels. Creamy dried berries come into their own, caramel and sweet apricots merge with hints of velvety vineyard peach to a fruity mass. Slightly dry wood tones are mixed with a hint of sour cherries and currants, mandarins and toffee are added. After a few minutes, sweet fruit floods the nose, raisins and peach stimulate the saliva.
    • Taste
      The first sip sloshes through the mouth, voluminous and mild. Dark and dried berries stick to the cheeks, caramelized sugar plays with sour cherries, toffee drips on spicy wood. A hint of roasted hazelnuts and cedarwood also comes, the mouthfeel is just as creamy, if a little more voluminous compared to the Oloroso Tobermory. Minimal grapefruit and herbs come into their own, nutty taste and aftertaste blur.
    • Finish
      Chubby warmth lines the palate, nuts and slightly smoky wood elements appear, dried fruit flavors stick to the tongue. Again I fancy a minimal smoke note, as well as a few melted flakes of butter.
