Whisky Reviews for Tobermory 2008 Cl

3 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.

  2. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A tasty, complex Tobermory from a PX Sherry Octave. Sweet aromas, dark fruit and dry cocoa notes are in harmony with spicy oak and a touch of cigar box. Typical aromas from a PX Sherry cask maturation, which in comparison to the Oloroso bottling of the same age, are significantly drier and less sweet. Very well drinkable without water.

    I thank deinwhisky.de for the complimentary sample!

    • Nose
      Notes of raisins, sherry, red berries and oranges on the nose, accompanied by a nice sweetness. This is followed by dark chocolate, black tea, cocoa and a touch of floral aromas with a whiff of cigar box in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet and creamy on the palate with brown sugar, dates and raisins. Warming with a slightly alcoholic spiciness, accompanied by nutmeg, cinnamon and a little spicy oak.
    • Finish
      The finish shows a beautiful length with increasingly dry aromas of nutmeg, nut, cocoa and oak spice.

      With water: Less sweetness on the nose after adding a few drops of water. More oak spice, cocoa, grapefruit and tobacco notes come to the fore. Sweet and creamy on the palate at first, but becomes increasingly peppery and prickling on the tongue with bitter orange and a touch of grapefuit. The finish is still long and dry with notes of oak, cocoa, some pepper and tobacco leaves.
