    Nice thing, lots of cherry.

    Tasty and very nice ;-) The Tobermory matured in the Oloroso Octave initially seems extremely closed and reserved, luckily this changes over time. A solid sherry filling which convinces with its sweet and fruity nature, nothing more and nothing less ... tastes and pleases!

    • Nose
      Slightly cloudy caramel rests in the Premium Snifter, syrup-like "legs" adhere to the glass wall. The nose appears closed at first, dull fruit aromas with hints of hazelnut and apricots initially refuse. Gradually, more sweetness and fruit appear, caramel, sugar and apricots play with minimal orange. Hints of toffee, milk chocolate and creamy hazelnuts, slowly the nose opens noticeably.
    • Taste
      With the peel of orange peel and dark apricots, the first sip drips onto the tongue. Slightly spicy wooden elements are added, the sweetness increases noticeably, as does a subtle spiciness in the form of wood and with a hint of citrus and grapefruit. The second sip has a noticeably creamier, subtle roasted aromas and intensifying hazelnuts, a few meadow herbs or floral tones are added.
    • Finish
      Chubby warmth lines the palate, nuts and slightly dark wood elements appear, yellow dark fruit flavors stick to the tongue, a slightly stale and pale wood note arises. I form a minimal smoke, as well as a few flakes of butter.

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

    A wonderful, soft, creamy and sherried Tobermory. Round and harmonious without the typical "dirty Tobermory note" that usually disturbs me. The alcohol is wonderfully integrated. A palate flatterer for beautiful evenings.

    I thank deinwhisky.de for the complimentary sample.

    • Nose
      Pleasant sweetness on the nose with sherry aromas, raisins, dates and a little fruity blood orange. This is accompanied by vanilla cream, brown sugar and cinnamon. In the background some oak spice with nutmeg and a hint of salt. Very pleasant indeed.
    • Taste
      The sweetness initially dominates on the palate with raisins, dates and dark toffee. Then becomes a little drier and warmer with dark chocolate. Notes of brown sugar, marzipan and some hazelnut nicely linger towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting, sweet and creamy with fruit jam, dark chocolate, some oak spice and nutmeg.

      With water: With a few drops the single malt becomes a little more lively on the nose with sherry sweetness, vanilla and brown sugar. The alcohol is more noticeable. Still sweet and creamy on the palate with orange, chocolate covered biscuits, vanilla and a slightly warming peppery note. The finish is slightly shorter with sweet orange, cocoa and hazelnut flavours.
