Whisky Reviews for Tobermory Sherry Bomb VM
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.29 points
- True to its name... sherry, sherry, scherry!!! Typical sherry nose with lots of dark red fruits and a bit of tobacco and leather. The same on the palate, but here the oak is more present. Long finish, which gets a bit bitter in the end. Well done.
- Cough Syrup & Tomato Soup
Cooper’s Choice – a label of the Vintage Malt Whisky Company – already released a few NAS-whiskies under the banner ‘Sherry Bomb’ and I’ve had the good fortune of trying a couple. If you like ‘deep sherry’, you’ll love this, I’m sure. Here is another one of those, a Tobermory that matured on a first fill sherry cask and was then bottled at cask strength. It hit the shelves in 2019.
Plum marmalade, cough syrup and a dusty attic. That’s the nose of this whisky in a nutshell. Patience also delivers cherry candy, caramel and a hint of broth. Delicious.
The body may be light, but the taste is right. A good continuation of the nose on dark marmalade, caramel, cherry candy and lots of cough syrup. It does become quite feisty on chili peppers, cloves and something that reminds me of tomato soup. That’s the lovely umami touch again.
The finish is not overly long and the spices fade away quickly to make room for dark, sweet and candy like notes.
Surprisingly medicinal and umami Tobermory, but I quite like it. Around 100 EUR.
Dust, plums, alcohol-infused medicine

Conclusion: The aroma components do not form a unit here. Everything seems fake. Not a bad whisky, but far from the best sherry bomb.
