Whisky Reviews for Tobermory 1994 KiW

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.82 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    It took me many years to appreciate this type of profile, but I'm definitely a fan of this particular release.
    • Nose
      A touch of copper coins and sour beer, this sure smells like Tobermory to me (Ben Nevis sometimes has this distinct dirtiness as well). Soft tropical fruits as well, such as peaches and mango, but with a hint of vanilla sugar and traces of cloudy apple juice and rye bread.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel and a somewhat sweet (raw sugar) and spicy arrival (white pepper), with just a pinch of salt. A nice amount of almonds, some orange peel and more vanilla sugar.
    • Finish
      Lingering orchard fruits and straw. Medium in length.

    • Nose

      Pear, melon and a hint of leather and a touch of sourness. Good nose: sweet and pleasing.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Prickly like tabasco, hints of nightshade (!) and a lot of honey. Mineral tones too and dry in the mouth. But disappointed by it's age and (for me) lacking complexity. After a couple of sips the pepper disappears and the nightshade is clearly there. But the sweetness is dominant and nothing really happens...
    • Finish
      70 70
      Elegant and sweet finish. Very woody (young wood) with a touch of mushrooms. Calm and gentle.
