  1. Chickenfish scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    A perfectly rounded highland whisky with a good combination of a lingering malty goodness and a complexity that develops upon a closer look. Initially, quite spicy but upon oxidation, the bright notes begin to shine.
    Bottle No 2294490L51507 21285
    • Nose
      The first note is barley sugar. Then some malty banana comes along, perhaps even baked or overripe banana. A little sour note, sour cherries. Distant whiff of forest flowers. Green leaves and the freshly peeled off bark of a cherry tree.
    • Taste
      Fresh and floral. Banana and pear. Malty. Oak spices. Light taste of pickled ginger. Strong caramel sweetness develops into a wonderful herbal fruity note. Green tea, green apple, ripe kiwi, melon.
    • Finish
      The herbal and fruity notes linger on. Green apple and mint. Green tea with some dried fruits, such as banana and mango. Medium long. Sweet overall but sufficiently complex.

    Nice standard with classic notes

  5. WhiskyNerdAu scored this whisky 72 points Newbie

    You simply cannot go wrong with a Tobermory scotch. Decent mainstay for any shelf.
    • Nose
      Toast, salted caramel, toffee, and hints of briny seaside air.
    • Taste
      Toffee and salted caramel continuing on the palate… very consistent with the nose. Lovely, relatively complex but also a tiny bit hot on the first sip. Added 3 drops of water and it became very friendly and enjoyable… interesting that this was necessary on a lower abv.
      Slightly nutty… macadamia or pistachio?
    • Finish
      Short, simple, sweet.

    Sweet nose and taste, unpeated, oily mouthfeel with ex-bourbon flavours of honey and vanilla. Really rather good NCF whisky.
