    Ahh Tobermory, not my fave distillery as ti tends to be earthy and muddy; but I couldn't resist when I found this for a song at a local LCBO shop in Ontario.

    Sherry and no peat is a little sad, but this bottle really shines as a great example of quality independent cask selection.

      Rich malty and sherry, coastal notes with a twinge of salty brine. It's heady sherry, a touches of yeast and cranberry. It's vegetal, a little farmy too, coca and a slight hint of wilted floral notes too. As it develops there's a tar note, a bit more farmy and a touch more chocolate, less fruits.

      Spicy and dry, hints of brine and earth capture the front end. Loads of sherry spices, dry wood, vanilla and fresh herbs cost in. More salty notes temper the fruits and bring on dryer wood notes, old oak and hints of wet stone too and a touch of honey crests into the finish.

      Long and drawn out. This is tasty stuff, sherry leads, oak follows and malt covers everything. More earthy notes, mossy and a touch of honey again, citrus tingles and something like cereal grains.

    Pleasantly salty and typical Tobermory with more fruits from the cask and a bit less maritime feel than standard bottling.

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    My first Tobermory, there is a clear trace of a relationship with Ladygom through rubber, but there are more fruit and vegetable tones, sweets, in general, not really mine - Ladygger likes it more.
    • Nose
      Open, fresh, green grass, wet grain, broken green apple, malt, window putty, fresh cucumbers, wet grindstone, raw wood, mineral notes, rusty water, rubber.
    • Taste
      Thick, sweet-malty, light notes of rubber, cardboard, some vegetables, fried potatoes, radish, plastic tones.
    • Finish
      Warming, sweet, echoes of rubber, ginger, sweet confectionery notes - shortbread cookies with jam, confiture, radish with honey.

  5. malthead-1984 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I like him very well and is my best Tobermory so far.
    • Nose
      very intense fruity nose, strong exotic influence with overall orange fruits like mandarin mango, pineapple nectarines and prairie oak. A light fresh alcohol carries the flavors. A pretty full but fresh body. Delicate behind it is a spice that some would identify as very light smoke
    • Taste
      In the taste, the spice from the nose comes directly to the tongue, carried by a pleasant Chilicatch, the fruits need a while until they come through but then vanilla sweet
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and is dominated by this slightly smoky seasoning, but has a nice sweetness. Later a nice sea air breeze
