  1. Ostap scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The restrained, slightly simple aroma is replaced by a nice taste and a consistent, meaningful aftertaste. Very interesting profile.

      Caramel, sulphurous (boiled egg), rubber and light smoked meat, fatty meat of duck fried in the oven, pear, oatmeal cookies, sour malt, farm, dried fruits, tomato peel, raisins, cupcake, absolutely not alcoholic, restrained aroma, restrained aroma would not hurt a little brighter strokes.

  2. wncvirus scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Some smoke, spices, sweet notes.
    Taste: Light notes of smoke. Unfortunately, noticeable alcohol. Quite aggressive and spicy. The taste becomes flatter after adding water.

    Rating: 86/100 Finish long but too alcoholic. Well, it wasn't some great Tobermory. I have already drunk much better bottles from this distillery

  7. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    A new release in our very appreciated series of powerful Tobermories at cask strength, to once again show how intense and unusual this overlooked distillery can be. Don’t expect a sherry monster, because the wood influence is deliberately kept restrained to avoid clashing with the quirky flavours of the malt. This bottling is a perfect example of a particularly waxy Tobermory, and we might also say that it’s noticeably smokier (more on notes of charcoal than peat) than expected, almost like a Ledaig. The usual flamboyant notes of propolis, camphor, and the leafy and robust malty style of the distillery really shine through. To be enjoyed neat for full power or, for more subtlety.
