    N: Wowee, all the things - massively old style. Carbolic dirty/gritty garage notes, malty old sherry leather and all the stuff in-between.
    T: Same again, a dirty sherry malt.
    F: More dirt on oily creamy sherry and woody toasted sherry vanilla. Lovely dry sweetness, a little nutty.
    C: A fine demonstration of how superb Tobermory can be when the distillery’s issues & idiosyncrasies work together.Scores a B[+}

    • Nose
      Sharp, gritty, clear sherry. Fruitier as it opens, stewed apple, getting sweeter with cinnamon. Cream, switching between sweet and sour.

      With water, a burst of dirty sherry, sweetly spiced and warming. Late on, demerara sugar emerges.
    • Taste
      Sweet, full-bodied, with the stewed apple note coming through from the nose. Mineral, flinty. Noticable but balanced sherry influence.

      With water, slightly fizzy, honeyed, really lovely.
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet, cleaner

    Malt. Honey, vanilla. White chocolate. A touch of oak. Cookie dough. Delicious. Full content. The 54% are in my view the perfect drinking strength for this malt.
