  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A seriously good dram, yet not spectacular.
    • Nose
      84 84
      The salty toffee side of sherry cask maured whisky. It's fairly nutty too. Think of salty caramel ice cream, almond, peanut, autumn leaf on a forest floor, and a hint of orange syrup.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Remains quite nutty and toffee-ish, with a bit more of dried fruit now: fig and date. Also, there is a more pronounced earthy influence, with dunnage floor added to the spectrum. It's quite pleasant strength-wise, and is more in balance than on the nose.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Stays for quite a while, and doesn't get dry nor overly spicy. This friendly finish is mainly on fruit (more towards prune now) and earthy notes (moss, leaf, dunnage).

  2. wbarchive_104650 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A really great whisky. I like it really well. A whisky where the whole package is right. Here, taste and finish keep that which the nose announces. Really great. No easy drinker.
    • Nose
      directly sulfur in the nose; Furniture polish; nice chocolaty, slight oak tones; dried, red grapes
    • Taste
      first supple freshness, then comes after a few seconds oak along with chocolate and raisins. It tingles really nice on the tongue; light pepper
    • Finish
      Sherry, oak. Sweet and very light smoke. Medium length, dark fruits and berries. Wood and sherry. Again a little bit of sulfur combined with an intense spiciness, very dry. There is a great sweetness on the palate.

  4. craide scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Quite delicious malt, easy to drink but not directly "easy drinking" and not particularly complex. Somewhere in the middle.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Gentle and light on the nose, mint-fresh, wood notes, light waxy, with a caramel-sweet, vanilla notes with fruity notes of red berries, slightly dirty after moist forest floor, wet earth.
      With a little time not easy maritime notes.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Powerful but not too strong start, neat oak flavor in combination with a light forest honey sweetness. dark chocolate and subtle sulfur. Even though only 46% is getting something good.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium-long finish, spicy with dark chocolate. Slight sulphurous notes remain

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Finally, the pleasant Tobermory, true, sherry standard, and it's not clear what the basis actually gave, but not bad. The beginning was more raisin and sweet, but the finale rather reminded of Oloroso, a good balance, good saturation and depth for a small fortress.
    • Nose
      Clear, raw, raisin-tree, light sulfur notes, dried fruits - dried apricots, raisins; Burnt rusks, furniture varnish, earth colors, Pu-er, wine aromas, port tones, dried apples.
    • Taste
      Dense, raisin-tree with a greater share of wood than in the aroma, prunes, dark beer, leavard, dried apricots, kumquats.
    • Finish
      Dry, sour bitter, dark beer, lacquer notes, tart oak mustard.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Toffee, bramble, cherry, banana and a whiff of sulphur.
    • Taste
      Salted toffee, cherry, blackberry and sulphur. Water adds plum and takes away most of the sulphur.
    • Finish
      Salted toffee and blueberry.

    Tip: No idea. Not even close. Scot? Yes, probably!

    Resolution: WID: 70634
    A tobermory of Dun Bheagan at the age of 19.

    I also like it very much. This whisky is very own and has an unusual texture in the mouth. Thumbs up!
    • Nose
      Fruity, rich berries, a bit of sulfur which does not bother me at all), oak, tart chocolate, light roasted aromas and cloves
    • Taste
      Woah! Very peppery and first slightly alcoholic. But then very spicy and "you chew your own wolf". Insanity texture: really fat and viscous. At the back, the complete range of sherry flavors.
      The raisins remain in my head
    • Finish
      medium length, some oak and very dry

  9. malthead-sven scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    He definitely has recognition value. The aroma is not infinitely complex, but has its own sherry heaviness, in the mouth and finish then dominated by the strong oak barrel. Great, creamy Sherrymalt and despite 46% not too lax.
    • Nose
      heavy, thick sherry, sticky, soft toffee, creamy sweets, marzipan, rich yellow grapes in the foreground, cooked fruits, juicy and heavy sweet, peach-passion fruit spread, raisin buns, fresh herbs are slowly mixing with it
    • Taste
      again sweet with very dense consistency, tingling and spicy, the oak is immediately there, intense woody, dark pastry, rye bread, spice-speculaas
    • Finish
      the sweetness continues, mouth-watering, the tingling spicy impression lingers for a while on the cheeks, otherwise not so strong on the finish, medium length
