Whisky Reviews for Tobermory 1995 IM

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.92 points

  1. 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.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    • 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.

  3. Helgo scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blindtasting TWS Christmas Puppies 2016
    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

  4. 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

  10. Sapiano scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tobermory Dun Bheagan 19J 1995/2015 WID: 70634

    Nose: Mint spills, wood comes after, Bourbon like, sweetness, caramel, chocolate. In the background berries.

    Taste: Full mouthfeel. Sweet. Chocolate, sulfur. Oak comes. Then he bizzles on the tongue. For 46% he is quite powerful.

    Finish: Very warm with spices and chocolate. Some sulfur remains in the mouth. The finish is very long.

    Conclusion: I have since found that I like these sulfuric notes and I think they are good to the Tobermory. It is a pity that the bottling is already priced in the 3-digit range. As a smoky I would not call him, even if it is marked as such in TWS.
