  1. [2stoned] aKu scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The nose is very beautiful, but then leaves in the mouth a little bit after. But overall a nice, intense whisky. The individual flavors harmonize very well without it being ironed or even boring.

    Comparative Casting with Tobermory 1995/2015 20y - BiM - https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/73661 : Both are delicious. The RBTW is a bit sweeter in the nose and the BiM looks a bit older and hides a few of its flavors. Both are drier in the mouth than you would expect from the nose. The finish is longer at the RBTW, but the BiM is a bit more delicious here. Compared with the ratings here (before my rating: RBTW 89.75 in 4 votes, BiM 88.50 in 4 votes), the BiM has literally nose over me.
    • Nose
      Already when pouring a strong, fruity sweetness rises and in the glass then an intense and bright fruit cocktail consisting of sweet yellow apples and pears, white grapes, juicy peach, passion fruit and a tart hint of pineapple. Added to this is a little vanilla cream, a few drops of honey and a little fresh wood. The 54.7% Alk are very unremarkable. With a little time then a slightly dusty feeling is added and the fruits are going overripe / slightly gummy, but not unpleasant. The light wood note is a bit stronger and now reminds a little of an oak cabinet wall. Towards the end of the dram, some cotton candy appears.
    • Taste
      Not as sweet as the nose would suggest, rather dry. The fruit mix is ​​back, but already very overripe and a slight sense of dry white wine. Wood is there and now comes on a spice, consisting of some black pepper, a touch of bitter almonds and hazelnuts. Again, the Alk is very well involved.
    • Finish
      Actually the same impressions as in the taste. The light woody note and the feeling of semi-dry white wine or more sparkling wine stays behind on the tongue for a long time.

    Nice fruity Tobermory with a huge onset - and that, although the alcohol is beautifully integrated. With water, the whisky is then really tasty: even more fruit and a pleasant sweetness. Go in the direction Hubba Bubba bubble gum. Definitely recommended!

    [April, 2017]  Never had a Rest & be Thankful dram before as I find these bottlings completely overprized.  So I am grateful to be able to try this sample.

    The nose is quite interesting, lots of different aromas from malty sweetness to spring floral (blooming flowers).  No peat at all, but some hints of maritime notes.  The mouthfeel is creamy and pleasant.  The body is not as complex as the nose but still very nice.  But a little bitter/adstringent after a while.  The finish is of medium length but adds no new impressions. With some water the nose does not change a lot and the body gets sweeter and smoother.  I like it that way better, even the finish seems to be a little longer...

    A nice dram to sip on an evening like today, but as a drinker I would not pay for it a premium over comparable releases...

  7. Torfding scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Beeswax candles, heavy sweetness, many fruits (floury apples, pineapple), resin and freshly beaten wood, vanilla, wholewheat cereal bars, some hay and herbs, and a touch of sea air
    • Taste
      tingling in the mouth, still sweet and a little syrup, but drier than in the nose, malty, spicy, nutty, some white wine and overgrown coastal strip, some oak and somehow "green", comes later saltier;
      Pastries are more prominent with water
    • Finish
      medium to long; spicy, oak, dull lemon, later also a little saltier

  8. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very confused, very extreme tips, anyway somehow cool. Power, fruits, salt, who likes this is just right.
    • Nose
      After some of the alcohol and the detergent have disappeared, beautiful fruit notes emerge, peaches, pineapple, apple with peel, pear, some heather, lime, a little malt
    • Taste
      Ui, strong onset of a tropical-salty fruit bomb, pineapple, kiwi, currants, apples, a few flowers in between and above all a brine float, later followed by a little green oak, hint of pagan fire
    • Finish
      Long, salty-sweet, pineapple and some bitter oak remain with salt

  9. p4blo scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    It appears to be good, but there is something I don't really like about this one. It's too chaotic, with random flavours and no real depth, the way I see it.
    • Nose
      Notes of varnish, plastic, glue and other chemicals, fortunately they fade away. Underneath there are apples, pears, vanilla, lemons and peaches.
    • Taste
      Kiwi, gooseberry, notes of flowers. Very sweet and inviting, but not too rich. The alcohol is detectable with a slight burning on the tongue, the spices add up to this impression.
    • Finish
      Quite long, but rather hot, spicy with tannic bitterness counteracting the sweetness of sugar and fruits.
