Whisky Reviews for Tobermory 1995 whic

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.75 points

  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is a delicate, rich and beautifully poised dram. Despite that shy opening, everything is well balanced. Intense and complex on the palate. A full-bodied malt which develops over time in the glass. Quite close to my favoured style of Bourbon cask matured whisky. This Tobermory works pretty well for me - either neat or diluted.

    I thank Arne Wesche from Whic.de for the sample!

    • Nose
      Shy at first. With time, sweet and slightly floral notes develop on the nose with vanilla, butterscotch and a pleasant fruitiness of apricots and peaches. Hints of pepper nicely linger with oak, hey and grassy notes in the back. The alcohol is always present but by no means pungent.
    • Taste
      Rich and voluminous on the palate! Delicate vanilla and sweet barley sugar mixed with cereals and fragrant yellow fruits - apricots and peaches. This is accompanied by a fairly warming spiciness of oak and nutmeg, with a hint of earthy notes in the back. Lovely mouthfilling!
    • Finish
      The finish shows medium length with nicely warming flavours of spiced oak. Sweet and tender fruity with vanilla, apricot jam and a dry touch of chocolate and hints of salt on the tail.

      WITH WATER: Water tames a bit of the sweetness and fruitiness on the nose bringing more spiced oak and hints of tobacco leaves to the fore. Creamy, sweet and tender fruity on the palate with a significantly tamed warming spiciness. The finish is a bit shorter but shows lovely sweet, malty and fruity flavours with a touch of earthy notes, tobacco leaves and spiced oak on the tail.
