  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    this is definitely a different kind of whisky; I would be lying if I say I have fallen in love with this, but I admire how different this is to many recent tastings - it dares to be different. With some water the nose loses the mouldiness and becomes more floor polish and lemon cleaning fluid; the mouth opens up and is a lot tamer, the bitterness is still there but is that bit more appreciative; the finish lessens, especially in the peppery heat, still quite a bit of hanging around bitter fur in the mouth to enjoy/ensure, reminding me of the bitterness of the anaesthetic applied at the dentists; one for dental workers everywhere!
    • Nose

      very pungent, mouldy room, damp barns
    • Taste

      the initial taste is far more normal than the nose would suggest but the oddness emerges again; the mouth gets some furring; it manages to been quite sweet and have a bitter earthy quality at the same time
    • Finish

      long; a huge amount of heat; bitterness follows and the interior of the mouth takes ages to rid itself of the notes

    • Nose
      Typical tobermory. Start sweet, but also a bit sweaty. Then follows a pronounced fruity, as well as buttery flavor development. Anise, still unbaked Applecrumble, salt and fine Zitrsuzesten. Will become more mature and heavier, almost syrupy over time. In addition, also slightly metallic and rubbery. With water: sweeter. Typical balancing act of syrupy flavors, cooked apples and "farmy" notes. In addition, salt and metallic accents.
    • Taste
      At first it emphasizes salty, citrus zests, mashed potatoes, harsh oak, rainy and already musty hay, a hint of sulfur, metallic accents and perhaps also subtle peaty reflexes. Gradually becomes earthier and "farmiger" .With water: saltier, light spiciness, dug earth, nuts and apple juice.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet for white chocolate. In addition, pine nuts and salt.
