  1. Koning scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    It's a very enjoyable and complex whisky with several dimensions: is has a raw industrial/dirty side with maritime influences, but it's also sweet at times and fruity with fresh vegetables. Will miss this bottle, it's empty now..
    • Nose
      88 88
      Intruiging nose with two sides. It's raw and industrial, with ozone (how streets smell after a summer rain shower), ink, leather and a some peat smoke. On the other hand it's fruity and fresh, with apricot, passion fruit, rhubarb, grapefuit, vanilla, and biscuits or croissants.
    • Taste

      Thick and multi-layered. It still has that industrial side of the nose, oily with light peat and leather. It's also maritime now with mineral and salty notes with some seaweed. Fruits and vegetables also emerge like fennel, strawberry, rhubarb, sweet citrus fruits and some vanilla flavoured biscuits too.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Rather long and oily with medium dry and ashy peat and and a martime saltiness. Citrus fruits, liquorice root, vanilla, nutmeg, white pepper and a vegetal side.

    I rate this whisky very highly. Pleasantly surprised by the peated notes, suspect the ledaig side of the distillery has influenced this. Bourbon flavour strong on the nose and it is evident that it is a class act with smooth, rich aromas coming through-coffee, leather, apple. On tasting, it is sharp but not undrinkable, small dash of water benefits. I Like the smokiness, saltiness and oily feel of the whisky. Typical, maritime, island whisky, which for 70£ at auction has been a great buy that I’d happily pay 100£+ for.

    Aroma: spring, meadow full of flowers, fruit orchard (apples, pears, peaches), vanilla, passion fruit, delicate earthiness and sea in the background
    Taste: spicy spices (pepper, paprika), then flowers, the same fruit as in the smell, more sea and peat
    Finish: grapefruit skins, sea character
    Grade: 5

  5. wncvirus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: notes of bourbon, malt, honeycomb, green apple
    Taste: From the first sip you can feel the aftertaste of apples with an admixture of dry notes. Hidden grass notes appear in the background, as well as floral notes. Slightly peppery taste in subsequent attempts.
    Rating: 87 | 100 Fairly long finish with apple and grass flavor. Whisky is fine in my opinion.

  6. Official tasting note

    Nose: Salty; waxed leather and salted pork. A little smoke and drying.

    Palate: The saltiness continues and a slight smokiness emerges with undertones of custard creams and a short waxy note.

    Finish: Ash, dry, cooked fruits, peppery, salted popcorn and digestive biscuit notes.

    good powerful whisky, because in the winter it’s good 87, in the summer it’s 85 strong, but in general it’s delicious solid whisky!

  13. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Farmy, grassy, dirty mud stable. But behind there is quite some fruitiness.

    Taste:
    Sweet and sour, little peppery, the sweetness takes over after a while and stays forever

    Body:
    Silky

    Finish:
    Medium-long length. There is quite a strange peatiness here. Which must have come from a cask which contained Ledaig.

    Price:
    Around €100,- is very fair priced

    Presentation:
    Sober, decent, all the info you need is on the bottle

    This is a smooth yet typical Tobermory. Classic Tobermory! All the flavours are here greatly balanced.
