  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    -Blind tasting-
    Around 50%, 18 years old, ex-bourbon with sherry cask participation. Distillery? ...
    A tobermory! Who would have thought that. It is astonishing that after 22 years in Sherry Butt there is not so much left of it that it cannot be recognized as such without a doubt. Nevertheless (or because of that?) A very nice island malt from Tobermory. wlk 20-09
    • Nose
      88 88
      Moist forest floor, like after a heavy rain shower. Mold, damp wood, mushrooms. Provides a lot of flavor at the beginning, but also has hints of light fruits at the beginning, which become more concrete after a while and appear as apricots and oranges. Spicy wood, malt, marzipan, chocolate flakes. The nose has turned almost completely, almost completely away from the musty beginnings, towards a fruity-fresh and somewhat floating impression.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Almost mild start with strong notes of chocolate, coffee beans, almonds, marzipan. In addition, dried apricots and roasted orange slices as fruit components. Comes quite dry on the tongue, provides a lot of wood and with pepper, paprika powder, savory and nutmeg a lot of flavor. Vanilla and honey, sugar beet syrup, malt.
    • Finish
      87 87
      In the medium-long and very dry finish, it adds a little more flavor. Fading fruits, clear notes of chocolate.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice Tobermory, the sherry barrel is rather subtle, brings a lot of spice and tart oak.
    • Nose
      On the nose I find ripe, light fruits, but also tart berries, star fruit and honeydew melon, a little white wine, a little parmesan, a nice oak spice. With water: it gets a little sweeter on the nose, but otherwise not very different.
    • Taste
      The start is pretty crisp, I can't leave it in my mouth that long. But the fruit, the sour, the cheese, everything is there. With water: Less attack in the mouth, still tart notes, pepper, wood, very spicy impressions, less fruit, rather hearty.
    • Finish
      The finish is incredibly chocolatey (milk chocolate), surprise. With water: The finish remains chocolaty, slightly tart, astringent and, above all, still very spicy, but a bit short.

    My predecessors wrote it very nice notes.
    It doesn't really suit my personal taste.
    Too much pepper, acid and ginger after all
    22 years and that in a sherry barrel.
    After the blind tasting, I would have guessed a barrel of white wine.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Salty caramel, butter, apple, peach and minerals. With water there's pineapple.
    • Taste
      Salty caramel, apple, peach and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Still fudgy, but also more dry and woody.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Quite mineral, white wine, with a hint of sherry (a bit spicy with notes of cooked cake), heather and honey, rather iodized. Blindly, you might think of an Old Pulteney or a Clynelish. More spicy and woody with aeration.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Mouth quite oily, oily, a lot of flowers honey, wax. Made very Highlands. Some notes of cooked cake and pepper. Gourmet set.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long enough finish, on honey, wax, pepper. Finale more vegetal, accompanied by an iodized freshness.
