What they say
The Isle of Mull is an idyllic place for whisky distillation and the Tobermory 12 Year Old echoes the rich character of our Hebridean home. Using non-peated barley and water from the distillery’s private source, the whisky delivers sweet and spicy notes on the palette and perfectly complements Tobermory’s passion for art in nature.
What I say
To celebrate the reopening of Tobermory distillery, this 12 year old expression matured in American oak casks was released.
Thanks to Tobermory for the official sample.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Full amber gold (10/20), slow medium-fine tears and fine legs.
- Nose: Fruity, apple, peach, red berries, lemon sharpness, citrus zest, hint of vanilla, brown sugar, honey, yeasty/doughy and toffee
- Taste: Zesty, toffee apples, a hint of copper metallic, tart raspberry coulis sweetened with honey, red apples, thickens on the palate, light white pepper spice and dark chocolate.
- Finish: Long, burnt toffee, spiced dark chocolate with mint.
Full of dark sugars, ripe fruits and a hint of spiced pepper, much sharper than the stalwart 10 year old expression but with those flashes of unmistakabley Tobermory qualities.
Don’t take my word for it:
