What they say

TOBERMORY 1994 – 24 Years Old, Sherry Butt, 55.3% ABV part of the Spring 2019 release.

What I say

Released as part of their The Single Cask range spring 2019 by Claxton’s Spirits. This whisky was distilled at Tobermory distillery in 1994 and matured for a full 24 years before bottling at cask strength of 55.3% producing 346 bottles.

Thanks to Claxton’s Spirits for the official sample.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Autumnal russet gold (13/20), slow, medium-sized tears.
  • Nose: Sweet, candy floss, strawberries and cream, tanned leather, strawberries dipped in white chocolate, slightly musty/fermented, metallic and vegetal – classic Tobermory, toffee, coffee and chocolate.
  • Taste: Brown sugars, softened fruits, fig, red cherry, coffee, chocolate, tannic oak wood, a little bitter, chicory, camp coffee, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg, malty barley and some dried ‘sherry’ fruits round this out.
  • Finish: Medium-long, spiced, bitter, citrus and sugar.

Overall

A very drinkable refill? sherry butt matured Tobermory. The nose and the palate show hints of that metallic/radiator nature of Tobermory’s spirit and some vaporosity – followed by brown/woody sugars, ripe/dried fruits and lots of chocolate and coffee – what’s not to like?

Score 89/100

Don’t take my word for it:
