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.
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?
Don’t take my word for it:
