Distilled at the Isle of Mull’s Tobermory distillery in 1994, this brilliant single malt was then matured in a second-fill sherry cask. It’s a robust and bold spirit that showcases the good interplay of this fine island malt with the flavours of second fill sherry casks.
Tobermory whisky is typically oily in character and its earthy, vegetal flavours are unmistakable. Liquorice, notes of maritime influence, and then a winey fruitiness from the sherry cask are the stars of the show. It’s not loud and tannic, like many sherried whiskies you may have tasted before, but rather, the cask influence enhances the malt with notes of sultana raisins, a lively hint of peachy sourness, and candied orange peel.
It’s a refined and complex expression of just 507 bottles, but not one for the faint-hearted, simply because Tobermory will always be a strong-hearted malt.
