Whisky Review – Tobermory 10 Year Old (46.3%)

I’m taking part in (yet another) blind tasting competition. This time it’s an event organized for the local wine & alcohol forum. The first entry was Tomatin 14 which I reviewed in the past and failed to recognized it. The 2nd one was Tobermory 10 (the newer version with the higher ABV). I failed to recognized it but did get some points for guessing the age correctly 🙂

Tobermory 10 Year Old (46.3%, £29.45)

tobermory 10 new 46.3Nose: Heavy notes of malt, ‘dirty’ hay, honey and vanilla. This one is surely young as there are whiffs of new make notes and lots of malt. Given some time there’s a bit of milk chocolate, , sour berries with sugary sweetness which then develop and almost overtake the malt/honey/hay combo with strong strawberries note.

Palate: Malt, honey, lots of spices with big pepper hit, oak wood but not bitter, quite gentle and mellow.

Finish: Medium finish with spiciness, malt and a bit of oak.

Thoughts:  It’s better then the old version I tasted when I barely started my whisky journey. Not really my cup of tea but it’s a nice  and solid whisky.
