  • Bottler:

    Tobermory

    53.8%

  • Age:

  • Intro:

    This is a cask strength distillery release from Tobermory that is finished in Manzanilla casks.

  • Nose:

    Sweet honey, caramel. Pralines, honey roasted nuts. Really sweet nose with vanilla bean and a whole lot of raisin bread. No smoke, but there is some minerality and light salinity.

  • Taste:

    Honey roasted peanuts, fresh baked bread. Honey, salt and brine, light earthiness and minerality. Faint heat. Lemon, peach, pear. Not syrupy but the wine is there - although faint.

  • Finish:

    Long, but more earthy and smoke forward. Some ash here, burning wood, light earthiness. Honey, lemon, peach and a final hit of smoldering, earthy peat. Not a peat bomb by any stretch but compared to the nose and the palate, there is far more ash and stone and much less sweetness.

  • Overall:

    I didn't really know what to think of this. I found the transition to be pretty hash and disjointed, but also enjoyed that we started sweet and ended smoky. Not the top of the charts, but well above average.

  • Score:

    6
