Tobermory 20yr (Lady of the Glen)
It's been a little while since I tried any of the Lady of the Glen releases so it was great to be offered a sample of this Tobermory.
I've had some good and some bad Tobermory over the years and knowing the quality of Lady of the Glen bottlings I have high hopes for this dram.
Matured in ex bourbon, distilled in July 1995 and bottled in September 2015 this Tobermory is from cask #1237
So this is definitely a good Tobermory and Lady of the Glen have pulled it out the bag yet again, with another fabulous single cask with maximum flavour.
If you buy this you will not be disappointed, check out Lady of the Glen or good specialists for this dram.
Thanks again to Lady of the Glen for the official sample.
This is powerful stuff on the nose, vanilla and sweet tropical fruits, soft fruits, apricot and Wensleydale cheese, waxy with citrus fruits and citrus fruit peel, lovely sweet fruits, there's an underlying dirtiness like Springbank it's almost meaty or oily.
Sweet and tangy, powerful and very up front, waxy fruit peel and very thick mouthfeel, spicy and peppery with soft ripe fruits of plums and juicy apricots, vanilla cream and hints of coconut
