Tobermory 21yr Manzanilla Finish

Tobermory 21yr Manzanilla Finish This Tobermory 21yr Manzanilla Finish was a dram I was a little terrified of before i sampled it, as i'm not usually keen on Sherry finishes and manzanilla sherry i really didn't like.

This does have a big yeasty hit that comes from the Manzanilla sherry, although the orange oil and candied ginger on the nose and palate brought out enough notes to cover that for me and make it go more bready/doughy.

Tasty enough, although it still won't turn me on to manzanilla sherry

Available soon from whisky specialists.

Thanks to Tobermory for the official sample.

 

Initially quite doughy and dry, yeasty and like dried bread, slight hints of burnt toast, orange oil comes through then dark chocolate like a Terry's dark chocolate orange, candies ginger and more bread shop bakery notes toasting farmhouse loaves and poppy seed baguettes

That bready yeasty note comes through strongly again and lots of it, then an added sweet barley sugaryness, candied ginger and nutmeg, some buttered well fired toasted bread

Drying but sweet
