Tobermory 17 Year Old (Whisky Broker)
I'm still playing catch up with hiskies i've bought or been given samples of over the last year and this is one of those as I bought a bottle of this earlier in the year, drank during the summer and only just getting round to posting this review today.
I've not had a huge amount from the Tobermory distillery, but i have enjoyed the vast majority of the ones that i have.
Whisky Broker bottles his own single cask drams at fantastic prices and this 17 Year Old is no different as it is available for around £34 a bottle on his site here.
After trying this dram i really should be looking to try more of the range from Tobermory, and it's certainly on my list of things to do.
an inital note of summer fruit berries with thick creamy butter notes and touch of malt, theres ever so slight hint of coal chimney smoke and some salty pistachio nuts with a touch of duey grass. When left for 5/10 mins in the glass there's a "sneezy" peppery note that comes through also
initially a touch of smoke but then there's a huge fruityness that comes through before crushed black pepper and cinnamon
Massive finish, it grows and grows.
