Tobermory / The Whisky Barrel

Tobermory 1994 Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel) Review

Springbank 1996 Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel) I've had a bit of a Rollercoaster ride when it comes to whisky from Tobermory, including the Ledaig peated versions, with some i loved and some i hated, so i was quite aprehensive about this dram.

I've had some good and some really not to my palate Tobermory drams and this is right in the middle for me, there's fruit and sweetness but the lactic notes come across a little too strongly for my palate, although I could certainly drink it without worrying it would not be my first choice

Thanks to The Whisky Barrel for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


There's a little bit of a lactic buttery creamy note at first followed by vanilla essence and little sherried fruit notes with dried apricots and raisins, gentle maple honey, sweet sugar coated apples and hints of creme caramel


Very light, maple honey, light golden syrup, and creme caramel, tree sap, saw dust and stewed apples


Grows on the finish, long lasting oak spice and tree sap
