Tobermory / Douglas Laing

Tobermory 6yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) Review

Tobermory 6yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) I've had this bottle of 6 year old Tobermory, distilled in 2006, from Douglas Laing for quite some time and been sipping on it for some time without realising I hadn't previously reviewed it so was time I got round to it.

I've had an up down relationship with Tobermory over the years and I was wary when I first tried this but it really is cracking.

The nose is fruity and sweet the palate is a lot there too and then a touch of heat and spice comes through, it's youthful heat but without the popcorn note that sometimes comes with younger drams but not here at all it's lovely stuff that really works very well.

Tasty stuff and one worth hunting out.

I know Master of Malt have it in 3cl Sample size and it may still be available from other specialists.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Rich sweet dried fruits come first with raisins, sultanas and dried apricots, there's a touch of dried bananas in here then biscuits and some fresh light syrup and some oak leaf sauce.

Palate

Deep dark dried fruits with raisins, sultanas and apricots and even some gentle plums and nectarines with syrup and sugary sweetness, then a tang of spice and alcohol heat comes in together.

Finish

Long fruity, hot and spicy
