Tobermory 42 Year old Review

Tobermory 42 Year old Occasionally there's a dram that you get offered as a whisky blogger that just utterly blows your mind and this was one of those occasions.

A 42 Year Old dram from Tobermory distillery, which retails at over £2000, i certainly wasn't for turning that down. The sample arrived with some chocolate covered coffee beans which were both amazing and weird in equal quantities but gave an indication of the official notes of this bottling.

It's a huge powerful beast of a dram, with big sherried notes and almost a hint of smoke creeping in to the nose, this is a dram i want to drink again and again, and one where you can totally understand the cost, even if it's one i wish i could afford.

If it's in your budget get over to Master of Malt and get one, now, it's a great dram.

Thanks to Tobermory for the generous official sample.
