Just curious if anyone has had a chance to try the new Tobermory 15 yr Scotch?

Enzo, I have not had it, but I just spent some time researching it after reading your post. It sounds like it has the perfect combination of everything, not too strong not too light but the only problem is since it is a limited production it is going to be very hard to find. If anyone else out there has any recommendations that would be great. I wasn't sure what to recommend.

I just picked up a bottle. Luckily, I found it less than a mile from my house! I've not had a chance to try it yet... I will report back when I do.

So I finally got around to opening the Tobermory 15 this weekend.

This stuff is positively delightful.

I'd write up a review with tasting notes... but I could hardly add anything. Tobermory's site has just about the most accurate review I could come close to:


"NOSE:
A lovely sherried nose with notes of fig, orange marmalade, hints of leather and a touch of smoke

PALATE:
Medium to full bodied. Rich sherry fruit cake, milk chocolate, creamy toffee, light oak, a hint of white pepper creating a lovely spicy tang

FINISH:
Softly spicy, tingling with a nutty note, a hint of salt, lingering then gently fades"


This is a fantastic Scotch! :)
