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:
A lovely sherried nose with notes of fig, orange marmalade, hints of leather and a touch of smoke
Medium to full bodied. Rich sherry fruit cake, milk chocolate, creamy toffee, light oak, a hint of white pepper creating a lovely spicy tang
Softly spicy, tingling with a nutty note, a hint of salt, lingering then gently fades"
This is a fantastic Scotch!
Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whiskey is barely enough.
