Tobermory 10 Bottling Note

A gentle, affable 10 year old single malt from the Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull. Now at the higher strength of 46.3%...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Barley sugars and toasted cereal, supported by hints of winter spice and soft oak. Salty melted butter and ground ginger develop.

Palate: Quite sweet and light. There are elements of acacia honey and continuing oak from the nose. Smoke and black pepper notes rise gently with a touch of dried fruit and peels. A flash of cinnamon later on.

Finish: Long and herbal with a touch of pepper.

Tobermory 10

A wonderful unpeated dram.

28th June 2018

Light fresh and a nice change!

I am only just realizing how unique this Whisky is and I'm nearly at the bottom. It is in one word fresh, and light and a nice change from the normal. It is an unpeated Ledaig 10 as Macallan gold is the unpeated Springbank 15, Slainthe!

Beautiful, like slim, pale nordic maiden.

I have been marinading myself in sherry monsters for the past year and a half. Whether because all the best casks have been used up or because my taste buds are saturated I can't say but they seem to be becoming a bit samey (too many "no age statement" i.e. young whiskies on the market now).

Long story short, I decided to broaden out a bit more (not the waistline though) and this was taking up space on the shelf with about a dram and a half in the bottom.

Wow! Light, fruity, airy, sweet, ginger.......I am smitten all over again. Now I've bought another bottle so I still don't have space. damn. Guess I'll have to drink it then.

Takes me back

I first tried this amazing single malt (along with its peaty sister Ledaig) on the ferry trip from Craignure on the Isle of Mull to Oban and I knew I would need a bottle when I got back home. Wasn't easy to find but now that I have it very happy I do. This is an incredibly unique single malt only thing I can think of that tastes like this is Loch Lomond original in that it has the same buttery note but this is more herbal and coastal with a similar hint of peat as well. Incredibly complex for 10 years this really take me back to Mull an incredibly remote and beautiful place only wish I could have visited this distillery . Cheers! The Sugarbear

Full on flavor.

Tasty, smokey, spicy, haggis in a glass. Strong drink. Great value for money. If you do not like booze, best give it a miss.

31st May 2017


Love this, just slightly different from other islays but up there and if you hunt around a bottle can be found for £30 which is an absolute steal.
Would recommend to anyone

One of my favourites from a small lovely distillery

Good but a bit too spicy for my preference

Not a bad dram, however I feel that if you are looking for a smokier but yet fruity whiskey I would go for a Cardhu 12 which is about the same price and has more flavour. I find Tobermory a bit too spicy and oaky which is not my preference, however some people may find it enjoyable.

31st August 2016

Fruity and light!

Fruity, light, floral, with light highland under tones of complexity. Not much sweetness but a little. A bit of white pepper on the tip of the tongue. Good stuff!

26th May 2016

So so.

Presentation is nice. Taste isn't bad but the after taste wasn't so pleasant.

23rd March 2016

Good Scotch for the money

I live in Arizona and picked up a bottle of Tobermory recently and have been pleasantly surprised. Had no idea what to expect but it's a very tasty scotch at a good price.

25th October 2015

Buona prova

Buon profumo, molto gradevole al palato e persistente nel suo gusto

Let's Be Honest...

Shenanigans? I don't see that anyone has left a bad review for Tobermory 10 on this thread, athough everyone is entitled to their opinion both good and bad. I'm not going to rave about how this is the best whisky on earth, but I will give it an honest, objective review. It took a few minutes, but this dram eventually opened nicely from a neat pour. At first there was the salted butter, red apple skins, and other sweet notes on the nose. But after a few minutes, the sugary sweetness opened into a delightful hint of birthday cake. Very cool! The palate is soft, but a strong peppered finish quickly follows leaving a slightly grassy aftertaste. Hints of oak and smoke are there, but hide quietly in the background. Overall sweet, fresh and green, but dry and slightly harsh In the end.

Love lt

Has Become My Favourite Scotch. It Has A Great Taste In And Down The Throat. I Am Hooked Others Just Don't Compare.

12th December 2014

Mr J Clark

My grandson drives in the Mull Rally and brings me a bottle of Tobermory each time. Last time it was your 15. This time it is a 10, not as good, but also, the 70cc bottle of 10 seems smaller than the 15. How come?

19th October 2014

Pleasant, subtle surprise

Nice touch of peat with a good character. Pleasant aftertaste. I still prefer Laphroaig or Bowmore, but I would say that this drink certainly holds its own. Slainte.

10th October 2014

Wm Barnes

A superlative malt but vatted surely. I rather thought it was barrelled in Islay and bottled in Glasgow.

11th May 2014

Why pay more?

I've been buying Laphroaig 18yo and Ardbeg Uigeadail recently but this, much cheaper, dram is just as enjoyable. Very pleasant and full of character. (Though I still, just, prefer Talisker Distiller's Edition.)

6th May 2014

Toner pry in Tombstone

Introduced to Tobermory in Tombstone, AZ and found it to be as smooth as the air there is dry with a nice finish. A very good finish. I'm sold.

2nd May 2014

isle of mull

someone said it lacked the charachter of the islay malts and being it is the only distillary on the isle of mull id disagree and say it has its own fantastic charachter. brilliant single malt

15th April 2014

great whiskey

always loved this whiskey! got to be my number one for winter. great flavour with a few drops of water added. really warms you up. seen alot of people saying it was sweet, i didnt get that myself. I'm by no means an expert but i am scottish and have had my share of whiskeys. this is great value for money!

I call shenanigans on all the bad reviews for both Deanston and Tobermory 10. I am a restauranteur/bar owner and have stocked both over the course of many years after doing multiple blind tastings. I am a fan of well balanced, subtle, complex, slightly sweet, non-bitter and easy drinking smooth liquors. I am not a fan of harsh, alcohol tasting/burn, overly strong flavors, heavily intense flavors. I can understand why those who prefer a stronger, bolder profile might not enjoy Tobermory or Deanston as much a I do, but in no way can I understand some of the "worst I've ever had" type criticisms from anyone unless they are drinking from a damaged, abused or counterfeit bottle. Or, the bad reviews might be from those with other motives. I urge all to try for themselves, taste blind if possible among a selection of good offerings, and make up one's own mind. Deanston 12 and Tobermory 10 are among my favorite scotch whiskys at any price and are truly great values with price considered. Ledaig also gets a nod from me as well.

17th December 2013


Definately not the smoothest 10 yr. out there. Strong start, light peat finish, little boozey for my taste.

5th October 2013

Good drop

Has a good taste and for price point is good value, lighter than some of the island malts and a good introduction.

Good way to start your island journey. Overall a decent drop and more complex than most at this price point, move to the 15 for better flavour and depth but also deeper pockets needed,

13th July 2013

A different Islander

Never had the old one so cannot compare it. Not my first Island foray, but definitely different.

Flavours were not over-complex, good for a new Island sampler like me. Quite floral on the nose and almost grass-like. Taste is short but peppery like Talisker though with more smoke like Jura/Islay malts - a quite unique blend.

Finish is pleasant and sea-salty, almost akin to Oban. All in all a very nice and surprisingly complex malt at this price.

24th April 2013

Good quality for your money

Very enjoyable and reasonably prized whisky. Definitely a recommended one.

16th February 2013

Opened the bottle last night

So the night started well... Laddie 16, onto Port Charlotte 10 then Octomore 2.1... Absolutely fantastic. A couple of hours later we had a hankering for something else too. So with clean palates we opened the Tobermory and we were really impressed. It doesn't have the punch or full character of the Islay malts, but very nice. Very clean and fresh. Will be getting through the bottle before long!

20th December 2012


Such a smooth dram, just got it for my 21st and I couldn't be happier. The little hint of smoke is gorgeous!

8th May 2012

Perfectly drinkable (correction)

Apologies, my review above was of the old 40% 10yo bottling!

19th January 2012

Perfectly drinkable

This whisky gets a bit of a bad press in the whisky community, but it drinks well, albeit with a weak finish. But, it's not overly sweet and has a light smoky and saline quality I like. More interesting that Speysides at the same pricepoint, for sure.

19th January 2012

Delicious Tasting whisky

A hugely drinkable dram. Delicious flavour, a slight touch of smoke, with a marvellous, well balanced taste. A wonderful, easy drink. Perfect for sipping in the evening or charging the hip-flask.

23rd December 2011


The 10year old 40% is much smoother.

24th November 2011


To whisky, what a Burgundy is to a Bordeaux, or any Romantic to Beethoven. Charming, rather than grandiose. I'd give it to my mother in hopes she'd serve it back to me.

28th October 2010

a good entry level islands malt

Not bad whisky, gently peated and smokier. Not very complex, is a good entry level whisky for who wants taste the great peated Islay and Islands whisky.

27th September 2010

Breakfast whisky

A very drinkable dram, could have been a breakfast tipple for sure!
A bit underestimated fresh fellow:)
