Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite light and fresh. There are notes of barley sugars and toasted cereals, hints of winter spice and a soft oak with notes of salty melted butter and ground ginger. The palate is quite sweet and light. There are notes of acacia honey and a soft oak, the smoke and peppers thereof rise gently with a touch of dried fruit and peel with a cinnamon note. The finish is long and herbal with a touch of pepper.

    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.

    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.

    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.)

    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.

    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

    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.

    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:)
