Tobermory 15 Year Old Reviews

An unusual whisky worth trying

Quite a unique whisky which has a sulphuric bite in the nose, which alarmed me, but which does not translate over to the palate or finish in anyway. The nose is nice, complex, quite a lot going on and worth spending a minute or two on. The palate is really good but I have found, after having the bottle opened for a few weeks, that it is even better now. There was a grassy, earthiness that was over powering it - that has now mellowed and there is a wonderful cacaphony of flavor. The finish is medium but really runs with the dry, nutty flavor present. It's good, though a little pricey if you can still find it. Worth finding a bottle.

My Favorite Scotch

This is an absolutely lovely whisky. Slightly sweet and just a hint of smokiness. I have bought two bottles over the years. I had no problems with it going bad on the shelf even after several years. My guess is people are storing it someplace that gets hot. Now, if I could just find more in the States. *sigh*

Brilliant A++++++++

This is one of the best scotches EVER! I desperately would like another. Taste is absolutely fulfilling, from sweet to tang & back again. Is there anyone out there with an unmolested bottle? 😄😄😄👍👍👍

Very Good, Complex, Island Character

I like this whisky a lot. It has a satisfying complexity of flavors, especially including the somewhat disturbing mineral/oceanic ineffables I so esteem in whiskies from the Western Isles. However, I totally get why scotch lovers of various stripes would not.

It starts out like a "sherry bomb" as one commenter described it below, but it spent time aging in the western isles, and it has some of that wild west character lurking just below the surface. If you're firmly in one camp or the other, this scotch could totally clash with your sensibilities.

In riposte to those who say is has too many flavors crammed in there, I'm reminded of the criticism of Mozart, that he used too many notes.

Same experience

I had the same experience as the guy below. My bottle went flat and awful after about 4 months open. And only about 5 drams in. I thoought it was just my taste, but the review below describes it very accurately. This has never happened to any of my whiskies before, even after one year open. Is there any explanation?

What went wrong??

I quite liked the first two drams from the bottle. The left it for about two months, and now it's just a horrible whisky. Yes it's oily, but in the wrong way. Yes it has some coffee, but in the wrong way. It has wood, but in the wrong way. It has leather, also in the wrong way... It just really fell flat. Not only boring, but almost undrinkable. I am very very disappointed. It is almost like wine that oxidised and is now ready for the drain!! What went wrong??

Loved this.

Loved this. A great fruity , spicy, sherried whisky.
I know this isn't as important but the presentation was great too .

What a surprise

I was lucky enough to discover a bottle in my local whisky shop, and what a great surprise. I love the salty sweet tobacco notes and almost leathery taste when you spend enough time with this one. I only hope i can find more.

Lovely and dry

Don't expect a sweet sherry bomb. Rather a flavourful dry sherry finish that lingers long after the last sip. truly great.

HHHmmm HHHmmmm

Wow, since Distell took over Burn Stewart all their whiskies have increased in quality inleaps and bounds. I am so glad it's the same with Tobermory. The 10 is one of my favorites. The 15 is just sublime. If you can get your hands on one, don't think twice. The sherry finish on this one takes it into new dimensions of saltiness and creamy mocha and chocolate. hhhhmmmm!!
