We've bottled just 274 bottles of this superb Tobermory at 17 years of age from a single refill hogshead. This peppery, spicy whisky was distilled on the 26th April 1995 before bottling on the 26th November 2012.
Nose: Pepper and cranberry open the nose followed by milk chocolate and the fresh aroma of a conifer forest.
Palate: Peppery and malty with a coastal character and an oily mouth-feel. Slowly but surely notes of mulled wine fill the mouth and announce the finish.
Finish: Big spicy notes of course ground pepper, cumin and nutmeg with sweet popping candy on the tail.
Overall: A rich single malt from the Isle of Mull with warm spicy notes and a great mouth-coating quality.

Love this Tobermory! It a rich, meaty dram with bags of flavour. From my brief notes from Birmingham and recollection it shares similarities to the standard 10 Year Old, but everything has been increased, like it has been put through and amplifier and played at full blast.The colour of this 17 year old is very pale, like a white wine. Being naturally coloured, only taking the colour from maturing in the refill hogshead during the seventeen year maturation.The nose is rich and meaty, a definite peppery note, almost chilli like, yet with a balsamic sweetness with soy sauce and pine cones, conifer forest as the Master of Malt notes say. I wasn't able to find the chocolate on this dram however, but I love the nose of this one. The empty glass the following morning is also appealing; malty with some chocolate notes which I found at last.This has a big powerful entry, it's peppery, malty, with a rich sweetness again reminding me of a balsamic/soy sauce dressing and there's a light briny maritime edge to it too. The spicy peppery notes remained to the end with some sweet toffee notes at the end. Dave Worthington Whisky Discovery
