Tobermory 1999 19 Year Old Marsala Finish Review

25th June 2018
Review of the Tobermory 1999 19 Year Old Marsala Finish Distell Limited Release 2019 Malt Whisky Collection.

Tobermory 1999 19 Year Old Marsala FinishThe only Tobermory expression in Distell's Limited Release Malt Whisky Collection 2019, this Tobermory 1999 19 Year Old Marsala Finish was initially filled into whisky refill hogsheads in December 1999 followed by just over 2 years finishing in Marsala casks.

Bottled at a cask strength of 55.7% ABV, naturally coloured and non-chillfiltered, it is a limited release of 211 bottles, with a RRP of 130 it will be available here in the UK, Europe, Taiwan, China, Canada, USA and Global Travel Retail.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Treacle toffee with a coffee edge, a candied orange citrus and a touch of pear, vanilla, some distant gentle floral notes.

Taste: Rich, sweet and smooth, gently spiced orange marmalade leads, a delicious mild barley sugared sweetness, treacle toffee.

Finish: Long, the toffee is more vanilla than treacle now and the orange is still hanging in there but becomes a little more spicy.

Comment: This has such a lovely dark amber natural colour not really represented in the image above, it has a lovely orange note from nose to finish which starts sweet and gets spicier. It certainly shows how good Tobermory can be with more years in the cask and the Marsala finish has simply enhanced the whisky.

SMW Score 87/100
