Tobermory 2005 12 Year Old Fino Cask Finish Review

5th October 2018
Review of Tobermory 2005 12 Year Old Fino Cask Finish Distell 2018 Malt Whisky Collection.

Tobermory 2005 12 Year Old Fino Cask FinishThe only Tobermory expression in Distell's inaugural Malt Whisky Collection, this Tobermory 2005 12 Year Old Fino Cask Finish  matured for a decade before being transferred to Fino sherry hogsheads for a further two years.

Bottled at Cask Strength, 55.1% ABV, natural colour and non chill filtered.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Mandarin orange infused vanilla toffee and a little sweet raisin.

Taste: A lovely rich palate, burnt orange and some sweet barley sugar vie for space in every corner of the mouth, creamy toffee and some dark chocolate. After a few mouthfuls more juicy barley and fruit (cherry, orange, raisins) some vibrant oak spice in the background.

Finish: A delicious lingering toffee'd, dried fruit, coffee'd, spicy finale.

Comment: A lovely rich Tobermory which gets spicier with each mouthful and demonstrates just how good Tobermory can be at this age, the bottling strength 55.1% has clearly added to the flavour and pleasure.

SMW Score 91/100
