Today I have tasted Tobermory 15 years old. It comes from Isle of Mull in the West part of Scotland. North from famous Isle of Islay (eg. Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Bowmore) and Isle of Jura (Jura) and on the West of self-proclaimed capital of seafood town of Oban, indeed their seafood is delicious. Tobermory Distillery is the only distillery on the island, and is one of the oldest in the country.

Whisky is bottled un-chillfiltered, natural colour and 46,3% ABV, which definitely is an advantage . Un-chillfiltration leaves whisky in natural form, without depriving of its esters, affecting the appearance (more oily nature), smell and taste. The natural colour also means natural form – without colouring with caramel, that can affect both the taste and smell. The higher alcohol content effects the same on increasing the taste and smell.

N: sherry, ripe fruit, raisins, a bit of figs, and further notes of vanilla;

T: slightly spicy, notes of oak, chocolate, cocoa, very rich flavor of fruits such as plums, nectarines, after adding a little water all the flavors gain intensity, it seems that there is also a hint of peat;

F: medium long with notes of oak and some raisins.

Very nice malt, basically for any occasion, especially now when it should be Spring but and it’s Winter.

Score: 85/100

    Nie wiem czy fotografia oddaje to w pełni ale kolor malta wygląda to nieziemsko. Zwłaszcza że nie był dodawany karmel.

    Zawsze przy subiektywnych ocenach ciekawią mnie okoliczności przy jakich zdecydowałeś się akurat na ten akurat trunek. Jak to było w twoim przypadku?? 🙂

      Uważam, że o kolorze warto rozmawiać, gdy mamy do czynienia z whisky nie barwioną. Tak jest w tym przypadku. Kolor tego malta rzeczywiście jest ciekawy. Choć zasadniczo elemet ten nie wpływa na zapach czy też smak. Przy ocenie, kupnie whisky nie kieruję się barwą. Natomiast na pewno chętniej sięgnę po malta w naturalnej postaci.
      Co do wyboru Tobermory 15 yo, to nie kryje się za tym żadna nadzwyczajna historia. Próbowałem wcześniej wersję 10 yo, smakowa mi, stąd chęć degustacji starszego wydania.
