Whisky Online Auctions Tasting Notes: Tobermory Cask #1841
Clean, buttery and rich. Lightly spiced with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. A creamy vanilla note that leads to creme brulee, white pepper and eventually yellow plums and ripe garden fruits such as apples and gooseberries. A light biscuity sweetness in the background.
Surprisingly powerful on arrival. Excellent weight, strength and texture. Vividly peppery, warming and spicy again. Dried fruits this time with sultanas, banana chips, apricots and lemon peel. There’s also a light, autolytic stodgy quality that alludes to scone mix and sourdough.
Long, slightly yeasty, lemony, leathery and still with rather a lot of dried fruits and eventually hints of green tea, coconut and chamomile in the aftertaste.
A top-notch, perfectly mature and well-balanced cask of Tobermory that feels at times more like an older Speyside whisky than an islander. However, the overall quality is very impressive and this would be ready to bottle now or over the next 2-3 years. A surprisingly elegant and luxurious dram.
Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle.
