This is a 10 year single malt Tobermory OB expression bottled at 46.3% ABV.
Nose: Heavy tar with fermented fruits, buttermilk, brackish water, a bit of latex paint with some earthy malt alongside toffee and over-ripe bananas.
Palate: Remains earthy on entry with funky oak and butterscotch predominantly. Some orange peel tucked in a muddy, peppery malt.
Finish: Buttery with mild oak and honey.
Rating: 84/100 – The first Tobermory I’ve tried – reminds me of Springbank in a way with a lot of odd, funky notes making it a fairly unique 10 year malt.
Value for the money: These look to retail around $45-$50 which is a pretty fair price in my opinion.
