.tobermory – 1995 – the exclusive malts

51,5% abv, €57, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural color

Nose: sweet, vanilla, fresh fruits, pear, floral, lavender, citrus, oranges, pineapples, rum-like, molasses, sugar cane
Palate: sweet, white pepper, sugar coated nuts, hazelnuts, hard caramel
Finish: strong, hazelnuts, sweet, caramel
Mark: ++++/+

Conclusion: Great dram. It can handle a good quantity of water, which lets it open up to the floral notes and brings out the nutty tones. I would like to see more of these kind of bottlings.

More info: distilled on 06/05/1995, bottled in 2011 from cask #682, 1 of 189 bottles. We have paired this during a whisky dinner with a beautiful starter dish with frogfish.
