This relatively young Tobermory was finished on a small port cask, a Port Quarter Cask to be precise. That will undoubtedly yield a lot of sweetness. It was bottled in the so-called Exploration Series. Well, this makes me doubt whether it is Tobermory or Ledaig, because there are a lot of salty, maritime notes in this nose. But no, I don't really have peat. A nose full of salt under which a stew of white fruit is simmering. I also get some rhubarb, caramel and red berries. It is nice and mouth-filling, slightly spicy on nutmeg and cinnamon, but above all powerful and rich. It is a real battle between sweet and salty. The sweet translates to red berries, pomegranate and raisins, while the salty translates to brackish water and kelp. A nice combo that provides a satisfying complexity. I'm happy with this. The finish is long, sweet versus salty, satisfying and long. Oh, wait, I said that. Count on about 100 EUR. Thank you, again, Benny.
