Tobermory 10 YO Isle of Mull Single Malt Scotch Whisky 46.3% 700ml
Unusual herbal and earthy notes to start on the nose. Soon overtaken by floral wave followed by vanilla and cinnamon. Some gentle smoke in the background. Easy passage into the mouth with dark chocolate and touch of coffee flavours as well as sweet malt. Smooth and well textured. Gentle finish with smoky notes.
The elegant bouquet is rich, gently sweet and generously malty. The palate entry is slightly salty and faintly peaty; at midpalate the grainy sweetness returns with traces of green vegetable, mint and black tea. Finishes with the tea flavor dominant. A good introductory island malt of finesse and substance.
