Words Of Whisky

Words of Whisky:

Nose: A touch of copper coins and sour beer, this sure smells like Tobermory to me (Ben Nevis sometimes has this distinct dirtiness as well). Soft tropical fruits as well, such as peaches and mango, but with a hint of vanilla sugar and traces of cloudy apple juice and rye bread.
Taste: Creamy mouthfeel and a somewhat sweet (raw sugar) and spicy arrival (white pepper), with just a pinch of salt. A nice amount of almonds, some orange peel and more vanilla sugar.
Finish: Lingering orchard fruits and straw. Medium in length.

Score: 89

It took me many years to appreciate this type of profile, but I’m definitely a fan of this particular release. Considering the light colour, you might be surprised to hear it matured in a refill sherry butt. It’s not a obviously sherry-matured whisky, but the sweet arrival was a sign.
