Tobermory 1972 32 Years

DESCRIPTION

A limited edition Tobermory from 1972, finished in Oloroso sherry casks for a deliciously rich sweetness. Released in 2005, we have been very lucky to get our hands on a small parcel of stock of this gem.

TASTING NOTES 

This older one has been finished in oloroso casks.

Colour: dark amber. Nose: heavy dry sherry, hugely classical, with the usual cortege of coffee, raisins, chocolate, rum, cooked fruits, smoke, game and mint. Nothing more but nothing less. Totally flawless, no weird aromas here.

Mouth: hugely concentrated, maybe more like fortified oloroso than like finished or sherry-matured whisky. Hugely chocolaty, lots of cooked strawberries, excellent dryness and quite some tannins. One of the most extreme sherry monster I’ve had recently. No distillery character that I can get except maybe a faint cardboardiness but that may well be the wood as well.

Finish: not very long but pleasantly dry and coffeeish. Extreme but again, flawless – but you really have to like sherry in you malt. 87 points.
