Douglas of Drumlanrig Tobermory Tasting Notes

Posted: May 2, 2013 in Scotch Whisky H-Z, Tobermory

Douglas of Drumlanrig Tobermory 2006 (6 year old) 46%

Sherry Butt ID8766/ Dist July 2006 Btl: July 2012/ Tasted: Apr 2013

A pungent nose of youthful cereal with a touch of cardboard, liquorice and light treacle. It’s ok by ‘mory standards but the nose feels a little disjointed. Hints of white vinegar, spice and some late sweet, creamy vanillins appear. I think I’m getting a touch of déjà vu here! 

The palate is soft and oily with some slight cardboard/ musty peat. Lumpen treacly, tannic sherry gives way to some building fishy notes. A little hollow but pleasant enough with a spicy if slightly bitter finish. It probably could have done with a bit longer in cask but the tannins may well have gripped the spirit harder by then.
