Caermory Whisky Tasting Notes

Posted: December 29, 2015 in Scotch Whisky H-Z, Tobermory

Caermory Single Malt 21 year old 48.2%

A single cask of Tobermory – Cask 238/ Tasted: Oct 2015

The nose is quite oily with sugar coated barley, baked fruit and coffee’d oak. Wonderfully mature with hints of green fruit, citrus, light earth and milk chocolate. Some gentle creamy oak notes appear and the sweet, milky coffee notes increase. Is this really ‘mory?

The palate is pretty fresh and citric with wood spice and oily barley. Mature and quite fruity for a ‘mory with a distinct baked fruit demeanour. Some earthy and coffee’d tannins come through on the middle but the light fish oils balance the slight bitterness Good length with the woody spices returning. What no fustiness or wet cardboard. A damn fine old ‘mory!

A single cask of Tobermory – Cask 238/ Re-Tasted: Nov 2016

Edgy and earthy aromas of malt, damp earth and mature honey. Hints of balsamic baked fruit follow along with a little cigar smoke, barley and subtle spice. Very complex with salt, greengage, lime, mature oak and just a brief whiff of ‘distillery character’.

The palate is soft and mature with hints of malt, honey and dusty, mature oak. Pleasantly earthy on the middle with a suggestion of smoke and hints of salt and barley. Very pleasantly balances with a lightly spiced and salty finish.
