Nose (21/25): Salty and oily - a bit "dirty", engine oil maybe? Caramel, sherry notes, dried fruit - figs and dates. There is something here that certainly does bring me back to the harbor in Tobermory, right outside the distillery.
Taste (21/25): Sugar, pepper, caramel, and ginger. A full and rich mouthfeel. Slightly oily and salty, the Tobermory harbor is present here as well.
Finish (22/25): Mild and rich. A very nice and mellow sweetness. It settles into a very comforting rhythm.
Balance (21/25): A very nice dram, which I image should best be enjoyed on the pier in Tobermory harbour on a sunny afternoon.
