One of my all time favourites but the 15yr old sherry cask is worth the extra money

I call these kind of malts breakfast malts because it is light and refreshing and can be enjoyed any time of the day. I even detect a little raw pancake batter on the nose. Sure like many, I prefer the sherried Highland/Speysides and peaty Islays most of the time, but a young light, fruity, floral, oak cask malt is a nice change every now and again. Surprisingly mellow texture for such a young malt. Nice stuff for a low price.

Had never heard of it and didn't expect anything special at that price. I've just opened it and I find it to be a rather pleasant whisky. I have certainly tasted worse and spent double/triple that amount for the privilege.

Really, really nice and easy to drink. Not like any whisky.

Now that the Tobemory 10YO 40% is out of production and has been replaced with the 46.3% unchilled filter alternative im looking for a similar malt to replace it. Anyone got any ideas of what would be a very similar alternative?

Theres nothing wrong with it. Its simple, pleasant and easy to drink.It's somewhat faintly honeyed and floral with undertones.. of what I can only describe as "brussel sprouts" which also show up faintly in the nose as well ... though not in a bad way. There is something nice about this...I'd give it a 6.5/10.I might even prefer this to Glenmorangie 10.. and certainly over most blended stuff.

I love this Tobermory ..I was shocked at the whole nose and taste but in a good way. Really really like it.. No sherry and no peat and a really good dram!

Could never see what pleasure there was in drinking whisky (I much prefer brandy, but only the good stuff), but am now addicted to this delightful tipple.

I was initially put off by the nose (cabbage?) of the whisky

Read the bad reviews, but really this whisky is very smooth with some neat returns and overtones. Okay I agree it is not the ulter masterpiece of whisky, but it is great for a first time go and cheap-at least here in the good old USA.

I sampled Tobermory 10-year after an Oban 14-year, and was very disappointed. Seemed to my palate to be signally lacking in smoothness, and decidedly boring, possessing little in the way of finish.

I agree entirely with D Scott. It neither had me gasping in wonder nor sprinting, green-faced, for the toilet. I rather like the chocolatey overtones, leathery maltiness and quiet allusion to the sea.

Nowhere near as good as a Jameson a Tullamore or even black bush but ton’s better than that disinfectant smelling glass of peat that tries to pass as whiskey.

its actually quite nice if you don't like heavily peated whisky. easy to drink
- anonymous, 16th Aug '09
Doesnt get the best write up but easy to drink. Not one of the best but not one of the worst. Worth a shot in any case.

First time whisky drinkers would be put off for life. I actually think this is quite unpleasant.
- anonymous, 17th Apr '09
I've not tasted anything quite like this before. Can't put my finger on what it is. Oily, resinous, liquorice, garages.

Heads should roll for bottling this vile liquid. Stay away...
- anonymous, 16th Jan '09
I am enjoying a glass of this very light and pleasant whisky as I type. Could almost be classed as a breakfast whisky. Would recommend to first time malt drinkers
