Tobermory 2008/13 year old Carn Mor Strictly Limited Scotch Whisky
The Carn Mor Strictly Limited range of Scotch Whisky from the Family-owned Independent Bottlers, Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers, are a collection of Scotch whiskies from some of the finest distilleries in Scotland. What makes the whiskies so special is that all the whiskies are non-chill-filtered to keep all of the oils and proteins that give it that fantastic authentic and non-doctored flavour in the bottle. As real as it gets.
This 13 year old scotch whisky was distilled in 2008 at the Tobermory distillery on the isle of Mull. After an initial maturation in barrels this whisky was finished for an additional period of maturation in virgin oak casks. Prior to bottling the whisky was proofed back to 47.5% ABV, with no chill-filtration or colour added. 1554 bottles were produced.
Some tell-tale Tobermory 'funk' is present in the glass with a classic 'chewy' malt style. The virgin oak finish has added layers of bright spice and cedar notes. The 'finish' has been extremely well managed, adding complexity in an elegant and subtle way. The palate has a great buttery-ness, pineapples, peaches, oranges, ginger spice and a delightfully dry medium-long finish.
Distilled 2008, bottled 2021.
