The nose on this is salty and fruity, with some seaweed, a hint of rubber and a prick of alcohol even at 43% ABV.    The taste is rich with toffee, burnt coffee, caramel at first then some more acrid camp fire notes and along with bitter fruit peels and spices.  The finish is gentle hum of heat and peppermint along with some smokiness.  At 43% ABV it can take a drop of water and still hold up, but it doesn't need it.  Overall a delicious expression from one of my favourite distilleries.

    A slightly odd nose on this one, I read anoither review that talked about sileage which can't be good.  In my notes I wrote candlewax, grains and malt and some wood.  The taste at first is very smooth, with some chocolate and caramel notes, nutty and creamy like a dessert but not as sweet.  The spice builds in the finish, but some milk chocolate lingers as well, along with vanilla and other hints of bourbon.  Dries out at the end.  Good and full flavored, due in part to the distillery owners policy of non-chill filltering any of their expressions and bottling at 46% ABV.  This is nice, these guys are slowly winning me over after the distillery visitor experience, see...  http://www.somanywhiskies.com/distilleries/item/106-tobermory .
