The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    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 .
