    What a chameleon. Almost every taste is represented in this malt: intense dried fruits, sweetness, loamy earth tones, spicy woody elements, wet foliage, nuts and pleasant sharpness. An interesting and tasty drop, I like it.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully light brown with an orange red shimmer, the Tomatin shines pure and clear in the glass. From the streaks formed after pouring on the glass wall, scattered syrupy drops emerge. Even from afar, the rising fruity aromas of dried berries and grapes are perceptible. Fermented and dried fruits mix with dark caramel and dark chocolate at the beginning of nosing. Old sun-dried orange slices and apricot slices dip in creamy dark chocolate, a touch of rising espresso scent mingles with spicy wood elements. The 64.4% alcohol content is perfectly integrated and supports the intense sherry aromas. Slowly, the nose changes: damp soil mixes with wet leaves, the fruit notes are neither sourish nor a little bitter. After repeated Nosing the alcohol content increases noticeably, but does not bother. Malty, loamy aromas come to the fore, the sour fruit flavors become sweeter and more supple again. A touch of vanilla rises from the intense fruit note, honey and caramel or toffee merge together. Gradually my salivation is stimulated, I look forward to the first sip ...
    • Taste
      The first sip is dominated by a mixture of dried fruits and spicy wood. Dark chocolate melts on the tongue, espresso and spicy wood elements warm the palate. Slowly, the chubby mouth feeling becomes more intense, wooden sharpness settles pleasantly around the tongue. A pinch of white pepper and a hint of salt envelops the tongue and creeps up the palate. Oily and creamy pieces of wood on the tongue release their spicy aroma, a bit of butter melts slowly on the palate, butter biscuit mixes with almond. Walnut aromas combine with dark cherries and suddenly the aroma changes to harsh and wet foliage. The walnut aroma is intensified, dry wood tones appear, a wet pile of leaves is heated by the sun's rays. Moist earth and clay reappear, creamy butter flows over wet leaves. The dried fruit and the dark chocolate is still present ..... The flavors change from moment to moment, at the moment dominate the earthy leafy aromas ...
    • Finish
      Herb and earthy, the departure begins. The pile of leaves still steams in the evening sun and releases the most diverse aromas: wet leaves, dry and spicy wood, dried berries and grapes, creamy butter and almost mineral notes. Slowly, the different aroma blend ends and leaves an earthy and foliagey creamy fruit mix on the palate ...

    Actually the abv is too high and before any meaningful tasting is possible some water should be added (better lots of). With water it is more fruity and more subtle aromas are coming out of it. Unfortunately I don't like the notes of butterscotch too much.
    • Nose
      Intense, sherry, rubbery, nutty, hints of cooked oranges
    • Taste
      Punchy, nuts, oak wood, butterscotch, little fruitiness, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Long, burning - obviously because of the high abv - lots of water recommended

    Wow! Tomatin splits yes the fan base. There are the absolute fans and those who are "not so warm" with it. I already had some in the glass, the best of course was by far the Tomatin 30th A tropical fruit cocktail, the same seeks. However, with about 350+ euros barely affordable. The current Tomatin Cask Strength is okay, but you drink very quickly and the 18er goes like this. THIS here ... has everything you expect from a powerful, dynamic whisky. At the age of 10, he has at least a certain age, the color at least pleases the eye and with the 64.4% cask strength all cask strength lovers will get their money's worth. There are plenty of opportunities to experiment with water and elicit more of his secrets from the malt. From me, the tomato gets a clear recommendation. I am now on cask strength and I will not be disappointed with this whisky. He brings everything I like: sweetness, fruits, coffee, cocoa, caramel, seasoning on tap and sufficient complexity. The price of 74.90 euros at TheWhiskyCask goes in my opinion perfectly fine. Of this I will definitely keep a few bottles in stock;) Thumbs up (y), buy! :)
    • Nose
      Yes!! So the nose gives it a lot: fruity aromas, dark caramel, dark chocolate, dried berries and grapes, dried fruits, oranges ... the alcohol is well integrated, but quite present. I could not imagine so much under malty, loamy flavors, but they seem to be some. The fruits dominate, followed by the chocolaty notes - not bad at all. With water: the tomato "opens" The alcohol is milder, the fruits and the chocolate softer, more present. I would say a clear gain.
    • Taste
      In the mouth then the tomatin is amazingly spicy! Espresso and spicy wood, pepper, light floral impression paired with traces of walnuts. I've never had "wet leaves" in my mouth, so I can not describe how it tastes, but I can not find it on the first try. Anyway, the tomato in a few drops of water is very pleasant on the tongue and does not burn at all. With the second sip, more and more caramel spreads at the edges of the jaws, without, however, suppressing the wort of the barrel. Seeeehr seeeehr delicious and tasty :)
    • Finish
      In the finish, of course, the spicy notes are initially quite dominant, but in my opinion come back very quickly back to the sweet impressions of the fruits of nosing. I would describe the finish as medium long. Anyway, the tongue tip is slowly dry and sticks to the palate. Only now do I imagine to feel the earthy notes, from me also the wet foliage ...
