    Not bad, for a 15 year old but not that hoped for. Already had much better Tomatin in the glass
    • Nose
      Simple malt, sweet nose, vanilla notes, biscuit, malt and light fruitiness.
    • Taste
      The taste is found again, without giving a special flavor.
    • Finish
      The appendage is quite short and late comes a slight gum. Unusual....

    • Nose
      first a fruity and mentholy fresh note, then grapefruit. Nose is quite light but present, vanilla and some keksteig, to coconut notes. after a few minutes mandarins join.
    • Taste
      soft and mild taste, creamy and slightly buttery, citrus freshness which is replaced by delicate spice and then some bitterness.
    • Finish
      The departure is quite short and easy.

    Gain flavor with some water & relax after a busy day. With a decent splash of water also what a balmy summer evening.
    • Nose
      Malt, freshly sawn wood, menthol. From scratch, a small lemony fragrance & the touch of freshly cut cereal and a hint of caramel. With water there are new oak beams. A slight hint of mint surrounds a distant fruit bowl and a nearly empty sachet of chocolate powder.
    • Taste
      A mouthfeel, as befits a broad-shouldered malt like Tomatin: clear, defined & relatively firm. The taste reveals a bit of malt, fresh oak beams, notes of caramel and finally white pepper. Strangely enough, malt and oak hide tiny tiny notes of wine. A second tasting a few weeks later confirmed this again. With water, the wine splashes are gone. The whisky is sweet with a clear caramel and some oak. The sweetness is rounded off with a small spoon of honey and as a counterpoint to a prisae of white moist pepper.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the 15-year-old shows all his qualities. On the left a good pinch of pepper, in the middle soft notes of oak and on the right a few spices. The whole thing revolves around toffee and a hint of vanilla. The peppery pungency keeps well & long. With water, a small custard floats over a piece of hard caramel, while the tongue is pleasantly spicy covered by white pepper & fresh wood notes,

  7. Goethe scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    A very simple Tomatin, like the Legacy and the 12 year old. Quite refillish and more alcoholic than younger versions.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 6/10
    • Nose
      Vanilla, citrus, tropical fruits, hints of honey.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, apples, oranges, dried fruits, some wild honey on a wood stick.
    • Finish
      Medium. Some fruity tannins getting dry.

  8. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruity and light. Ripe green and yellow fruit, banana, acetone notes, mild vanilla, mild citrus, and watery honey. 
    • Taste
      Elegant. Mild drying spice up front with watery honey, banana, and yellow fruit. 
    • Finish
      Diaphanous. Drying medium finish with a hint of spice and sweet
