  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Quite big and 'fattish' sherry wood influenced Tomatin. Not very well balanced, but always nice to taste whisky from this sympathetic distillery.
    • Nose
      Lots of gingerbread and cinnamon at first nosing. Followed with hints of cacao butter, roasted chestnuts and rum-raisins. Also dark roast coffee beans. Later on meaty notes and some gravy. Mint and charred oak at the background.
    • Taste
      Now more on stewed fruits of figs and dates. butterscotch and plenty of toffee. Dark chocolate. Plum and blackberry jams as well. Tobacco leaves and new leather. It's all very 'fattish' with some off notes,
    • Finish
      Medium long. Quite peppery. Ginger. Bitter cloves at the end.

    The nose is ok but the 2005 cask 5218 is a hard act to follow.
    Still pretty good but a little wood on the palate, with spicy orange notes and plenty of sherry that mix well together, if not being particularly exciting.
    The finish actually gets a little sweeter and is the best part.
    With water , the sweetens lessens and it actually gets a little hot and looses balance so better neat in my view.
