    The nose is malty and fruity with hints of peaches, pears, and grass. The taste redefines thick…oily with a great mouthfeel, and malty with a hint of hazelnut. The finish is malty with a slight hint of oak. This whisky is smooth with a great balance and intense malt from nose to finish. Very consistent…and excellent!

    Tomatin 19 yo 1989 (57,6%, Master of Malt 2008)

    Nose: very nice indeed. An entertaining battle between citrus (lots of oranges) and fresh oak. It seems like it has been aged in a very active cask, because it reminds me of Glenmorangie / BenRiach in virgin oak casks. On one hand, the spices (cinnamon) give it a lot of depth with a prickly edge, but on the other hand some flowery notes and soft vanilla give it a soothing feminine side. Water brings forward some tropical notes (mango? coconut?). Really good. Mouth: again very punchy. No shortage of oak, but enough fruity notes as well (pears, slightly bittersweet grapefruit). Hints of spices (ginger). Citrus. Towards the end it gets a herbal edge. Water emphasises the wood (maybe a tad too much?) and the herbal notes. Finish: long, on liquorice and nutmeg.

    Fry is right, this Tomatin is a solid Master of Malt release. The only remark would be that it underscores the wood quite strongly and slightly overpowers the fruity notes. Recommended.

    Score: 86/100
