Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 2002
16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.29 points
- The onset in the nose is fruity-sweet, the wine is immediately there. Sweet on the palate, then drier, with a good dose of oak and a warm, slightly sourish finish. The alcohol is good but not perfectly integrated, 46% fit well. Who likes wine in whisky is served very well here. I like it, not mega complex, but tasty and delicious. 87P
- Not bad, but too dominant wine influence.
A honey sweet Cabernet Sauvignon at 46% with a colour mix of light rosé and amber. Slow and oily tears in the glass.
The wine profile from the nose with extra herbs and spices. Dry tannins from the oak but still sweet and fruity at the end. I wouldn't call his a Cabernet Sauvignon finish anymore after 5 years but a second maturation. A good drink before going to bed and I don't make it a bad whisky but I miss a some whisky basics and stronger legs.
Medium finish, jammy sweet, slightly spicy and dry.
- beer funk (same as the standard 14), salty wine, wet wood, sweet, bitter, cardboard, beer malt finish. it’s just not enough they finished it, lacks quality and more gimmicky, i just hope they stop this trend
raisins, tow, machine oil.
raisins, plums, oak, ginger, bourbon, scalding.
- Fruity, sweet and spicy. Pretty good, I'd say. Although if you generally don't like wine finished whiskies, you should probably stay away from this one. Although not too dominant, the wine influence is clearly present.
Big nose, but not overpowering, just a rich aroma. Syrupy. Blue grapes, brown sugar, blackcurrants and a whiff of lime zest. Also damp oak and cherry pie.
The influence of the wine cask is once again evident. Thick and mouth-coating, sweet and slightly sour. There are berries and also some bitter oak, giving it a dry edge. Some spices as well, mainly cloves and cinnamon.
Ends on a spicy, drying note. Medium in length.
- I've adjusted myself to something weird and getting used to. But no indication. I think that's good. Experiment succeeded.
very own. The one who has seen in a red wine barrel, I sign it immediately. Very fruity with red berries. Just the association of clotted blood. The alcohol is barely noticeable.
again soft fruits. Very soft and elegant. Here a little clearer the alcohol. Neat sweet.
Beautifully oaky. Could be a tick longer. Pleasantly spicy bitterness. There is not much left of the dominant fruit sweetness.
- Requires a lot of time, improved clearly as more oxygen comes into contact with the dram. One of the better wine finishes and very balanced.
Clear cabernet, is this whisky or wine on a high abv? Spicy notes of black currants. Little blackberry jam-like smell, but less sweet. Nice playful very strong wine nose.
Ah whisky. The black berries remain, just like the spice, but the complete fruit basket of berries and citrus is now full open with subtle wood tones and some spiciness.
Long, soft, fruity, spicy. Nicely balanced.
- I tasted the Whisky Festival 2017. Stylishly like Glen Garioch 15 yo 1998 Wine Cask Matured. I have the same rating for both. One of my favorite styles.
Warm, fruityly acidic, spicy (cinnamon, cloves), milk chocolate, creamy, figs, dates. (87 b)
A typical slush of a red wine barrel. Drying acidity, in many ways resembles sherry style, but differs in fruity acidity in reverberation. In the end, there is also the irradiation of the barrel, the so-called toast. (89 b)
