    [April, 2018]  I had this dram during the charity tasting at Limburg Whisky Fair.   

    The colour is old gold and the texture shows small tears with late slow legs.  The nose is completely old-stylish with nice OBFs beside the fine fruity-honey-spicy profile.  Really adorable for a 15-years old (compare this to today's 15-years old Tomatin and you will feel the difference with the very first sniff).  The dram arrives warming and nicely coating in the mouth with no distracting moments.  The taste is layered and very sweet (both on fruits and sugars) with some great flavours of white chocolate.  The finish is medium to long and adds a lot of fine spices that are delicious in this mix.  Water smoothes the dram further - actually I like the nose best when neat and the taste better after some water is added. 

    A truly old style dram that shows impressively why so many connoisseurs prefer this style over the modern designed whiskies.
