Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 2008 WCh

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.43 points

  1. redlightsflash89 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    I really like tomatins normally, and I also like sherry cask bottlings by the Whisky chamber. So this sounds like a great combination to me.

    I like this more with water, so this review is with water.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A little bit stingy in the nose. And alcoholic menthol is quite present even after some time. It does open up though to vanilla, candy, light chocolate, raisins and a nice Berry sweetness (strawberries) but it stays stingy. With a better balanced nose this rating could be 2 points higher for sure.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Starts out with vanilla and caramel, also a funny sugar sweet note. This then gives way for chocolate and a light oak bitterness
    • Finish
      88 88
      Very long. Confirms the taste but it is even more bitter and more chocolate. The sweet note is almost gone and it is replaced by rasberries, cranberries and sour cherries also quite a strong oak influence but very good indeed.

  3. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    hmmm, I'm not conclusive
    somewhat flat, spirit barrel does not fit properly
    a few drops of water make it more pleasant
    • Nose
      Sherry, more nutty, red berry, slightly sulfur, slightly leather, slightly tobacco, later fruity
    • Taste
      round and strong, something tingles
      Chocolate so 60%, sherry, tart, licorice
    • Finish
      long
      dry, tart !!, oak !!
