Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1982 MC
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.09 points
- Actually when I opened the bottle it was not so fruity - now after a few months the whisky has improved a lot and I have to increase my rating significantly. The whisky has become very good, actually it is great now!
Rich, complex, intensive fruity, citrus fruits, oranges, tropical fruits, bananas, pineapples, passion fruits, wood and vanilla notes - it's an aromatic explosion - excellent!
Punchy, very oily and liquorice, oranges again, nice wood notes, subtle sweetness and fruitiness, more fruits of different kind
Long and warm
- Although this is my first tomato, I suspect that after 28 years, not much of the distillery character is left. The barrel flavors are already very strong. I do not think that's bad at all, I like those old whiskys. This first-class representative of his genus definitely tolerates some water and a few minutes rest before devoting himself to it.
The first thing in the nose is wood ... and, amazingly, young wood. The next thing that comes to my mind is 'Woodsap' (Ralfy from Ralfy.com uses that word more often).
The second smelling, a light alcoholic bite followed by strong sherry flavors.
Then a large amount of flavors storm my nose: plum compote, raisins, cloves, a hint of nutmeg, various blooming flowers (unfortunately can not name), overripe peach, an incredibly delicious sweetness (maybe juice orange?).
In between, always oak and sherry. Oh, what am I looking forward to the first Sip :)
With water: Even if it sounds very strange: I just thought of charcoal. Charcoal just being lit. Funny :) But then, first sweeter and fruity, cooked fruits, slightly cooling mint.
With even more water, the smell of liquid grill lighter sneaks in between, but then immediately pleasant flavors such as marzipan, molasses (almost reminds of rum), toffee, marshmallow ?, very light touch of black tea and biscuits. After about half an hour to smell and taste a pleasant smell of pipe tobacco rises to my nose.
The high alcohol distributes the whisky quickly and warmly in the mouth.
First, the taste of oak and clove dominates, followed directly by the sherry, not too sweet not too dry. Somehow, I'm just thinking of thyme and sage without tasting it directly.
Then the tongue is unfortunately a bit stunned. With water: More carnations. The complexity on the tongue is definite but not so easy to puzzle apart.
In the finish, the cheeks are slightly dull with clear oak and an appeal of "Packed Brown Sugar" (sugar and molasses) After the 2nd or 3rd sip, wonderful aromas such as dark chocolate or cocoa come on the finish. Gorgeous! I never want to brush my teeth again :)
- Very good and complex whisky.
Aromatic, herbal and fruity (dried plums). The sherry is not obvious. Complex, changes a lot. At one time it is like a herbal infusion, then it reminds me of apple cake, then there are notes of dates and the intensive smell of lebkuchen.
Smooth, rich and full flavored. Sherry has come to the fore with lebkuchen. A herbal tincture with a little oak and liquorice. In the background there are fruity notes of plum butter and amarena cherries.
Lomg and herbal, becoming more oaky.
