    Tomatin, 15 years, 59.2% Impressions during the mara-tasting from 29.03.2008: Amber, very oily, many sweet fruits, apricots, peach, pineapple in the taste it retains the sweetness but also looks a bit woody, it loses this woody tone and becomes peppery, very persistent with a slightly bitter finish. With water it looks creamier and fuller. A few drops of water are good for him!

    Tomatin 15 years, 59.2% alc.
    Bottler: Sestante
    Region: Highlands, Scotland

    Nose: How from another time - and should be only 15 years young? Very complex with lots of fruit: apple, pear, annans, apricot and sometimes a little peach comes up. After a while, the nose changes and becomes drier: dried banana, orange peel, raisins and some wax. With vanilla and very mild cocoa.

    Palate: Aggressive and rich in content, different from the nose and yet suitable. Dry and very spicy, very light and very dry. Then wheat toast with a slightly bitter orange marmalade, with cappuccino. The banana will come again. Heavily complex and complex.

    Finish: Long and warming and somewhat simpler than the palate, but with a little more spice and a nice pepper note.

    Conclusion: That's shit and you definitely do not want to try it. So if you still have a closed bottle in the basement - I have mercy on me and like to buy it ;-) Fun aside, does it take the Notes nor a conclusion? Definitely a great whisky!

    The 15-year-old Sestante Tomatin is the king of the class! Enormously complex and fruity. Simply an all-round whisky. The only downer is the price

    Seems much older than 15 years. Very active cask.
    • Nose
      A densed aroma of fruit and wood. Reminds me of cognac/armagnac. Vanilla, werthers, more citrus after some time.  
    • Taste
      Round, full and thick. Orange, marmelade.
    • Finish
      Spicey like dried red pepper with mint but with enough sweetness in the mouth to keep it smooth.
      Long finish.

    very nice dram for a 15yo.
    • Nose
      creamy, fruity, sherry, 1 fruit gum, 1 piece of chocolate
    • Taste
      sherry, full-bodied, less fruits, very pleasant
    • Finish
      sherry, malt, green, tea, middle-long, but adhesive
