Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1988 DR

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.90 points

  1. el Gato scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Love first sniff. Fruity! And towards the tropical ones that I just love in Tomatins. Eartly and perhaps some farmy notes. Sweet spices, rapberries, eucalyptus
    • Taste
      Fruity, less towards the tropical side now. Raspberries, but more candy feel. Cinnamon. Oily.  
    • Finish
      Bitter development. Spicy, sweet. A hint of tea as well. Mouthwatering, really.

    Tomatin 21 yo 1988 (55,2%, A.D. Rattray 2010, cask #1088, 213 btl.)

    Nose: really sweet up front. Very fruity. Also a hint of grass and hay, but it fades quickly (and comes back with some water). Not the tropical fruits we expect from a 1970’s Tomatin, more like stewed fruits. Apricot. Apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Developing on oak spices (nutmeg, cinnamon). Mouth: oily and spicy attack. Quite some fruits again, now dried rather than fresh fruit. Vanilla. Nutmeg, ginger and soft pepper taking the lead. Water softens the spices and makes place for the fruits: butter pears, yellow raisins, mango crumble. Finish: long and spicy, with some herbal tea and oranges.

    A solid Tomatin, full of fruits and spices. Water adds an extra dimension, so be sure to play around with it. Well priced: around € 80.

    Score: 86/100

    • Nose
      Behaved in the nose, restrained yellow Tropfrfr
    • Taste
      Full on the palate, strong, woody, sweet, medium-heavy, dried apricots
    • Finish
      Complex finish, wood, delicate marzipan, slightly fruity and sweet. Very dense even in the finish, finally comes dry again through the wood.
