  1. Kilo1 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    A little tastier than the new release, but also very sharp.

  2. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Tasted form a trio of the standard releases - 12/15/18.
    Tomatin another hidden Highland gem or another bottling to go by the wayside?

      Nose is fruity-sweet. Rich caramel and stone fruits, some red fruits like raspberry coulis and apricot. Some malt, some of everything with a twist of jube-jube candy in there too. Sweet and easy to approach. As it opens the wood becomes more prevalent and sharpens the nose a bit, more astringent to counter the sweets, maybe a touch of apple skins/tannic note in there too.

      Red delicious apple takes front line and carries malt with it. More sweets, boiled sweets and a touch of sweet coffee syrup. Red fruits, jammy sort of easy drinking stuff that you can unwind to after a long day.
    • Finish

      Here's where I'm not so sold on this. The finish seems to run back and forth between sweet woody/creamy and astringent woody/creamy. The vanilla is lovely and the oak usually balanced, then it twists and I get barrel char acidity and subtle smoke with a dryer finish. Seems like it's fighting itself.
