  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    For the new 2018 vintage..

    N: Buttered toast, graham cracker, dust, grain, liquid honey

    P: Soft, peaches and nectarines, vanilla, oak spice, a dusting of all spice

    F: Peaches in syrup, brown sugar, ice cream.

    A very nice and totally quaffable malt. Of course way overpriced.

    Serge says:
    Tomatin 21 yo (52%, OB, casks #31648 to 31654, 2400 bottles, +/- 2010)
    Colour: gold. Nose: it’s not an ueberfruity Tomatin such as the old
    ones that we enjoy so much, it’s rather an austere one, grassy and
    vegetal, that displays unexpected notes of vegetables such as artichokes
    or asparagus beyond quite some vanilla. I know that sounds unlikely but
    it’s actually very nice, not only because it’s ‘different’. Very
    straight grassiness. With water: becomes extremely flinty, almost
    chalky. Whiffs of leaven, then fresh parsley. Again, quite unusual but I
    like this a lot. Mouth (neat): much more sweetness than in the nose and
    a great creaminess. Coconut, vanilla, marzipan, sap, black raisins
    (suggests sherry)… All good! With water: gets slightly thinner but the
    profile is quite perfect, more or less on the same notes than when
    undiluted. Finish: medium long, with hints of ginger and nutmeg that
    suggest rather active American oak. Comments: very, very, very good.
    What else can I say? SGP:551 - 86 points.

    Chocolate, cool, citrus, orange, floral, peach, overripe kiwi, bit of toffee. Medium long finish after fruit and oak.

    This expression comprises a vatting of seven casks, six of which were refill
    American oak and one of which was an ex-Sherry butt. This is the pick of the
    trio for whisky-pages samplers. Quite delicate, even reticent on the nose,
    mildly herbal and leathery, with resin and stewed fruits. Heathery, malty,
    honeyed and slightly smoky on the palate ? eminently drinkable. Fruitier with
    the addition of water. Medium in length, with pleasant, background oak. (2,400
    bottles) specialist retailers worldwide.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: A bounty of fruits! Peaches, gooseberries and kiwis, all jostling for attention. A floral touch near the centre.Palate: The fruits play a big part on the palate, but the smoke sneaking through from deep within make it an absolute pleasure.Finish: Oak spices appear on the finish.Overall: A very bright and lively Highland whisky from Tomatin.
