Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1989 MoM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.75 points

  1. Volanne scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A sneaky malt. Starts easy and light and proves to be much more complex. A malt I would like to be friend with, but that I fail in really liking though. A curiosity.

    Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
    • Nose
      Light but expressive. White fruits. Apples, pears, and the freshness of a window box of geraniums after the rain. And salted liquorice to muscle it up. A little touch of white coffee and a light refreshing anise note. And fish cooking-herbs. Cod fish loin on a bed of fennel before getting into the oven. Very "Pultneyan" it is. Not really my playground, to be honest, but definitely interesting.
    • Taste
      Starts on kind vanilla. Quite light (43?) but far from being weak. The salted liquorice comes back on the foreground, with more salt than liquorice actually. And still something quite flowery. Salt and vanilla call the tune. The whole is nicely balanced but remains less playful than the nose.
    • Finish
      The floral notes remain and evolve on the bitterness of the grapefruit's skin.

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Intense exotic fruits.
    • Taste
      Full and fruity, sweet barley, spicy.
    • Finish
      Melon and pear, medium long.

  3. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    a whisky that is young and reduced, with unattractive aromas.

    Tasted as part of the WDTS.
    • Nose
      multivitamin fruit juice, diluted powdered tang, a farmer and spicy
    • Taste
      in line ; Apple pear ; a little vanilla too.
    • Finish
      average on the aforementioned fruits
