  1. Astrid scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very harmonious range of aromas from start to finish. As is so often the case with these old malts, the influence of sherry and the wood of the barrel go together wonderfully. Only the low alcohol strength causes a bit of grief, there could have been more in it. For the full review, go here: https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2022/07/24/evolution-of-tomatin/

  6. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [2015]  I had this dram during a private tasting of whisky connoisseurs at Limburg.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  I
    took no detailed notes as there were simply too many drams...  Every
    connoisseur brought several bottles from his collection to the tasting
    where they were lined up by common decision.  Just 1 cl was served as
    otherwise we probably would not have seen the end of the tasting without
    medical problems. As this was a flabbergasting event I list all the line-up and my resp. scores below:

    Wonderfull Tomatin. I´m so impressed how it goes with only 43% ABV. Amacing decanter.
