  1. Igor scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very, very good Tomatin. But it's a shame, only it costs a lot.
    • Nose
      Enticing, refined sherry aromatics, deep and warm(?), in harmony with some nicely presented oaky notes, which imply good quality casks thereby. Further, Christmas cake signature exudes, along with toasted almond, cinnamon, black liquorice, sunflower oil, lacquered wood, dichlorvos?, essential oils, rye, buckwheat honey. Then, down below, I think I pick some pine scents, cedarwood, hazelnuts, it's getting oakier, and darker(?), tea brew, Slivovitz (plum brandy), dry old wood, touch of spearmint, wormwood maybe.

      Complex nose, that's for sure, although it's never overwhelming. No excessive warmth and no sharp edges anyway.
    • Taste
      Massive! It is obviously bigger on the palate than on the nose, the alcohol feels stronger here of course, and yet it has been balanced really well. Quite smooth and soft in texture, in spite of that ever increasing alcoholic heat. Starts bitter, then adds spices, slows down, then attacks again, whilst bringing out wild orange, tangerine, cardboard-y bitterness, (strong) Rakija, and minerality.
    • Finish
      Dies out on ginger, grapefruit, orange rinds, bitter tangerines, nutmeg and clove spice, bitter-dry herbs, dry wood, lemon peel. Seems like long finish.

    Tried this one at the Whisky Live 2012 Shanghai:

    it is very good whisky, just lacking a bit of richness, balance and sherry-finesse which other, mainly Speysiders do better. Most impressive is the very elegant, heaviest decanter which I ever had in my hands. Packaging is worth 100 points. A real showpiece.

    From a refill Sherry puncheon, which has yielded 560 bottles, this single cask
    Tomatin bottling offers an interesting stylistic contrast with the
    simultaneously released 1973 variant from a refill American oak cask. Sherry and
    caramel on the big, confident nose, cocoa powder, aniseed and treacle with time.
    Full-bodied, mouth-coating, spicy Sherry, plain chocolate, hazelnuts and
    liquorice on the palate. Oranges and soft toffee when water is added. Finally,
    quite astringent in the lengthy finish.
