    This was once a nice Tomatin, I am sure. But those days are long gone.
    Could it be due to the fact that this whisky has been sitting in the bottle for
    all those years, knowing that only a few drams were left? Probably. Good thing
    I finished it off, then.
    • Nose


      On the nose, I get quite a few dusty associations, but aside from that,
      it is very fruity. Pineapple and overripe peaches, some brésilienne nuts and
      brown banana A hint of buttermilk is something of a party pooper. Caramel candy
      like Werthers Original make up for it. 
    • Taste


      Unfortunately, the whisky is very, very watery. Quite flat, indeed. Yes,
      there is some fruit, sure. But also a lot of bitterness. Some spices try to
      save the day, but to no avail.
    • Finish


      The finish is fairly long and a combination of bitter and salt. Not
      really that good, I must say.
