    Outstanding Tomatin, with a surprisingly light oak and medium sherry. Almost a half century in a refill butt well complements the rich fruity distillery character.
    • Nose
      Big sherry and malt. Prune. Citruses and green apple. Tobacco and gunpowder. Oak.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Sherry. Orange, prune and chestnut puree. Pepper and ginger. Oak.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, fruity.

    Tomatin 44 yo 1967/2012 (51.9%, Clan Denny for The Whisky Fair Limburg, refill butt, cask #HH7993) Colour: gold. Nose: ho-ho, this is potent! Not the expected smooth and delicate old malt, rather a heady calvados-like spirit, full of cider apples (obviously), tobacco, prunes, balsamic vinegar, gunpowder and flints (not sulphur-driven at all) and cured ham. Also a pleasant mustiness, mushrooms, moss, old cellar… Works well so far! With water: little changes, maybe more tobacco and leather. Mouth (neat): again, it’s impressively big and without any obvious signs of old age. Starts on an orange + pepper combination (make that bitter oranges) and goes on with more ginger and walnuts, with a feeling of amontillado. Meat sauce. Quite a beast. With water: it got perfect now (which translates into reaching 90 points in my little book). Ripe fruits and spices, in particular white pepper and cinnamon. I think the sherry got softer and more discreet. Finish: medium long, delicately spicy. Old style compote. Comments: it’s really got something of the best old calvados but let’s not forget that all aged spirits tend to converge when getting very old. SGP:561 - 90 points.

  7. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A nice Tomatin, that's certainly not past its due date and shows relatively little oak. Nonetheless it didn't really make me go "woohoo", which I hoped it would. It's not the most typical Tomatin either, it could have been a couple of other distilleries with sherry maturation.
    • Nose
      Quite prominent sherry notes. A lot of tobacco and roasted nuts (walnuts and hazelnuts). Some coffee and raisins. A little gunpowder. Well-controlled oak. A few vegetal notes. Overall not extremely fresh unfortunately, it's a little damp and musty for my personal taste (nothing dirty though) and I miss a bit of the Tomatin fruitiness.
    • Taste
      Powerful and quite sherried again. More classic now I'd say: raisins and fresh grape juice, prunes and oranges. Evolves on nutty notes, especially walnuts, and wood. Nutmeg and liquorice.
    • Finish
      Long, dry and slightly resinous, but still a bit of honeyed fruits to balance.
