Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1967 HH
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.34 points
- 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.
Big sherry and malt. Prune. Citruses and green apple. Tobacco and gunpowder. Oak.
Powerful. Sherry. Orange, prune and chestnut puree. Pepper and ginger. Oak.
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.
- 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.
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.
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.
Long, dry and slightly resinous, but still a bit of honeyed fruits to balance.
