  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose shouldn't be the decider in this whisky. The dirty side of the nose is eminent, but the taste is fair.
    • Nose
      82 82
      This is a biter. You need to get through the alcohol first. But behind that, there is quite some fruitiness and sweetness. It gives a nice note of marzipan and something of a hay field. There is also a dirty side to the nose, which comes from the wine casks I suppose.
    • Taste
      85 85
      First arrival is quite on the bourbon influence, so toffee, crème brulée and vanilla. Then there is a dirty red wine influence, which is rather unusual but pleasant combination.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length. There is a first hit of bitterness and after that the bourbon influence comes clear. Vanilla ice-cream, some honey.

    Very good limited edition of Tomatin.
    • Nose
      Fruits (banana, grapes, red fruits), some vanilla, ginger.
    • Taste
      Very fruity (banana, grapes, apples, pears, clementines), caramel, vanilla, some cereals, some spices (pepper, ginger, cinnamon).
    • Finish
      Relatively long, tannins, spices (especially pepper), a touch of candy sugar on the tongue.

    A special full Tomatin 15 years,

    this very fruity and full of flavor containing Malt Whisky are filled with the rich flavors

    of plums, blackberries, grapefruit and very full notes of vanilla

    and candy and beeswax.By the very sweet tones in the

    single malt, some hints in the aftertaste clear and soft, as the hints of banana and pear, a special feeling but

    definitely worth it.

    Producer`s notes

    Aroma: Deep

    fruity aromas are dominant with plums, blackberries and fresh grapefruit

    taking centre stage. Softens with hints of vanilla, tobacco leaves,

    beeswax and sugar candy.
    Palate: The sweet candy flavour plays a major role

    in the overall structure of this single malt. Like the nose the palate

    is rewarded with some big fruity flavours - bananas, crunchy green

    apples and poached pears - which are nicely balanced with the drying

    tannins and white pepper.

    Finish: Once the spiciness subsides the finish is long lasting and very creamy.

    Plum jam, dark red gummi bears, rich prunes, pink grapefruit, vanilla toffee and cinnamon.

    Palate:
    Spongecake

    with blackcurrant and raspberry jam, red grapes, more cinnamon, toffee,

    green apple skin, an edge of menthol and fragrant wood.

    Finish:
    Spice, vanilla and red wine tannins.

    Comments:
    A very sweet nose that becomes much more balanced in the body, with spicy wood and sticky fruit.
