    This has great balance, an excellent multi layered whisky
    • Nose
      Fruity with obvious depth. Butterscotch, honeycomb, plum, a little raspberry and fig with blackcurrant jam.
    • Taste
      Nice mouthfeel, fruit waves lash the tongue ( I cannot believe I just wrote that)Creamy, very well balanced on currants, chocolate, raspberry, cherry liqueur.
    • Finish
      Good medium length.

  6. LordBellamy scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Nose: very fatty nose, first thick and sweet apricot jam, then other fruits like kiwi, apples and gooseberry are added. Strong sweetness of brown sugar, underlined by oak. Then the Oloros come with sultanas and some dark chocolate Taste: An explosion in the mouth. Fat and oily, very strong texture, apricot, gooseberry, oak, thyme Finish: forever long, it does not want to stop, again oily, many cooked fruits, peach, apricot kernels, avocado and spicy oak, combined with a sugarcane sweetness and almonds Water: NO, not a drop!

    The portfolio of single malts from Tomatin distillery, south of Inverness, has
    been augmented with the introduction of 18 and 25-year-old expressions in recent
    years, and the latest additions are limited edition releases of 30 and
    40-year-old vintage bottlings. Both have been personally approved by distillery
    manager Douglas Campbell, who boasts 46 years of experience at the Highland
    distillery, and the 30 Years Old is described by the distillery as ?A classic
    vatting of two ex-Spanish Oloroso Sherry cask finishes.? Distilled in November
    1976 and finished in the Sherry wood for more than three years, this expression
    offers a mature and sophisticated nose with apricots, raisins and spicy leather
    notes. Water releases more citrus fruits and fudge. Big and very fruity on the
    smooth palate, with oranges and delicate spice. The finish is medium in length,
    drying through fruit and bubblegum notes to acceptable oakiness. Only 1,500
