  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Superb nose, worth the detour on its own.
    Unfortunately the degree catches up with it in the mouth, where we lack a little depth.
    • Nose
      93 93
      Very light and fragrant nose. Lots of complexity and presence.
      Lots of melon, apricot, peach. It's very refreshing. White pepper.
      Eucalyptus, thyme. Which brings even more freshness.
      Acacia honey.
    • Taste
      90 90
      On the palate, it is on sunflower oil, peach, pepper. Melon, peach in syrup.
      Always the freshness of aromatic herbs. Thyme and fresh mint.

      Unfortunately we would like a few more degrees.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long finish on Pepper, mint, eucalyptus.
      Slight minerality and peat.

  7. aphex scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Despite its vintage, age and low ABV this Tomatin was very lively and fresh. Fantastic nose, beautiful palate. It kept growing on me with each sipping.

    Tasting note from august 2017.
    • Nose
      Fruity and flowery. Peaches, apricots, melon. Spices, vanilla, tea, mint. Elegant, complex and fresh.
    • Taste
      Fruity and peppery and very fresh again. Peaches, passion fruits, apples, pears and a bit of oak.
    • Finish
      Medium, fruity, earthy.
