  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 90 points Moderator

    Very chocolaty with lots of herbs - no wonder after 45yo in the cask - very good
    • Nose
      89 89
      Nutty, whiffs of resin, acacia honey, sherry wood, leather couch, rubber tyres, herbs, thyme, sage, rosemary, cloves, caraway, hints of toffee, milk chocolate
    • Taste
      91 91
      Lots of milk chocolate, good sweetness, fine sherry wood, dark berries, little bit of dried fruits, quite creamy and mellow, cooked fruits, jam, oranges - very good
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, warm, more punchy, more spices, more herbs, little bit of tannins, cocoa powder, still enough chocolate taste to avoid any dryness

  2. sagara-kun scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    It's very powerful for 45yo. Very good but sulfur, and unfortunately it is a real brake for me.
    • Nose
      Nose sulfur unfortunately. Red fruits. Mure, currant, blueberry. Macerated fruits. Figs. Prunes. Stable. Purin, dirty earth.
    • Taste
      In the mouth we keep the sulfur side Dried fruits. Nuts. Dry almonds. Red fruits. Oily leather.
    • Finish
      Finale on red fruit drawing. Blueberry

  3. el Gato scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very good dram. Very delicate, almost too delicate? Do prefer the more tropial Tomatins, to be honest. 89-90p.
    • Nose
      Fine, subtile nose. Slight sherry influence. A bit more time, then eartly notes take over. Definately cut grass. Hints of tropical fruits. Toffee. Malt
    • Taste
      Malt and toffee. Fruity. Oily feel. A bit spicy
    • Finish
      Getting spicier, and bitter. You do get a some sulphur in the end.

  5. granella2003 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A rich, full-bodied whisky with loads of
    influence from the sherry cask...
    • Nose
      Rich fruits and sherried peels. Hints of mixed peels, allspice, butterscotch and
      barley malt
    • Taste
      Malty, fruity palate with hints of spice, toffee
      apples and pepper. Very fruity indeed.
    • Finish
      Long and complex with huge spice notes and drying
      toasted oak
