Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1987 CM

  1. rdavek scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I read the existing reviews after I bought this bottle in Pitlochry and immediately regretted the purchase.  This really highlights the difficulty in trusting the tasting notes of others.  The nose is definitely subdued as others have noted, but the palate...  The palate is complex, with notes of white fruit, baking spice, dried herbs, and a lingering sense of weed.  Every time I have a dram I am transported to an Amsterdam coffee shop in off hours.  Coming through not on the nose, but the palate, I get the sense of walking into an Amsterdam coffee shop when nobody is smoking, but the taste of high quality weed lingers in the air.  To quote my friend from Hamburg, "I like it very much".

    Not so much wood influence. I taste mainly grapefruit and some mint. Not

    bad as a Sunday afternoon drink but this whisky could better be used

    for a blend imo.

    Understated nose that needed water to release anything of note. Faint summer (berries) and orchard (cooking apples) fruits, alongside cereal notes, mingle with raw spirit and a hint of cardboard. Fiery and unrefined on the palate, even after the addition of water. Medium-length finish, with a bit too much bitterness. If tasted blind I would never have put this as a 20+yo malt!
