  1. SimonOHA scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruity and dense nose but also earthy.
    • Taste
      Oily and fatty palate, herbaceous, tea tree and bitterness.
    • Finish
      Very pleasant finish, bitterness at the end of the mouth transforms and old fruity and spicy flowers.

    Tomatin 24 yo 1988
    (48,7%, Eifelboys & Vinothek Massen 2013, first fill bourbon cask, 70 btl.)

    Nose: quite a full-bodied nose, sweet and fruity. Lots of stewed apples and apricot jam. Hints of vanilla ice cream with fragrant blueberries and hints of Parma violets. Also hay and leafy notes, evolving into soft herbal notes and heather. Mouth: slightly grassier right away now. Ginger, nutmeg and pepper, some toasted notes and chamomile tea. Fruity notes are still there, oranges, soft kiwi and fruitcake. I also found a hint of fragrant eucalyptus oils and floral notes, which was slightly disturbing. Ends nicely on some vanilla cream with caramel topping. Finish: quite long, half fruity, half spicy.

    An honest Tomatin. High quality no doubt, even though it’s not the most straightforward example I’ve come across. Not for sale. Thanks, Pieter.

    Score: 87/100

    This whisky
    just made my day. Just over 100 EUR, but apparently not for sale. Thanks,
    • Nose
      nose is fruity, but with a twist. Stewed fruits to be precise, but also quite
      herbal. All kinds of garden herbs, grass and hay. Cinnamon and nutmeg, too.
      Roasted nuts. Turkish delight. Marzipan. Bit of tobacco. Apricots too. But it
      has a weird, but very interesting aroma underneath, that I cannot quite
      pinpoint. Mashed patatoes with turnips? Crust of a soft goat cheese? Call me
      crazy, but the colour purple comes to mind. Do not ask me why. Be that as it
      may, I am an instant fan.
    • Taste
      Very creamy
      on the palate with soft spices. Now I clearly recognize Tomatin, although the
      profile remains somewhat atypical. The spices become louder and support the
      fruit, that kicks in in full force now. Tea, slightly bitter. Icing sugar. Yes,
      this Tomatin would be quite difficult to spot if tasted blind. It is undercover
      (ok, I have seen way too many movies lately).
    • Finish
      Long finish
      on spices and sultanas with some liquorice at the death.
