    Pleasant Highlands whisky, clear wine barrel influence (other than sherry), lighter but full-bodied. Recommendable whisky, but not for the price. A decent 7/10, but I wouldn't give more than 300 euros (tasting in 2021).
    • Nose
      Malt, whisky arranged, sweet, wine note, lots of nuts, vanilla, licorice, anise. Cherry, wooden furniture, apricot, bubble gum. In fact, the smell of strongly baked meringue with orange liqueur with roasted almonds and nuts.
    • Taste
      Quite alcoholic, lots of fruit, citrus, apricots, peach, cherry, grapes, a mixture of roasted nuts with caramel, a clear wine barrel, oak barrel, honey, vanilla, licorice, orange with clove.
    • Finish
      Over time, more fruits appear, including orange peel, thick apricots, chocolate, slightly plasticine, oak, mint?

    Peach syrup, American cherry, chewy barley sweetness, and woody furniture.
    Seawater iodine, apricot-flavored bubble gum, light smoke, dry soil, fresh grape juice, voluminous alcohol, long fruity finish.

    Speaking of Tomartin's taste, it has a slightly chemical fruity reminiscent of syrup and gum, but it is not too strong, but it is thick, dry, and lightly smoky and thick.

    A fruity wonderful Martin with the influence of the wine barrel or the aftertaste of the grape juice, but not too sweet and full of fruit juice.

    At the time, Tomartin, which was often released, was mainly Sherry Cask, and some of them had a strong sulfur odor that was described as Sulfur.

    However, this bottle did not have it, and before the finish, it seemed to have been aged in a refilled sherry cask, with little influence from the refilled bourbon casks or barrels.

    At the time, I wanted to drink Bourbon Cask's 70's Tomartin, and it tasted just like it, but I think it would be great to drink it again.

    The flavor of this strain is still popular, and there are several bottlers who have arrived in Irish for a similar taste and released it.

    One of Tomartin's best bottles in me was delicious Tomartin.

    This all-around amazing tomato woke my interest in sublime whisky. After many years I can almost recall the taste of these golden drops. Truly a reference whisky in my world.
