  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very atypical and surprising. Enthusiasm: Nose 2/5 Mouth and finish 3/5 Whisky n ° 1567
    • Nose
      Hyper fresh, mineral. It's young! 17 years ? The barrel is tired or what? Plant and a little unfinished. A little nagging. Cereals.
    • Taste
      It's sweet, balanced, rather round. We find cereals and low sugar fruits.
    • Finish
      Round and sweet.

    Tomatin 17 yo 1997/2014 (48.3%, Whisky-Fässle, hogshead)
    Very nice colour, this one should be totally au naturel. Colour: very
    pale white wine. Nose: I really like to be so close to the distillate,
    provided it’s not immature. That’s not the case at all here, as it comes
    with lovely notes of cut apples, a touch of smoke (garden fire), mashed
    sweet potatoes and even pumpkins, then more green apples, rhubarb and
    lemons. A touch of engine oil as well, all for the better. Oh and
    mangos. Great nose, really complex and totally spirit-driven. Mouth:
    perfect! Ultra-clean, with a perfect tempo, blending fresh fruits,
    cereals and a few tiny phenolic/tertiary notes. Fresh malted barley,
    oranges, a little marzipan, cut apples, some candy sugar, papayas…
    Finish: medium length. Loses steam a bit, becoming slightly spirity.
    Funny notes of Turkish delights in the aftertaste. Or Gewurztraminer.
    Comments: all very good, it just lost one or two points because of the
    finish that was a tad ‘hot’. SGP:641 - 85 points.

    Tomatin 17 yo 1997
    (48,3%, Whisky-Fässle 2014, hogshead)

    Nose: a slightly green and gristy kind of Tomatin, close to the raw ingredients. Malty notes, sweet notes of apple, peach, melon and caramelized pumpkin. Not a young kind of sweetness though, and it’s balanced by soft earthy touches, a bit of liquorice and delicate smoke. A kind of dustiness / oiliness which works well too. Mouth: again an oily, old-style profile. A malty core, enriched with fruits… in a garage. Apple peelings, unripe pineapples, hints of candy sugar. Lemon zest, white pepper, liquorice again. Fruit pits. Delicate herbal touches. Finish: medium long, still fruity but the zesty and spicy notes become prominent.

    A really pleasant, un-modern Tomatin, which is a nice surprise. Around € 85, still available from Whisky-Fässle.

    Score: 87/100
