  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very nice and complex Tomatin.
    • Nose
      Overripe apples. Beeswax. Custard powder and cake mix. Flowery notes as well. Honey-lavender.
    • Taste
      Very waxy and creamy. Toasted oak. Lots of vanilla, but also tropical fruit of pineapple and lychees. Bananas too. Toffee.
    • Finish
      Long. The juicy fruity sweetness remains for a long time. Nutmeg, clove and hints of camphor. At the end some salt.

    Very good fruity Tomatin.
    The fruit is however not as complex and greedy as sometimes.

      In the mouth we stay on the fruits, which are not as exuberant as sometimes.

    [May, 2009]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 109 Euro in July, 2007.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state "simply great".

    Classic - but it's not a problem when it's good!

      Fruits in shambles, peaches, apricots, mirabelles in particular. A little fruit tree wood and green leaves. White chocolate, flowers, wax.
