  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A lovely well balanced Tomatin with a profile which unfortunately doesn't exist anymore.
    • Nose
      Starts with a lot of tropical fruit; pineapple, lychee and papaya. Later on more floral notes of camomile and lavender. Furniture treated with beeswax. Some mint as well. Whiff of smoke. Old skool 'dusty' nose.
    • Taste
      As always with these brown label G&M quite powerfull. Resinous. Orange marmalade. Peach. Also hints of butterscotch and fudge. Sawdust. Gingerbread.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Truckloads of cinnamon. Sandalwood. Pine. At the end more bitterness.

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    An ultra creamy dram without watery palate, a surprise!
    • Nose
      Banana and Christmas pudding, very creamy and some herbal notes.
    • Taste
      Cream, very very intense and clean, vanilla, flawless and not watery at all, there is some bitter oak but the palate is explosive at the beginning.
    • Finish
      Herbal, medium, more banana and cream.

  3. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Soft ginger biscuits and sun dried tomatoes, fluffy pancakes, chives, lemon balm, talc/chalk.
    T: Disappointing, weak dryish, chalky, malty, oily, [stick] woody arrival,… not much else. Too weak and convoluted to decipher.
    F: Sour, liquorice, vanilla & onion malt finish
    C: ‘Meh’
