    not sure how many sherry casks were used. I had a lot of bourbon cask in my glas. some honey, some vanilla. some sulphur, a bit meaty as well, together with the nice ABV this did bring in some notes I really do like. finish was nice, warm and long lasting. tasted a bit young but still fine. (WSZ18)

    For me it was not enjoyable and rather uninteresting. tastes of nutty bread gone off

  4. Adamos scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    very intresting strong possition, it seems to me that Tommatin has got this own style of sweet and dry whisky at the same time.

    • Taste

      a bit of sponge cake mixed with fresh fruits, vanilla

  6. Falnor scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Side by side with an other Tomatin CS with the new looks from 2018. Not so different. The 2018 is more on lemons, the first batch has more cookies.
    • Nose
      Lots of grains with sweetness. Oatmeal breakfast cookies, muesli or whole wheat cornflakes, cruesli with caramel. Young bananas which are peeled for a long time. Cookie dough with vanilla and chocolate springles. Butter with cinnamon and some lemons.
    • Taste
      Spicy stuff with that high abv. First a peppery and bitter start with orange peel, unripe red berries ,chilli chocolate and still oatmeal cookies.
      Still too close to barley and grains with a burned sugared coating. Gingerbread and lemons.
    • Finish
      It's mostly straw, young green wood and ginger. Not at all what a fruity dram Tomatin can become after time.

    • Nose
      As crazy as it sounds, it actually smells of meatloaf right away, and that's just as much in the official tasting notes. The whisky smells absolutely unusual for me at first. The sherry sweetness is visible in the background, but it first dominate hearty (food) odors. He even has something acidic, so that the association arises after ginger, but without the corresponding sharpness. Gradually, the smell "normalizes" in the direction of sweet sherry.
      The nose does not change with water for me.
    • Taste
      The high alcohol content according to warm and powerful start.
      Significantly sweeter and fresher than the nose with citrus fruits.
      With water, a little more aromas come up against the strong alcohol. The citrus fruits are accompanied by a slight nuttiness.
    • Finish
      With and without water a bit metallic on the palate. Here is probably a certain youth.

  9. Sandman scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Caramel, cookie dough, peach, butter, raisins, orange and hint of grass.
    • Taste
      Fudge, orange, peach, caster sugar, butter, old bread and nuts
    • Finish
      Medium, malted grains, a touch of lemon, raisins and nuts
