    Last night was a pop and pour and I was mitigated by the result, might be because it was a side by side with a Springbank LB 10 2020. Might have pushed my luck there. Will revisit this week

    I only had one sample of this whisky, this in advance.

    A very interesting whisky with a very good price-performance ratio in my opinion.

    I would not be averse to a large bottle here and would possibly buy it.
    Thanks Dramtime for the sample.

      The sherry is only subtle. Hardly any sweetness.
      It has something "meaty" about it, I don't know how to describe it any other way.
      I also guess ginger and possibly allspice.
      Very interesting. Wass doesn't change much.

      Very strong. Hold 57.5%.
      Here now a distinct sweetness, sticky notes and citrus fruits.
      The aromas come out much more clearly with water.
      I taste some exotic fruit, but I can't define it.
      It also gets nutty towards the end

      Not very long and a bit metallic. Probably not very old yet.

  5. Alexandr_Zhurov did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Strong and very young whisky, it does not have a powerful aroma as in Glenfarclas 105, but it is more pleasant to drink. The aroma is soft, lacks saturation, dry, even dusty, dried apricots, dry fruits, sweet, some berries, a burning and sweet taste, a hot warming finish.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    In the nose, alcohol is really to strong. In body and finish it's much better and more balanced.

      Spicy, pepper, cinnamon, combined with fruitiness, plums. Really stinging alcolhol now, quite uncomfortable.

      Pretty strong, some pepper. Sweer, honey, caramel. A bit of orange. Some peach as well. Pretty full taste

      medium-length, very spicy finish; dry aftertaste;

  8. Achany scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    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)

  9. Deloti scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

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

  10. 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.
