Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1990 SMWS 11.27

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of points

  1. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This is the second usage of 11.27. There is a US market bottling from 2003 (https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/133386/tomatin-1978-smws-1127).

    What (as has happened before) SMWS can lose track of numbering if there is a large time gap and not realise a number has already been used.

    Thus you have:
    11:26 bottled Jan 2003 (European/Japan 70cl release)
    11:27 bottled 2003 for US Market only (750ml)

    Then for the next European release in 2006 they continued numbering from the last one they had records for, hence this:

    11.27 bottled Sep 2006 (70cl)

    Curiously the strength of both the 1978 750ml US 11.27 and this 1990 70cl release is 54.6, but this looks to be one of those coincidences.

  2. FernetBranco did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes: 

    "This enormous distillery is owned by the Japanese, and despite being the largest, does not operate on full capacity. This is an exceptionally old example from a hogshead, with an attractive gingery gold colour. The first nose is heady: a rich honey, spicy wood and possibly some strawberry. The taste is very distinctive, with honey again, more spice and a toasty finish. With water, slightly more floral notes come up (honeysuckle?) alongside some definite paint aromas. The taste also has some honey in there, along with a woodiness that betrays its age. Old enough to have picked up many eccentric ways!"
