Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1990 WhB

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.37 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A 'greenish' Tomatin with a difficult profile. I would have expected more after 24 years in a cask.
    • Nose
      Leafy notes intermingled with cut grass and heather. Granny Smith apples. Wet stones and touch of chalk. Sandalwood as well. Later on nettle and a little mint. Not the most active sherry cask around. No sherry influences at all.
    • Taste
      Now more on gentle citrus fruit of kiwi, lemon and peel zest. Followed with 'greenish' aldehydic notes of artichokes, thyme and barley sugar. Bog-myrtle. Eucalyptus, bitter chocolate and coffee green at the background. This is not an easy whisky.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Spices of white pepper. Liquorice. Pine at the end.

  2. Bishlouk did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Seems to be a split cask with

  3. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Single Whiskybase sample.
    • Nose
      Pear drops, green apple. Some baking spices - nutmeg, cinnamon. Husky - chaff, mash. Limestone. A bit spirity. A little wood.
    • Taste
      Stewed apples and pears. Buttery pastry. Honey. Tobacco. Dried hops. Oak spice and menthol.
    • Finish
      Longish. More menthol.

  5. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Compared with Tomatin 1987 CM  #495
    • Nose
      Juicy fruits - apple, pear, ripe melon and peach. Some chocolate, spices, apple pie, orange pulp and pastry.
    • Taste
      Grassy, apple, a bit spirity, some tobacco leafs, wood smoke and chocolate with mint.

      Ok, but still weak for a 24 year old whisky. Probably due to the refill cask.
    • Finish
      Cookies, fruity and spices. With water more bitter fruits.
