Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1977 WW

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.94 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A zesty Tomatin with a spicy edge. A little too bitter to my taste.
    • Nose
      Lemon curd. Cut grass and some malty notes. Aniseed. Soft touches of kiwi fruit and orange peel.
    • Taste
      Quite punchy with chilli peppers, lemon and lime. Zesty. Later on bitterness of pink grapefruit. Some tannins at the background.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dry. Lots of black pepper and cloves. Paprika.

  2. Falnor scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Lots of herbs, warm fruit, cinnamon, orange, tea
    • Taste
      I expected more after other tomatins. (mostly 1976) The tea en oranges are there with a lot of dry woody notes, but I hoped for more fruit. Some herbs from your local garden, vanilla
    • Finish
      Medium long, bitter oak. A warm whisky.

  3. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 90 points Super Administrator

    Fresh apple pie with cinnamon. A treasure imo.

  4. magic_slim scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Good whisky, but I had expected much more from a 1977 Tomatin.
    • Nose
      Warming - surprisingly hot and alcoholic at first nosing. Plenty of concentrated black tea and herbal notes as well as weaker notes of oranges.
    • Taste
      Dry, dusty, rather spirity and hot with notes of tea at first mouthfeel. A little thin I would say but tasty. A lot of wood with slightly bitter components. Sweet oranges in the background.
    • Finish
      Medium long on dusty and oaky notes.
