  2. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A young whisky indeed showing its distinct distillery character.
    Although bottled at high cask strength, the alcohol is already well
    integrated. However, this Tomatin could have been left in the cask for
    some more years as the immature notes of yeast and leaven are a bit
    disruptive for my taste. Water may help.

    I thank Caminneci - Wine & Spirit Partner for the sample!

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with fruit, pears and a significant amount of
      vanilla. Fresh malt arrives with notes of yeast and a whiff of caramel,
      along with floral tones and a hint of sourness in the back. Obviously
      youngish, however, the alcohol is already well integrated and not
      pungent at all.
    • Taste
      Bold, strong and nicely sweet on the palate with lingering vanilla
      cream, fresh green fruit and butterscotch. This is complemented by a
      significant amount of hot spice, pepper, oak, tannins and a whiff of
      heather. Immature, sligthly sour and leaven-like notes come through but
      again, the high alcohol strength is not dominating here.
    • Finish
      A medium-length finish with delicate fruity and malty flavours, along
      with subtle floral notes. Sweet barley with a touch of dry oak on the
      tail.

      WITH WATER: Vibrant and refreshing on the nose with more
      fruit, pears, grapefruit and a hint of melon's coming through. Sweet,
      creamy and fruity on the palate with still a lot of spiciness, leading
      to a medium-length and warming finish with delicate fruits and subtle
      malt.

  3. JohannesB scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Again a very young malt from the C & S Dram Collection, which allows the exploration of the Brennereicharakters. Despite the young age there are no disturbing influences, the barrel was well selected. For my taste too much yeast and butter, a little more flavor from the barrel would be desirable.
    • Nose
      Buttercookies, vanilla sugar, pears, malt and oatmeal with milk and sugar. Later, the grain is strengthened and a yeast note is added. It is clear, here is a young malt in the glass, it clearly dominates the Brennereicharakter. The alcohol is well integrated and does not bother.
    • Taste
      Very buttery and fruity on the tongue. Mirabelles, pears, physalis and some coconut fat. The yeast is back, too. The alcohol is also remarkably well integrated, especially for the tender age.
    • Finish
      Gentle, slightly oily and comparatively short. It dominates the vanilla and a buttery mouthfeel together with a restrained fruitiness. At the very end a bit of metallic youth flashes through, but that does not bother us.
