Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1994 Cl

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.58 points

  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Quite a lowlandish appearance on the nose: green apple, butterscotch, honey, vanilla and some lime. A slight herbal hay-like note in the background. Water brings out baked apples and whipped cream.

    Taste: clean, digestive biscuits, again the butterscotch, honey and vanilla, more creamy with water.

    Finish: short to medium in length, clear vanilla, honey, and a complete absense of bitterness.

    Beautiful lighter and delicate whisky, with a fairly complex nose considering the 'lightness' of the overall experience. Very well balanced and for me clearly underrated.

    A whisky with the right average, what
    • Nose
      light, vanilla, peppery, green apples, pears. refill, kind re-re-refill cask? not complex. does not reflect his age. With a little airing, the profile is more pleasantly fruity / vanilla, softer and less spicy / woody
    • Taste
      Nice, well done, but very classic. Delicate, fruity, floral and vanilla. The mouth is subtle and sweet. The length is average. The whole lack of depth. One would expect more complex, considering the age.
    • Finish
      Malty vanilla. a bit short

  3. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Light and friendly aperitif  style dram. Not so complex, but pleasant whilst chatting with friends.
    • Nose
      Quite crisp and mineral, almost like a Muscadet. It has notes of chalk, limestone, lemon juice and zest, grass, mint, and just a little bit of sweet impressions from barley and vanilla. Overall it's not overly complex, but with pleasant characteristics of the spirit. 
    • Taste
      Gets more herbal, sweeter and and, a bit perfumed and soapy. It's not unpleasant though... The fruitiness is more on apple juice, with still a hint of lemon squeezed into it. Then there is plenty or coriander, mint, pepper and maybe even some rose petals. The vanilla gets more to the front, just as honey and barley.
    • Finish
      Gets quite peppery, but doesn't become dry at all. In the short finale, you mainly find barley, grass and a bit of vanilla.

  5. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Excellent. Not overly complex for 21 yo but a style I really enjoy. Single Whiskybase sample.
    • Nose
      Limestone, chalk. Hay. Grist. Vanilla. Pastries. Newspaper. A little herbal note (mint) and some menthol. Bandages and antiseptic? 
    • Taste
      Super clean. Sweet barley. Lots of fruit - apples, banana. Some tropical fruits too. Creamy. Honey. Late oak. 
    • Finish
      Medium long. Fruity. Toasty oak.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very classic profile, which also lacks (logically) character. Well done, but far from unforgettable.
    • Nose
      Vanilla malt, sweet honey, and some fruits in the background (apple, grape, lemon). Classic, "simple", but the kind of nose that has proven itself.
    • Taste
      Vanilla malt is here also very present. It brings a sweet delicacy to the whole, counterbalanced by the acidulated fruits (apple and lemon). A pinch of sweet spices looms after a while.
    • Finish
      Short. A slight fruity bitterness appears, while the sweet spices go out slowly.
