  1. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I liked that quite well, beautiful, well-balanced and uncomplicated malt with age for a reasonable price. That makes sense! 84 points. Depending on the shape of the day could also be at 85, somehow delicious ... Notes from an online chat tasting.
    • Nose
      First slightly fruity sour, again slightly angegoren, in addition to malt and a little Schoki. First let it breathe. Anyway, no alcohol in the nose here! So the peace has really done him good! Lemon juice, a few peaches, the mint I have now too. Add some dry fruits and some chocolate. It gets a bit yeasty, but at the same time fuller. Lots of peach compote, barely lemon.
    • Taste
      Jo, that's whisky, finally! Nice approach, slightly oily mouthfeel, wood, dark honey, chocolate and the orange marmalade I can confirm. In the second sip now also clearly acid, which seems to come off the barrel, nicely integrated, more chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium long to long, very warm, the sweetness goes slowly with the wood freight and leaves walnuts in the mouth. In the second sip now also some liquorice, nevertheless a little sweeter than in the first sip, nevertheless dry.

  2. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Powerful 18-year-old standard, with intense cocoa and chocolate flavors. With 60 to 65 € reasonable in the price.
    • Nose
      Lemon and orange, strong alcohol with fresh mint, a bit earthy, malt and fine vanilla
    • Taste
      Nice, strong, orange marmalade, chocolate and cocoa, spicy with pepper and oak.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, warms pleasant, cocoa and Zarbitterschokolade.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Very tasty (especially the nose is my case, but taste and finish are also great), goes in the direction of noble-dignified, you notice the adult age. With 60-65 € not a bargain, but fair priced, at 18er OA just drop me Knockando and Glenlivet, which are similar delicious, but cheaper.
    • Nose
      wow, cool - mint, lemon cream, dark chocolate ... so quasi-filled dark chocolate with lemon / peppermint cream, my favorite sweets, in the place it can actually stop, stay that way ... well, then comes an aromatic, dry woody note, with some orange behind, but if I put the glass down again for a while, rest and sniff again, there's a new batch of delicious After Eight (or whatever brand you prefer) ... mjam.
    • Taste
      intense cocoa, feels in the mouth like liquid dark chocolate, with some pepper, sawdust and a splash of lemon - sometimes delicious!
    • Finish
      long, warm, dry, bittersweet, cocoa ... correct, very long ... and a light (good) brandy note

  4. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    yes - a high quality dram with good alcohol content for a standard bottling, no junk, nothing special - except especially very boring - just not my taste of style -the lemon kills me - behind it with a lot of effort I find - what I like
    • Nose
      mild oranges and citrus notes rise from a glass with a lush dram - I had to pour more because the nose is so restrained. A little malt and some oak - a touch of mint-vanilla sugar deep in the glass, the citrus notes are very dominant in the foreground, oranges form a fruity fresh frame, oranges and mint oil bring even more freshness and liveliness - even with a drop of water nothing new happens here more
    • Taste
      typical classic Bourbon keg, lemon, lemon peel, citrus oil fill the mouth, a little bit of acidity, light vegetable bitterness and spice mixes under the acid, the otherwise wine-like sourness of Tomatin I can only find as a delicate touch - the keg is stronger. The texture is nicely smooth - perfectly integrated the alcohol is in the nose - on the palate I feel it still slightly - but I like quite well peps up the dram on something, I feel the one-sided citruslastig from the finish, I feel a little
    • Finish
      slightly bitter, citrusy, dry, fresh oaky - in the herbal way, subtle sweetness that always remains behind the acidity of barrel and raw brandy

  6. Lorion scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty, but somewhat alcoholic in the nose. 82 points
    • Nose
      Nutty, dry sherry. An alcohol sting. Pastries. Dried fruits. Spice drawer.
    • Taste
      Full and sparkling. Very fruity. Raisins, oranges, chocolate. Strawberries, oak freight.
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry and fruity.

  7. larswehmeier scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      The sherry is right there. Sweet and fruity. Then the age makes itself felt. Notes of oak and spices rise. There is actually the often promised cinnamon! Unfortunately, I can not find the official "hint of smoke".
    • Taste
      Immediately sweet, but initially not very fruity. Mild and pleasant. In the start surprisingly fresh for his age. The heaviness begins late in the direction of departure. Here come the dark fruits.
    • Finish
      Warm and sweet. Less dry than expected.

  9. Nosingbär scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Becomes more pleasantly creamy with progressing time in the glass in the button, sweet and sour berry fruits in front of the oaky, nutty background. Solid 18-year-old, justifiable for the price. The younger ones are too sweet, too berry, this one is more balanced and has more spice. 86/100
    • Nose
      Sweet, spicy-oaky. Pleasant nose. Black and red currants, honey ... but there is much more, complex nose. Kiwi, gentle tanine, hazelnut crisp and er sun cream: D Fruity, sweet, tart nutty, oaky spicy nose. Complex, you always want to reinriechen and explore. The oak flavor always floats pleasantly in the background. Dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      sweet, but also harsh and soon comes just the oak spicy one has in the nose, even strengthened in the key. Hazelnuts and dark forest berries, slightly resinous tannins, very subtle sweetness. Spicy, sweet forest honey. Red grapes.
    • Finish
      tart wild berry notes, oak, some beeswax.

  10. Zapala_86 scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Tomatin 18 yo Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish 46% vol.

    Non-chill filtered, natural colour, final maturation in Oloroso Sherry Butts, fully matured whisky from Tomatin. Pleasant bottle design, a great wooden stopper with carved boar. Everything looks elegant and modern. How does the bottle content turn out? I was surprised.

    Nose: for a start, sweetness, fruit, very intense aroma, no striking alcohol, mild, Sherry elements appear, we get a lot of dried fruit, nice cherries, raisins, dark chocolate, notes of oak and caramel begin to appear. I gave her time in a glass, let her sit in it, the effects are more and more interesting. Honey appears, it becomes slightly buttery, you can feel pralines, nuts, baked apples, oranges, dark grapes and spices, including cinnamon and ginger. I find a note of lemongrass. Complex and rich aroma changing during the time it stay in a glass.

    Taste: the first impact is - intense honey and raisins, further fruits, cherries, raspberries, oily and malty whisky, a dried plum appears, followed by a bit of oak, ginger and cloves. Chocolate and walnuts are still present. The initial sweetness becomes slightly dry.

    Finish: warming, long, chocolate-fruity, slightly dry and spicy

    A great and complex smell, a taste to which I cannot have any complain, finish is the right length, whisky is very well matured. Personally, I like it very much, perfect for autumn evenings, Christmas family gatherings or sipping for pure relaxation. As you will have the opportunity to try it, maybe you will not share my opinion, but the chance that you like it, in my opinion is quite possible
