Color
Burnished
Nose

Erstmal leicht fruchtig sauer, wieder leicht angegoren, dazu Malz und etwas Schoki. Erstmal etwas atmen lassen. Hier jedenfalls kein Alkohol in der Nase! Also die Ruhe hat ihm echt gutgetan! Zitronensaft, ein paar Pfirsiche, die Minze hab ich jetzt auch. Dazu ein paar Trockenfrüchte und etwas Schokolade. Erwärmt wird er etwas hefig, gleichzeitig aber auch voller. Viel Pfirsichkompott, kaum noch Zitrone.

Taste

Jo, das ist doch mal Whisky, endlich! Schöner Antritt, leicht öliges Mundgefühl, Holz, dunkler Honig, Schokolade und auch die Orangenmarmelade kann ich bestätigen. Im zweiten Schluck jetzt auch deutlich Säure, die eindeutig vom Fass zu kommen scheint, schön integriert, mehr Schokolade.

Finish

Mittellang bis lang, stark wärmend, die Süße geht langsam mit der Holzfracht und hinterlässt Walnüsse im Mund. Im zweiten Schluck jetzt auch etwas Lakritze, trotzdem ein wenig süßer als im ersten Schluck, dennoch trocken.

Comments

Das gefiel mir jetzt schon ganz gut, schöner, gut ausbalancierter und unkomplizierter Malt mit Alter zum vernünftigen Preis. Das ergibt Sinn! 84 Punkte. Je nach Tagesform könnte der auch bei 85 liegen, irgendwie lecker...

Zitrone und Orange, kräftiger Alkohol mit frischer Minze, etwas erdiges, Malz und feine Vanille

Taste

Schön, kräftig, Orangenmarmelade, Schokolade und Kakao, würzig mit Pfeffer und Eiche.

Finish

Mittel bis lang, wärmt angenehm, Kakao und Zarbitterschokolade.

Comments

Kräftiger 18jähriger Standard, mit intensiven Kakao und Schokoaromen. Mit 60 bis 65 € angemessen im Preis.

Als Neuling brauch' ich keine Signatur.

wow, geil - Minze, Zitronencreme, Zartbitterschokolade... also quasi gefüllte Zartbitterschokolade mit Zitronen-/Pfefferminzcreme, mein Lieblingssüßkram, an der Stelle kann's eigentlich aufhören, bleib so... na gut, dann kommt noch 'ne aromatische, trockene Holznote, mit etwas Orange hinterher, aber wenn ich das Glas wieder 'ne Weile hinstelle, ruhen lasse und nochmal schnuppere, gibt's eine neue Ladung lecker After Eight (oder welche Marke auch immer man bevorzugt)... mjam.

Taste

intensiver Kakao, fühlt sich im Mund an wie flüssige dunkle Schokolade, mit etwas Pfeffer, Sägespänen und einem Spritzer Zitrone - auch mal lecker!

Finish

lang, warm, trocken, zartbitter, Kakao... korrigiere, sehr lang... und 'ne leichte (gute) Weinbrandnote

Comments

Sehr lecker (vor allem das Näschen ist mein Fall, aber Geschmack und Abgang sind auch toll), geht in Richtung edel-gediegen, man merkt ihm das erwachsene Alter an. Mit 60-65€ zwar kein Schnäppchen, aber fair bepreist, an 18er-OA fallen mir grade mal Knockando und Glenlivet ein, die ähnlich lecker, aber preiswerter sind.

Nose

milde Orangen und Zitrusnoten steigen aus einem Glas mit einem üppigen Dram  - ich musste mehr einschenken, weil die Nase so zurückhaltend ist. Etwas Malz und etwas Eiche - ein Hauch von Minz-Vanillezucker tief im Glas, die Zitrusnoten sind sehr dominant im Vordergrund, Orangen bilden einen fruchtig frischen Rahmen, Orangen und Minzöl bringen noch mehr Frische und Spritzigkeit - auch mit einem Tropfen Wasser passiert hier nichts Neues mehr

Taste

typisches klassisches Bourbonfass, Zitrone, Zitronenschale, Zitrusöl füllen den Mund, etwas Eichensäure, leichte pflanzliche Bitterkeit und Würze mischt sich unter die Säure, die sonst typische weinartige Säuerlichkeit von Tomatin kann ich nur noch als zarte Note finden - das Fass ist stärker. Die Textur ist schön glatt - perfekt eingebunden ist der Alkohol zwar in der Nase - am Gaumen spüre ich ihn noch leicht - gefällt mir aber ganz gut peppt den Dram etwas auf, mir ist der zu einseitig zitruslastig vom Finish spüre ich auch wenig

Finish

leicht bitter, Zitruszesten, trocken, frisch eichig - auf die pflanzlich herbe Art, subtile Süße die immer hinter der Säure von Fass und Rohbrand zurückbleibt

Comments

ja - ein qualitativ hochwertiger Dram mit gutem Alkoholgehalt für eine Standardabfüllung, keine Fehlnoten, nix Besonderes - außer vllt besonders langweilig - einfach nicht mein Geschmack der Style -die Zitrone erschlägt mich - dahinter mit viel Mühe finde ich - was mir gefällt

Nose

Süß, würzig-eichig. Angenehme Nase. Schwarze und rote Johannisbeeren, Honig… aber da ist noch viel mehr, komplexe Nase. Kiwi, sanfte Tanine, Haselnusskrokant und äh Sonnencreme :D

Fruchtige, süße, herb nussige, eichig würzige Nase. Komplex, man will immer wieder reinriechen und erkunden. Die Eichenwürze schwebt immer merkbar angenehm im Hintergrund. Zartbitterschokolade.

Taste

süß, aber auch herb und bald kommt genau die Eichenwürze die man in der Nase hat, sogar verstärkt im Taste. Haselnüsse und dunkle Waldbeeren, leicht harzige Tanine, sehr dezente Süße. Würziger, süßer Waldhonig. Rote Weintrauben.

Finish

herbe Waldbeerennoten, Eiche, etwas Bienenwachs.

Comments

Wird mit fortschreitender Zeit im Glas im Taste sehr angenehm cremig, süß-saure Beerenfrüchte vor dem eichigen, nussigen Hintergrund. Solider 18-Jähriger, für den Preis rechtfertigbar. Die Jüngeren sind mir zu süß, zu beerig, der hier ist balancierter und hat mehr Würze. 86/100

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

Nose

Vibrant and fresh. Baked apples, honeydew melon, butterscotch, honey and vanilla are reinforced with sherry notes – dried fruits, raisins, leather and tobacco – but they’re light, delicate and garden-fresh. There’s an underlying nuttiness of walnuts running throughout the whisky and the whole nose is very crisp and lively.

Taste

Unctuous mouthfeel at 46%. Quite malty, but sweetness still prevails with candied applies, peaches and an assortment of dried fruits in the mix. Honey, chocolate, light leather and crystalline ginger all play their part and make for a gentle but well defined dram.

Finish

Medium to long and quite malty with sweet toffee and some bitter spices of cinnamon and pepper.

Comments

Tomatin 18 year old is both fruity and malty with a very sympathetic sherry element that suits the style and age of the whisky well, without ever taking over nor feeling heavy handed. The nose and initial palate is quite fruity, but this makes way for a fairly malty and spicy finish. A game of two halves as it were.
