  1. Daniel Hohleweg scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very pleasant malt
    • Nose
      Pleasant sherry sweetness, malagarosines, citrus notes, beautiful malt sweetness
    • Taste
      Sherrynoten remain present, raisins and berries, but also apples are present. In addition, there is a nice citrus note and well-integrated tannin of the barrel.
    • Finish
      The raisins remain relatively long.

    That brilliant man from whiskyfun.com does it again:

    Tomatin 2001/2016 (56.1%, OB for Cadenhead’s Switzerland, 7th anniversary, finished four years in PX, cask #34876)  That’s right, an OB for a Cadenhead’s shop, which goes to show that not everyone in the whisky industry is narrow-minded and, well, ultra-defensive these days. I find the idea of this bottling very joyful and refreshing, but let’s check the content… Which, BTW, is more double-maturation than just a simple aromat… I mean, a simple finishing. Colour: gold. Nose: ultra-smart. Blending caramelised walnut purée (that would be the sherry, whether PX or palomino) with Tomatin’s immaculate fruitiness could not not work, could it? Walnut cake with crystallised oranges and speculoos. Truly ‘world’! With water: a little ‘good sulphur’, saltpetre, musty old wine cellar, cigarette tobacco… All that is lovely. Mouth (neat): absolutely excellent. I’m usually suspicious of any quick-and-easy PX finishings, but again, this isn’t exactly a finishing. And I’m a sucker for anything reeking of walnuts (as nuts, liqueur, wine, syrup, cake, and even intravenously – I’m joking). With water: takes water very well. Walnuts, pu-erh tea, cigars, and a little thyme, perhaps. Finish: medium, with some walnuts and leather. Very leafy aftertaste, with even a little mustard. Comments: very smartly selected, Cadenhead Switzerland! And a total brainwave, this official independent bottling, so kudos to Tomatin too! SGP:461 - 89 points.
