    Tomatin was the first distillery I visited, which means that the distillery has a special place in the heart. Can't remember where I got this sample from, but one thing is clear: this is a good one.

      Really really great. Smell of sweet red fruit.

      Full fruity body. This dram can use more then 1 or drops of water. It becomes milder en more gentle.

      Slightly bitter medium long to long finish. Shame about the somewhat bitter finish. I sweeter finish would have made this an excellent dram!

    Nose:
    Very sweet but yet delicate notes of red fruits, red berries blended to a smoothie. Some sawdust and pencil shavings. After a few minutes there is some vanilla and toffee to be found. A very good nose.
    Water makes this whisky open up more, there is more hay and dry grass notes then. But you don't need to put much water in it (I used 3ml on a 35ml pour).

    Taste:
    Sweet and mellow. Warming red fruits. Like cherries on alcohol with ice-cream. With water it get's even more sweet and better.

    Body:
    Smooth as silk

    Finish:
    Medium - long length. Again those sweet red berries. A bitter hint, but mainly a nice sweet red fruit taste.

    Price:
    A bit hefty, but the quality makes it quite good. I bought this bottle for €105,-. I didn't want to, but I got a sip from a sample bottle at my retailer and I was sold immediatly.

    Presentation:
    Nice and classy.

    Comments:
    A expensive, but really really good one!
