  1. nallacam scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful tomato from the 70s. From this time there are always pearls that particularly suit my taste.
    Even if it is a little darker in color, I was more likely to go to Littlemill or an Irish for blind tasting, especially as far as the nose is concerned. I think it's nice to see that there are always bottlings that stand out. The current Ben Nevis (TWA, Spring 2020) is also a wonderful example of this.

    The nose is special here.

      Sweetness and fruit dominate in the beginning. Dried mango, licorice, clove, teak, honey, beeswax, cherry, caramelized apples, tart tatin, red fruits, pleasant alcohol note, cognac, roasted almonds, tropical fruit notes, dark biscuits
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very strong start, creamy and intense. Slight sharpness, the fruitiness fades into the background, wood aromas take over. Spice drawer, chocolate, tobacco.
    • Finish

      Long, dry, creamy, spicy

    The T of
    Tomatin is for Top! A bottle like it was recently sold for 320 EUR at McTears
    and at the time of writing Hedonism Wines in England still had a bottle on
    offer for (drumroll) 600 EUR. Thank the Maker for this big sample from my buddy
    • Nose
      Lift off! A
      fruit bomb on the nose from the very start. Great mix of dried and juicy fruit,
      very tropical. Mango, papaya, kiwi, pineapple, banana, but also orchard fruit.
      Soft spices with hardly any oak to speak of, which is quite surprising after
      almost four decades. Outstanding!
    • Taste
      almost fatty, and round. Very fruity again. Powerful too. Well seasoned. It
      does show some oak now, but in a greatly supporting way, definitely not
      dominant. While mildly drying, it does remain juicy enough to make your mouth
      water. This is pure enjoyment! I refuse to add water (sorry, I just cannot
      bring myself to dilute it).
    • Finish
      The finish,
      which remains utterly fruity and tropical, should have been a little longer in
      my book.
