Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 2008 SMWS 11.32
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points
- Beautiful bourbon whisky. Very straight and fruited. Too bad he was allowed out of the barrel so early. Here I would think, what's gone right
- N: Glycerine and [green] Silly String.
T: Comes in youthfully with a spirit giving off plenty of fruity esters - that’s fusel alcohols & organic acids formed from yeasts in the fermentation process, as i understand it.
F: It may be young but it comes with a competent finish.
C: I wonder why they bottled this after only 8 years? Was the cask beginning to overpower the spirit already? Maybe it was just right for picking at eight years. This Tomatin is good like Balblair can be at a young age, though both can be stella much, much older.
- SMWS tasting notes:
An acrobatic spectacular, as fresh and vibrant aromas of cut grass, pomegranate and soft peach danced in the air high above us. Down below at audience level sweet butter pastry, spicy cardamom and Werther’s Originals provided the ringside entertainment. Then a sensational demonstration of salted toffee and cinnamon with a curious note of freshly cleaned woolly jumper with floral hints from the washing powder. Following a lively and exuberant burst of new wood the grand finale featured very dark chocolate and sticky toffee pudding as our senses jumped to their feet for a rapturous standing ovation.
DRINKING TIP: A post-show celebration.
