Whisky Reviews for Tomatin Five Virtues Series - Fire
21 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.03 points
- Flavor is a little bit sharp with notes of malt, alcohol and little fruits. After some time becomes sweet with flowers. Taste has notes of malt, nuts and spices (hot pepper) but becomes weak after some time. Finish is tart, very warming but short.
- Tasted the complete elements series with my friend Falnor, april 2018.
Fire, Water, Metal, Wood, Earth, with the whiskies combined... i am captain planet?
sweet, fried butter, apples
salty edge, bit young / spirity, biscuits
nothing bad here, but a bit boring since it delivers nothing exciting.
- according to the bottle:
Fire - HEAVILY CHARRED OAK
Nose –Creamy butterscotch with citrus and winter spices.
Taste –Sweet apple pie with a light dusting of cinnamon.
Finish –Slightly dry with a delicate spicy finish.
- Tight start that needs some water resulting in evident influence of the charred cask, sweetness and a welcome fruitiness.
- This series is very well done in the eyes of marketing, sadly the taste doesn quite deliver. Nothing wrong about this one, but also nothing special.
Cotton candy, vanilla and a slight bitterness to start with. Also green bananas. Perhaps this dram needs some more time.
Very malty but also middle of the road. Vanilla, honey a bit of pepper from the alcohol could discribe a lot of whisky.
Gets more towards candy and caramalised apples.
Sweet and malty core remaiins the same.
- This is a liquid dessert and very different from the Wood. Less complex but equally fun.
The nose is fresh and caramelized at the same time. Fresh citrusy and honey notes on the one hand, toffee apples and freshly baked sugar waffles on the other. Meringue that just left the oven with some almond shavings on top. White chocolate. Very good.
It is wonderfully oily, but surprisingly soft. Barely any spices, really. This is all sweetness and citrus notes. The sweetness again translates into meringue, white chocolate, sugared almonds, vanilla and some candied orange peel.
In the medium long finish, more citrusy notes appear, including some zest.
