  1. Falnor scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    The first nosing was alright, but this dram is not without flaws. Still great marketing.
    • Nose
      Clearly bourbon notes. Very creamy. A ligth malt with sugar and some dust. In the background some magnesium. Kinda young
    • Taste
      Starts a little bit of spirity. Granny smith and other fresh fruit. Young and sour grapefruit. Some grainy biscuits.
    • Finish
      Very short and bitter. A bit disappointing ending.

  18. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very nice, simple and easy like drinking. A different Tomatin. 
    • Nose
      Maltiness, fresh baked bread, vanilla, fruit like lemon and apples.
    • Taste
      Soft, with nice creamy vanilla notes,milk chocolade?   Marshmallows sweetness. Fruit like apples and pears.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Sweet spices, soft aftertaste, apples and pears again, lemon fruit. 

  19. RobIsrael scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Nose: Refined nose, some vanilla, some lemon, apples, malt, fresh bread. 

    Taste: Also soft, nice vanilla notes, some fruits like apples and pears. The casks are not dominating the spirit. 

    Finish: Medium, sweet, soft, fresh bread, fruity notes from apples, pears and lemon.

    Conclusion: This should be around 14 year, only first fill bourbon barrels are used. Excellent Tomatin. If you have never tried a modern Tomatin try this, around 55 euro is a good introduction to this lovely distillery.

  20. holborndrinker did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This expression is a recognition of  the distillery’s 12 copper stills and has been aged in first fill Bourbon barrels.  Limited to 6,000 bottles.  The packaging features work from abstract artist Eva Ullrich, who was asked to visually represent each of the five elements.
