  1. rottendon scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Darn it is delicious! Incredibly tasty, the mouth keeps what the nose promises. Good balance and a nice career. A real trip.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    I could have guessed that it was a tomato, I guessed Balblair. Tomatins don't necessarily have to be from 1976, they are still very good at that today!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Full nose immediately after pouring, yellow fruits, a lot of pears, mainly ripe and a hint of menthol. After a while, the first impression is a good fruit schnapps, still pear. With movement again menthol and now also malt. Vanilla also rises from the glass when warmed. Now it's moving away from pears, towards quinces, quince bread to be precise. There are also mineral notes.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sparkling start, it stays so fruity, the whole thing is placed in honey and at the back comes very dark toffee and a hint of tannins and again menthol.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish is medium long and strongly emphasizes the toffee and menthol.

    Excellent balanced and mature middle aged tomatin.
    At the same time malt, light fruits, vanilla, a few berries, from gooseberries to strawberries and raspberries.
    Also some grain, possibly porridge, grist sugar.
    Overall rather dry.
    Medium to long finish.
