Whisky Reviews for Tomatin Cask Strength

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.59 points

  1. midnite scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    I have to say I'm somewhat over the whole cask-strength-without-an-age-statement thing. Sure, these bottlings have a lot of firepower but the nuances and more subtle maturation effects tend to fall by the wayside. Instead, we tend to get (hyper)active (and mostly American) oak and a lot of first-fill use to compensate for a lack in maturation time. But I digress...

    This is actually pretty nice and not one-dimensional at all. A bit brute and on the nose, perhaps. Somewhat surprisingly, it is also less fruity than I had expected for a younger Tomatin. It goes more toward fresh oak spices, with noticeable sherry influence and a blatant, candied sweetness. This would do well in autumn, paired with anything that has pumpkin in it.

    The finish, as is usually the case with these NAS cask-strength OBs, is nothing to write home about.

    Decent stuff, but one or two drams will suffice for me.

  2. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    This is a very much Oloroso influenced nose. A savory note, leather, shoe polish. But there is a quite 'nosable' note of the alcohol. Of course there are the red fruits, but they are more on the background.
    With water: Much more tamed down. It has the same smells, but less heat of the alcohol.

    Taste:
    Heavy, robust, very red fruit candy sweet. Then there is also the leather, hardy, shoe polish note which I think is quite good.
    With water: Very nice, less alcohol influence and more subtle red fruit influences.

    Body:
    Full and creamy

    Finish:
    Medium-long length. Here again a lot of red fruits, it is a bit dry and gets a little tannic in the end. The finish is it's weakest point.
    With water you get more of the bourbon barrel influence, but it remains sherry dominated.

    Price:
    Around €50,- is quite fair for this bottle.

  3. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2017/09/26/tomatin-tuesday-2/

    N: A big leathery malt with an blatant oloroso sherry ratio. Texturally, a little creamier when reduced to 46%.
    T: Bold, full and very tasty,…. but,… here comes the sherried cavalcade. Yawn
    F: I’m exaggerating, a little. Finishes more rounded and balanced with a burnt butterscotch/corn/bourbon/sherry mixture.
    C: Heavy, basic and crude in comparison to what came after - from the independents again.Scores a C

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Was heading for 87, but -1 for the finish, or lack thereof.
    • Nose
      Fruity and creamy. Different kinds of desserts: Pineapple yoghurt, peach yoghurt, vanilla pudding, porridge and eventually crême brûlée. And water makes it even creamier.
    • Taste
      More sherried with caramel and berries. Vanilla, apple and chili pepper. Definitely a bit smoky. Water takes off the peppery edge and brings the bourbon notes back on top, but add too much and it turns a bit soapy.
    • Finish
      Dryer: Roasted nuts. The weak spot of this kind of young, cask-driven whiskies. Not bad, but nowhere near the fragrant nose and full taste.
