Words of whisky:
I'm quite taken by this Tomatin, but it's not a bottle I would buy myself. Maybe if the palate was a little less bitter and a bit more fruity. Good whisky though.
There's a hit of tropical fruit immediately, but there's not much of a follow through. A bit subdued at first. This might need more time. Let's give it some. Ah yes, there it is. More fruit, all kinds of citrus. Oranges, kumquats, lemon and some grapefruit too. Slightly dusty though, as well as quite a bit of oak.
A pretty big arrival with plenty of oak, bitterness and spices. But behind it is a layer of fruit. Mainly citrus again, but now with the grapefruit taking centre stage. Also some pineapple and mint.
Mellow and medium in length with soft orchard fruits. Pear and apple.
