Review: Tomatin, 1973 Vintage

January 17th, 2011

Tomatin, 1973 Vintage (Cask #25602), 44%, £450

Aged in a refill American oak cask. Quite lively for its age, and the oak (surprisingly and happily) plays a supporting role rather than dominating. Creamy and mouth-coating, with vanilla wafer, coconut cream pie, caramel, nougat, and bright fruit (sultana, apricot, tangerine, and pineapple in syrup). Soothing finish. A very nice whisky. (Not available in the U.S.)

Advanced  Malt Advocate magazine rating: 92

  1. At 450 quid I think ‘a very nice whisky’ is a little less than I would expect…
