Tomatin did a quick renewal of its 25 year old in a half bottle. It appeared in shops for a very short time, and offering an excellent value for money, disappeared off the shelves. I had a chance to taste it and was most pleasantly surprised by this dram.

Tomatin 25 (43% ABV)

Appearance: Gold with slow legs. It seems pretty viscous.

Nose: Honeysuckle gives it a strong floral leaning with vanilla and honey, with a dash of freshly cut tropical fruit – pineapple and some fruit cocktail from a can.

Palate: Pineapple juice, heather honey and passion fruit pulp. White pepper and some coconut round it out, followed by a wave of bitter almond.

Linger: Peppery and long, with the fruit on the tongue and a somewhat dusty linger.


The nose is spectacular, and the palate is not bad at all…
