Tomatin 14 Year Old Reviews

Tomatin 14 has a lot of spice notes in the aftertaste to me, which I'm quite fond of actually. Big fan of port casks in general and this is quite an affordable one.
One of the best highlands
It isn't god awful, but if you want a ruby finish on a scotch for around the same price I would always go with Quinta Ruban from Glenmorangie. It is superior to the tullibardine 228 as well.
This was my first Tomatin and this is a very pleasant malt. I liked it very much and can only compare it to a Glendronach 15 yr Tawny Port. I thought the Tomatin 14 yr was lighter and smoother than the Glendronach 15 yr Tawny Port. A nice after dinner dram which I am glad I purchased. I like the sweetness and the 46% alcohol. I am reviewing a Feb 2017 bottling of the Tomatin 14 yr. A good value here!
Smooth, balanced finish, on the sweeter side of life!
Am new to the whisky tasting game....so...so far I either like or don't like... I've bought 3 whiskys from the whisky exchange and I have a sweeter palate and I've learned to go by the style sweetness stars and definitely not by the character....because for all the sweet characters of raspberry, strawberry, honey and toffee this whisky just isn't sweet like glenmorangie bacalta or milsean!
A rich attractive hue and a rewarding flavour finished with a hint of honey. Very pleasant.
Dark fruit on nose light spice strong in smell mainly of port hint of marzipan Palate dried fruit spice cherry taste sweet Sharp citrus and spice herbs Flavour is not as strong as I would like. The sharpest in taste disappears after a short time. I would but this but only if the price is right but would not have it on a special occasion
