Tomatin 25 yo

Postby Ganga » Mon Jan 12, 2009 8:11 pm

I was out in the desert last week and came across the Tomatin 25 in a little store. My question is what should this be priced at and does anyone have an opinion on the quality of the malt.

Tomatin always seems to have a slight feinty edge to me. I tried the 25yo ages ago and it never really struck any sparks, but it was nice enough and its cheap for a 25 OB.

They didn't have it priced such that you could tell but where it was I'd expect a price more in the neighborhood of $160-180. I'll keep my eye open as the notes look interesting.

I'm sure the 25 is much better, but I tried a 10 and wasn't impressed. No regrets, but I won't be buying another one.

Surprisingly this one appeared at our annual gathering. It is very interesting; much better than the standard bottlings most have had. Something to consider if the price is right.

I have not had the 25yo...yet I normally stay in the Islands as well. However I have had the 30yo and found it a lovely dram. It seems to me that Tomatin is a very good dram for the price. If you are paying 180 for the 25 though you should go up just a bit because I think I paid around 200 for the 30yo and it was worth it (and I know Whisky exchange has some at that price still).
