Long and oily "legs" stick to the glass wall of my Premium Snifter, rust-brown with a reddish glow, the Tomfarclas shines in the glass. Dark sherry aromas stand out with hints of dried berries and grapes, creamy roasted aromas blur with hints of discreetly decayed and musty wood tones. Soft toffee flows over a block of firm caramel, fruity orange wedges and velvety vineyard peach exude their beguiling aroma. Raisins and dates dissolve, a pinch of cocoa powder falls into liquid milk chocolate, the sweetness increases noticeably. Shortly, sour cherries and blackberries appear, then grated leaves of peppermint produce a fresh note and slowly stimulate salivation.
Creamy and mild toffee and chocolate flow over the tongue, roasted hazelnut chips mix with spicy wood tones and peaches to a delicious mixture. Milk chocolate sticks to the palate, slowly peppery pungency pushes over the tongue and tickles the palate. Slowly, the peppery sharpness changes into wood sharpness, dry and harsh wood tones rise. Sour cherries and plums float on the tongue, cedar wood and hints of leather appear after a few moments, the mouthfeel becomes creamier and also spicier. Tobacco dissolves from thin cedar wood flakes, currants produce a slightly sour fruit note with blackberries and sour cherries.
Spicy wood tones, dried tobacco leaves and sour cherries rest with hints of leather and open humidor long creamy on the palate. Despite a relatively high alcohol content of 57.9%, the alcohol is almost unnoticeable. Caramel and tobacco are creamy with dark sherry flavors resting on the tongue. A feeling of eternity flows through the entire mouth area of supple heat before the aftertaste begins to fade away slowly and creamy.
