Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1965 DT
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.36 points
- Plain delicious. I was going for 90 points, but one more is called for because this whisky does what many a bottle don't: it tells you a story, provided you take the time to listen instead of emptying the glass in 10 minutes.
Tasted with Glenury Royal cask 6859 (89 pts.) and Bunnahabhain 34yo 1968 OB 43,5% (89).
Thanks to member Mr.Sandwich for the sample!
Solvent, cognac and old oloroso sherry. A little while later, a Kismet chocolate bar. The longer it stays in the glass the better it gets, with the solvent-like start giving way to chess pieces, chlorine, butter, and more of that old cognac feel. A few drops of water help it open up faster, but I wouldn't put too much in.
Aged armagnac, tannins, mixed nuts, wax. A full, rich, and round body with no ethanol bite whatsoever. A restrained and refined profile, the definition of elegant. With a few drops of water and some time it becomes less tannic and more sherried. A bit of hazelnuts and chlorine, and some kind of old liqueur.
Soft tannins. A little drying and resinous (seal wax), but lovely. With water it acquires a bit of bite. I wonder where that came from?
