    Bis dato immer noch der beste Tomatin, den ich im Glas hatte.
    • Nose
      Immediately a fruity nose rises from the glass. Nice fruit compote. Apricots, vanilla, grapes, moist hay, orange peel, some old leather. In the background a little more alcohol rises, but only discreetly and not disturbing. Honey mixes with the fruit compote, but rather a sweetish not too spicy honey. Amazing that after 33 years in the barrel still such a freshness comes about.
    • Taste
      The fruit compote from the nose arrives immediately in the mouth. Passion fruit, light spiciness on tap, vanilla, apricots, light hints of kumquats and a touch of clove. Also a honey note is included, most likely maple honey. Time and again the passion fruit comes to the fore and mixes with light cocoa notes.
    • Finish
      Very long, the fruitiness gradually gives way to the spice, which makes it pleasantly sweet in the mouth with a sweetish note and is still present after 2 minutes. After that it fades gradually.

    [October, 2010]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 165 that I bought for 89 Euro in July, 2010.[February, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 167 that I bought for 89 Euro in February, 2011.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90 and 87,5.  My notes state a beautiful fruity profile but some heavy wooden notes too.  It should have been bottled some years earlier...
