Whiskyfun's tasting notes:

Tomatin 34 yo 1976 /2011 (51%, Duncan Taylor, Rare Auld, refill sherry, cask #6822) Five stars Colour: pale amber. Nose: wonderful! A soft, fruity sherry combined with Tomatin’s soft, fruity… err, fruitiness. It’s quite extravagant to tell you the truth, with an avalanche of honey, nectar, quinces, ripe plums, old Sauternes… Also touches of aromatic herbs, dill, sage, celery… and a whole beehive. Let’s cut a long story short: it’s fab. Not whisky, a sin. With water: H2O only confirms what we already know. Mouth (neat): extravagantly fruity, spicy, herbal and resinous. Coating. Wonderful profile, perfectly balanced. Everything’s perfect here. Wow. Really. With water: ditto. Finish: long, coating, caramelly in a good way. Comments: this series is outta this world. Refill sherry at its best. I guess this could be a buying signal (wot???)SGP:651 - 93 points. (heartfelt thanks Herbert)

Nose

Ultra fruité. D'abord sur la cerise burlat bien mûre, un peu de raisins de Corinthe, pruneaux séchés, on sent l'influence du Sherry mais l'ensemble est raffiné et délicat. Ensuite viennent les sempiternels fruits exotiques, dont de la banane écrasée et de la mangue. Un peu de crème pâtissière. C'est ultra Gourmand ! Un côté cireux que je commence à bien apprécier dans les whiskies, Carolin, cire d'abeille, miel. Un profil un peu plus frais ensuite, mentholé, résine de pin.

Taste

Intense, complexe, ample. légers picotements. Oscille entre les fruits et les épices (cannelle, clou de girofle). Le tout bien équilibré.

Finish

Fruitée, de longueur moyenne. Un peu de bois sec. Amertume herbacée un poil dérangeante. Voir très astringeante !

Comments

Dommage pour cette fichue amertume et cette finale un peu en retrait. Je lui préfère même le DD, qui a un profil plus sur les épices, les délicatesses turcs et le miel que sur les fruits exotiques mais qui comme le TWA est beaucoup plus rond et fondu que ce DT. Son nez le "sauve" vraiment !
