    Whiskyfun's tasting notes:

    Tomatin 34 yo 1976 /2011 (51%, Duncan Taylor, Rare Auld, refill sherry, cask #6822)  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)

    Damage to this damn bitterness and this final a little behind. I even prefer the DD, which has a profile more on spices, Turkish delicacies and honey than on exotic fruits, but like the TWA is much rounder and melted than this DT. His nose really "saves" him!
    • Nose
      Ultra fruity. First on the ripe Burlat cherry, a few currants, dried prunes, we feel the influence of Sherry but the whole is refined and delicate. Then come the endless exotic fruits, including crushed banana and mango. A little custard. It's ultra Gourmand! A waxy side that I start to appreciate in whiskys, Carolin, beeswax, honey. A slightly cooler profile then, minty, pine resin.
    • Taste
      Intense, complex, ample. slight tingling. Oscillates between fruits and spices (cinnamon, clove). All well balanced.
    • Finish
      Fruity, medium length. A little dry wood. Herbaceous bitterness a disturbing hair. See very astringient!
