- Tomatin 40 yo 1967/2007 (51.8%, Signatory, cask #2632, sherry butt, 415 bottles) Colour: deep amber. Nose: there’s the sherry (amontillado quality), there’s some mint, there’s some leather, there’s some cigarette tobacco (‘newly opened pack of Camels’), there’s some camphor, there’s some thuja wood, there’s some rancio, there’s some walnut liqueur, there’s some wax polish and there’s quite some raisins, old rum, fruitcake, prunes, very black tea (Russian blends), game, soy sauce, raw cocoa, candle wax, squashed oranges... and only go knows what else. Hey Mr Whisky, we haven’t gotten all night! Mouth: just in case you’re wondering, it’s not woody at all. As for the rest, ‘take the nose, add some liquorice and you’re done’. Finish: now we can feel the oak (and its tannins) but they ‘act’ just as a beautiful signature, making the whole experience sort of more serious and ‘straight’.In short, an exceptional old sherried wonder by Signatory Vintage that will remind us of some of their older Glendronachs, Glenlivets or Glen Grants. Only flaw: it’s too damn drinkable, especially at ‘the new prices’. 93 points.
- This is a really nice dram. Maybe just starting to creak with wood, but that's all that stops it from being great.
Amazingly deep. Loaded with red fruits. Has a real sense of age, but still lovely.
Sweet, soft, loaded with fruit. Excellent delivery of malt. Almost dusty with wood though.
Shortish, but very pleasant.
Very intensive with a lot of oil based paint, even paint thinner, fingernail polish, chemical cleaning formulas, a lot of dark chocolate, tobacco, smoke, and wet cigarettes.
Red tea, burned wood, dark chocolate, tobacco, smoke, brandy, salt, mint, a lot of dryness and barley.
Rather short with some bitterness and dryness.
