[December, 2011]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 72 Euro in October, 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 87,5.  My notes state an easy to drink and quite interesting to explore dram.  It takes its time to fully understand this malt but it is worthwhile to go for it...

There is no accounting for taste...

This is a beautifully constructed dram.  Starts with a fruity sweetness, develops some chocolate and savory notes in the mid-palate, then finishes with baking spices and just the tiniest hint of bitterness as it fades away making me want to take another sip.  Initially I thought it might have benefited from a little more alcohol, but after a couple of drams I'm convinced it was bottled at just the right strength.  Really outstanding.

Nez végétal et pâtissier, assez vert.

Attaque sucrée puis confirmation des arômes du nez avec en plus l’apparition d’un léger boisé, texture agréable et alcool bien intégré.

Finale courte, manque de charme et de caractère, anodin.

Tomatin Decades
(46%, OB 2011, 9000 btl.)

Nose: starts buttery and milky, with hints of vanilla ice cream. Soon these notes are overtaken by juicy fruits: stewed apples, peaches, but also great hints of tropical fruits. Dried fruits from the sherry are present on a lower level as well as some marzipan and caramel. Even some traces of peat. Nicely layered, plenty of things to discover. Mouth: creamy again (fruits with whipped cream, yum). Apples, orange sherbet, papaya… Vanilla and cinnamon. Faint butterscotch notes. Sweetish, fresh and balanced. Finish: medium long, hints of drying oak now, and soft spices.

This Tomatin Decades is well composed. It’s nice to see the typical 1960-1970’s fruitiness mixed with vibrant flavours and a creaminess from the younger casks. Fair pricing as well, so recommended. Around € 80.

Score: 89/100

Fein, sommerlich-sueß und exotisch-fruchtig. Mango, Pfirsich, Apfel, Birne, Orange...eine ganze Schale Fruechte. Dabei auch frische Wiesenblumen und Malzzucker. Im Hintergrund Etwas Eiche und Gewuerze sowie ein Hauch Ingwer und Blutorange sowie Vanille.
Eine tolle Nase, die mit zunehmender Zeit an Komplexitaet gewinnt.

Taste

Ein herrlich-sueßer Frucht-Smoothie, Zitrusfruechte, Pfirsich, Orange in Honigglasur. Auch wieder etwas Ingwer und Salmiak, Karamell und Vanille. Gefolgt von Malz, Eichenwuerze und einem Hauch Kaffee.

Finish

Lang mit Salmiak, dunkler Schokolade mit Orange, Malz und wenig Eiche. Waermend und angenehm.

Comments

Wow, ein ueberraschend komplexer und voluminoeser Malt.
