    Well, we sorta know this is gonna be fruity, right?
    • Nose
      90 90
      Passionfruit, peach, honeycomb, lychee, persimmon
    • Taste
      90 90
      Truckloads of tropical fruits, with a fresh harvest of mangos and passionfruits for sure. Lots of honey. Still quite fresh and not tired at all. There is

      A bit of oak at the end, sure, and a slight herbalness. Daikon. The weakest part of the tasting. The prices for 1976 Tomatins have gotten a bit out of control and while they are all pretty damn good, it's certainly not more than $300-400 USD good.

    One of the best Tomatin's I have ever tasted. What a beauty!
    • Nose
      Very round bourbon style oakiness. Delicate sherry tones. Tropical fruits: mango, bananas and lychees. Dark chocolate and coffee. Notes of leather as well. Very impressive nose.
    • Taste
      Tropical fruits again but accompanied with spices like nutmeg, pepper and cinnamon. Vanilla. It seems no influence of sherry here.
    • Finish
      Warm lingering. Spicy and some oak.

  9. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very well balanced, very drinkable. Great whisky, nothing wrong with it.
    • Nose
      Very fruity: tropical. Some subdued sherry notes. And maybe some caramel.
    • Taste
      Definitely caramel. Still the tropical fruits. And oranges.
    • Finish
      Long, fresh, fruity with some slight darker notes (caramel, dried fruits).

  10. Cubey666 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this gem at the 2nd Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam, November 2017.

    People told me that 1976 is a somewhat legendary year for Tomatins, so the expectations were quite high. And man, i was not disappointed.

    What a perfect dram, in the nose perhaps not so fruity and full as an 81 Lochside, but what a delightful full flavoured body. Thick, slightly oily, passionfruit, chocolates and rosehip jam.
