I remember being more thrilled by this one a year back. Once again me or the sample ? Anyway, another very good Tomatin 1976.

Le nez est prometteur mais manque un peu de peps, c'est l'alcool qui ressort en priorité et il faut une longue aération pour qu'il ne soit plus agressif. Le mélange fruité exotique/fruits secs est présent mais faiblard. 


En bouche c'est autre chose. Une explosion de fruits exotiques, associée à un léger boisé sec avec des relents de vernis, vieux meubles, fruits secs, du cuir (d'ailleurs le sample vide le lendemain évoque un parfum masculin)

la finale est longue, sur les fruits exotiques toujours ce cuir et une légère sécheresse pas désagréable. 

Il a un coté classieux indéniable.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Nez austère, sec et poussiéreux.

Bouche de vieux marbre avec une couche de poussière, du bois, et des fruits racornis.

Finale sur le bois sec et les fruits exotiques.

Qui a ouvert le sarcophage de la vieille momie ??

Nez : plus agressif que dans le sample. On a quand même beaucoup de fruits, ainsi qu`un voile de sherry : vieux bois très classe, épices. Fruits rouges et noirs mais aussi pêches, nectarines. Un peu de vanille. Très joli nez.
Bouche : autant je trouvais que le nez était sur les fruits de chez nous, autant là c`est une explosion de fruits exotiques. Du très haut niveau ! Superbe ! Le Sherry rapplique ensuite, avec du cuir, un peu de raisins. Le bois est bien présent mais se tient en arrière-plan.
Finale : toujours sur ces fruits exotiques. Un peu courte.

Ne pas le diluer, on perd en concentration en bouche.

Superbe palais, vraiment génial, ce n`est pas souvent qu`on a droit à de tels fruits exotiques. Nez juste un peu en retrait, dommage.
