[December, 2011]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

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 92,5.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

Goûté en face to face avec le 1976 Wilson & Morgan : http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/30846/tomatin-1976-wm

Nez : Moins puissant et exubérant que le W&M. Fruité mais moins exotique. Fruits jaunes, agrumes (pamplemousse rose). Bon, il y a quand même des fruits exotiques, hein... De la liqueur d'herbes type Chartreuse aussi.

Bouche : Belle puissance en bouche. Là encore, l'exotisme est moins marqué que dans le W&M. L'attaque est surprenante, à fond sur la liqueur d'herbe évoquée plus haut, puis on retrouve les fruits, pamplemousse rose en tête, mais aussi les fruits exotiques.

Finale : Longue, les tanins sont là mais rien de gênant. Joli retour en force de la liqueur d'herbe mêlée de pamplemousse.

Conclusion : un malt de haute volée, mais un cran en-dessous du précédent.

90 ou 91/100... Aller, disons 91 parce que c'est quand même bien bon c'te affaire !

Nose

Fruit basket. Some honey. Refill sherry. 

Taste

More fruits - apple, cherry, raspberry.  But there's plenty of bitterness from the oak. Water releases more fruits and the oak dissipates somewhat.

Finish

oak returns with spices - some pepper, herbal liqueur, bitterness. Mint at the end.

Comments

It's lovely, but not quite as fruity as I was expecting as the oak is apparent - though the fruits are there, especially on the nose.
