Does remind me of Lochside 81. Very fruity and sweet, lovely!

Nose

Immediately fruity -- the good kind of fruits (ie not the green grassy unripened ones). We have here peaches, mandarins, pineapples, persimmon, lemons. Yup, we are at 1976 Tomatin territory.

Taste

Very complex, layers and layers of fruits, ever evolving. I would like this to be just a tad more viscous, but the mouthfeel is pretty good. There is a bit of a sharpness and tanginess to this also, and in these regards, this doesn't reach the depth and the decadent fruitiness of, let's say, the 1960's Bowmores. Also some herbs and honey. No need to add water. 

Finish

There is a bit of oaky flatness at the end. Minus one point. 

Comments

This is from a purchased sample. I also have an unopened bottle that I was thinking of selling, but after drinking the sample, hell no. I will keep it for future enjoyment.

[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.
