Tomatin 36 yo 1976 “Full metal dram” (49,3%, The Whiskyman for Fulldram 2012, 103 btl.)

Nose: alright! An excellent nose, full of juicy citrus with a good dose of sherry (I’d say a tiny bit more than usual). There’s tangerine, blood orange, pink grapefruit, apricot, banana and guava. Nice vanilla cake and honey. A little almond cream. There seem to be more mint and grasses than in similar releases, as well as a hint of silver polish (the metallic hint they’re referring to in the epitheton). A little oak polish too, but oak itself is hardly to be found. Superb. Mouth: very sweet at first, with red fruit jam, cooked peaches, half-dried prunes and then a brighter, very beautiful wave of typical Tomatin goodness: pink grapefruit, passion fruits, tangerine. Lovely depth and complexity. There’s a secondary theme of sweet oak, soft herbs and fruit tea. A nice touch of mocha glaze in the aftertaste. Finish: very long, softly drying on fresh herbs, with a lot of sweetness still.

An excellent example of Tomatin 1976, probably the best one we’ve had so far. Around € 185 at the time, but all 103 bottles have found a new home already. Not mine, unfortunately, as I wasn’t an official member of the club yet. I’m willing to adopt!

Score: 92/100

Nose

Oh, my, this nose is very good. Blood oranges, grapefruit, raisins in syrup, eucalyptus, almond paste, milk chocolate and a teaspoon of molasses. Very spicy, but without a trace of oak. Waxy. Grassy. Nice!

Taste

It is soft an oily, almost syrupy, on the palate. The spices I get are heath bush and cardamom. Dark fruit à la plums! Melon and peach as well. Actually, quite tropical indeed. Some coffee, too. A hint of wine gums, but not quite. Very sweet.

Finish

This continues into the medium long finish that remains lively until the end.

Comments

This is quite different from the official bottlings that so enamoured me. Absolutely great Tomatin! If you can still find it: 185 EUR.
