(42,3%, OB 2014, Oloroso sherry butt #001, 405 btl.)
Nose: quite spectacular. Raisins, almond biscuits, red berries. Loads of old leather chairs and polished exotic woods. Soft hints of liquorice roots. Whiffs of very old Oloroso, including the combination of figs and citrus that they often have. A bit of sour tobacco. Moving towards tangerine and maracuya. Mouth: quite light, but quickly showing those lovely Tomatin fruits. Passion fruits, hints of tangerine, mango and pink grapefruit. Tropical fruitiness with acidic citrus. The sherry side arrives a bit later: chocolate, plums and light herbal notes. Finish: relatively long, with some plums, citrus and wood spices.
Superb Tomatin and a lovely mix of sherry notes and the bright fruitiness of Tomatin in the 1970s. I think I prefer this one of the the 1977 that was bottled a bit later. Around € 600-700 and sold out in most places.
