- Creamy mouthfeel, on candied fruits and icing sugar with a few bubble gum notes
Its quite light in one respect but there is a nice sherbet fizz about it.
For such an old whisky this is surprisingly fresh.
I wonder if some of the more recent unnamed 1973 Speyside offerings are also Tomintoul because this has some similarities.
- What a fruit bomb with little wood influences for her age. Sample received from a colleague, thank you for that.
Pineapple, banana, pear, peach, melon, lemon, orange blossom, grapefruit, lime, caramel, raisins, plums, apricot, werther's orginal, hint of cinnamon and vanilla.
Melon, kiwi, unripe banana, pineapple, peach lemon, apricot, dates, grapefruit, vanilla, cappuccino, touch of leather, honey, sawdust and almonds.
Long, fresh tropical fruit, wood sawdust, apricot, lime, lemon, raisins, leather, honey and caramel.
- A very good dram, very enjoyable and relaxed.
Tropical fruit. Freshly cut tree.... which is rather remarkable. Marzipan en vanilla marshmallows. This is a rather odd nose for such an old whisky. Smells like fresh casks.
Very sweet and again tropical fruit. kiwi. Some vanilla and those marshmallows again. I don't know if I'm really fond of it. There is a whisper of mint in there. Then the oakiness comes forward.
Body: thick and creamy
Finish: long. again those tropic fruits. And banana. And some confectionery. Then there pops up more wood.
Price: Well I would pay max €200,- for this
Presentation: Don't know this was a sample.
A rather odd whisky. It smells and taste like fresh wood casks. For the rest it is a good whisky, but just not really my liking.
- I do not say that because my wife was born that year, but nondidju there are good things that were done in 1973, anyway !! This whisky has exactly the fruit that I particularly like: no acidity, no bitterness. It has nothing to envy to Tomatin or Benriach 1976. The only two caveats that prevent me from sticking a 92 are that it tends to fade too quickly, and its final a bit too short.
"Rhoo, that's super fruity, that!" is what came out of my mouth the first time I plunged nostrils into this whisky. Ripe apricot, peach, yellow plum. After aeration, orange blossom appears. Wooouuuu, I would smell this kind of scents for hours!
Fruit syrup flows in the mouth. Always apricot in mind, flanked by orange, grape-raspberry, and acacia honey. Of great finesse, it flows alone.
Short. A handful of sweet spices, while the fruits go out. A delicate woodland tip the tip of the nose. Myosotis pollen rises up in the nose.
