    Really bold fruity notes, the finish is kinda similar to Castarede 1939 (later 90s bottling).

    Tomatin 31y 1976 (49,6%, Scotch Single Malt Circle 2008, cask #19085, 336 btl.)

    Nose: ooh, honeyed and tropically fruity like old Speysiders (let’s say Glenrothes or Linkwood) or even old Bowmore can be. Exotic fruits: mango, pineapple, tangerine marmelade. Demerara sugar. Banana. Strawberry. Hints of cigar box and lavender. Slight waxy notes and silky vanilla. Just marvellous. Mouth: still very fruity (banana, apple, berries) but a lot more wood now. Hints of kirsch / rum. Resinous notes. Slightly tannic and sourish. Fading towards grapefruit. Finish: rather long, more wood, half fruity / half spicy with a faint bitterness. Even a salty edge (liquorice).

    The nose of this Tomatin is tropical perfection, but on the palate there are a few less gentle (out of tune?) notes that counter-balance the overall fruitiness. A real treat anyway. Around € 155.

    Score: 90/100

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2013/1976-tomatin-sixpack-tasting-aus-einem-der-besten-jahrgaenge-der-destillerie-29320/ Color: full gold
    Nose: Salty orange with underlaid smoke, subtle honey note, wonderful and perfectly integrated, dark fruits (plums, blueberries) and marzipan; supplemented with leather notes and fresh tarragon.
    Taste: round and harmonious, spicy with a lot of salt, dried fruits (oranges), notes of black elderberry, honey and wood. Getting closer to the finish.
    Finish: long and dry spicy. Herbs with underlaid smoke, light wood, cocoa flavors and marzipan.
    92 points (nose: 92 / taste: 92 / finish: 92)
