  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur


    This whisky sat in a cask [an inert cask from memory] in the distillery shop for a number of years [very possibly because of the hefty price tag]. Both Whiskybase entries list the number of bottles from this cask as 258. I guess that number could only have been ascertained by the person/persons who were there when the cask was finally drained.

    N: More than 25 years in a cask and there’s no sign of woodiness or a tannic attack. Lovely stuff.

    T: This might be an old boy in numbers terms but it’s still fully loaded, check the abv! It didn’t seem to like water too much but I didn’t have the opportunity to experiment fully.

    F: Peanut-y again, like with the 1976 vintage. No peanuts in my diet atm so maybe it’s a Tomatin trait?

    C: Another good showcase for the spirit and the distillery profile. We all wanted to take home a special souvenir but at £250, I’m more than satisfied with my 1976 vintage sample.

    Colour: straw. Nose: it’s got this grassiness as well at first sniffs,
    but the expected topical and orchard fruits are soon to take over, with
    plantain bananas, guavas, and greengages plus pears. Some kind of
    mentholy lemon adds even more freshness, while the oak adds just wee
    touches of vanilla and coconut. Very wee ones! With water: the usual
    feeling of fruit salad with drizzles of acacia honey and barley syrup.
    Pretty perfect, this. Mouth (neat): an extravagantly and tropically
    fruity arrival, on guavas again, passion fruits, lemons, and
    grapefruits. All that is sharp and ultra-zesty, without much compromise
    as they say on Kildalton’s coastline. Did they add grapefruits to their
    mash? With water: more of all that, with a feeling of dry sémillon (or
    dry white from Sauternes). Finish: medium, all on grapefruits and
    lemons. Comments: not quite the exuberant kind of tropical fruitiness as
    could be found in earlier vintages (say 1976), but it’s, well, just
    great, and superbly clean. Excellent. SGP:651 - 89 points.
