Tomatin 36 yo 1977/2015 'Rare Casks - Batch 1' (46%, OB, casks #48 & 30142, 798 bottles) They priced this one rather fairly, despite the age, the decanter, and the large wooden box. That’s £450. Colour: gold. Nose: old Tomatin with flying colours and bursting fruits and honeys. Exceptional oranges topped with olive oil and honey, some fresh mint, hints of old roses, precious woods, mangos, skincare… And in the background, these earthy touches that we enjoy so much. Fantastic nose! Mouth: a superlative brightness, some stunning honey, an unusual earthy/mushroomy side, plenty of mangos, and a good deal of maracuja. Oh and oranges again. It’s one of these easy and bright, yet very complex and refined old Tomatins. Finish: medium long, on the same notes, with some unexpected bacon in the aftertaste. Sherry? Comments: very dangerous whisky, for it goes down so easily and brightly. Really worth buying at this price. SGP:751 - 93 points.
