    Tomatin 36 yo 1977 (46%, OB 2015, Batch 1, cask #48 + 30142, 800 btl.)Nose: starts on polished woods and lots of fresh, minty notes. Then the fruits set in, mainly exotic (1976-ish) fruits: mango, some guava and passion fruits. Juicy pears and pink grapefruit. Some herbal honey. Golden raisins. Hints of vanilla and ginger. A tad spicier than most 1976s, but equally nice and more complex. Mouth: fairly earthy and malty, with a little more (bourbonny) wood than I expected. Baking spices. Cloves and cardamom. Less sweet than the nose suggested, further away from 1976, with less tropical fruits. Orchard fruits here: pear, apple, oranges too. Okay, subtle mango and one passion fruit in the background. Aniseed. Finish: not huge, but a smooth, fresh combo of fruits and bourbonny oak.

    Excellent whisky. The bourbon wood tempers the exuberant 1976 exotic fruits but also adds complexity. Quite expensive. Score: 91/100
