Tomatin 36 yo (46%, OB 2016, Batch #2, 800 btl.)
Nose: highly aromatic. A bursting tropical fruit salad, including mango, pink grapefruits, guava, kiwi. Hints of herbal honey and touches of raspberry. Plenty of polished wood, including some women’s powder. Ginger and vanilla. Light earthy notes in the background. Mouth: very smooth, with the expected tropical fruits (the ones above plus passion fruits, apricots and pears). Now also showing some nutty notes and orange peel. A light briny note, as well as cardamom and cloves. Perhaps a bit on the woody side. Finish: long, on oaky notes, grapefruits, Seville oranges and clove.
Excellent Tomatin again, with the trademark tropical fruits complemented by some polished wood and spices. Score: 91/100
