    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/zwei-1965er-tomatin-im-vergleich-jack-wieber-vs-hart-brothers-32499/ Color: pale gold
    Nose: Sherrylastiger, tropical fruit gums with subtle, medicinal notes; Eucalyptus, waxy cough syrup / bittersweet and a little vanilla. Rather simply knitted nose and not very rich in content.
    Taste: Thin and quite flat at the beginning. Then spicy and getting better in shape with aromas of apples, lots of salt and herbs and sweet honey. However, a harsh smokiness is maintained throughout.
    Finish: mid-length. Herb - sweet - light wood! That's it. Actually quite boring and one-dimensional.
    84 points (nose: 84 / taste: 86 / finish: 82)

    Not really a complex Tomatin. A little too spicy and bitter for me.
    • Nose
      A little bit restrained. Tropical fruit, banana's but also bitterness. Floral notes.
    • Taste
      Quite spicy! Pepper and yellow fruit again. A little thin though.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Spice again.
