    The T of
    Tomatin is for Top! A bottle like it was recently sold for 320 EUR at McTears
    and at the time of writing Hedonism Wines in England still had a bottle on
    offer for (drumroll) 600 EUR. Thank the Maker for this big sample from my buddy
    Chris.
    • Nose
      Lift off! A
      fruit bomb on the nose from the very start. Great mix of dried and juicy fruit,
      very tropical. Mango, papaya, kiwi, pineapple, banana, but also orchard fruit.
      Soft spices with hardly any oak to speak of, which is quite surprising after
      almost four decades. Outstanding!
    • Taste
      Creamy,
      almost fatty, and round. Very fruity again. Powerful too. Well seasoned. It
      does show some oak now, but in a greatly supporting way, definitely not
      dominant. While mildly drying, it does remain juicy enough to make your mouth
      water. This is pure enjoyment! I refuse to add water (sorry, I just cannot
      bring myself to dilute it).
    • Finish
      The finish,
      which remains utterly fruity and tropical, should have been a little longer in
      my book.
