Just a review for an easy Monday morning…
Tomatin 17 yo 1997 (51%, Liquid Library 2014, refill hogshead, 268 btl.)
Nose: totally naked Tomatin. Plenty of garden fruits like apples and peaches but also sweeter green melon and hints of mango. Some greener notes as well, like apple seeds and grasses. Hints of leather.
Mouth: very sweet, almost syrupy if not for the peppery touches and grassy notes again. Juicy pears, pineapple, peaches on syrup. Hints of candy sugar. Tiny hints of dough and vanilla.
Finish: rather long, with liquorice, subtle herbs and zesty lemon.
No fuzz, just well made and straightforward Tomatin with some old-style touches. Very good card players whisky, as they say. Around € 90.
