Tomatin Distillery have launched a second UK exclusive bottling, a 2006 vatting of two casks, finished in French oak. Smooth and easy drinking, caramel, plum jam and marzipan help infuse a delicate sweetness, followed by a pleasantly dry finish with hints of coffee and spice.
Only 721 bottles available.
Nose : Initial bonfire toffee, which quickly softens to baked apple pie and aromatic spices; nutmeg and clove. In time, savoury granola emerges with tones of chocolate, walnut and banana.
Palate : Full of rich malty flavours resembling Christmas pudding and shortbread. Caramel, plum jam and marzipan help infuse a delicate sweetness.
Finish: Long pleasant and dry finish with hints of Coffee and Spice.
