|Spirits Style||Single Malt|
Highlands, Scotland -The Tomatin 18 Year Old is a rich full bodied whisky with a predominantly malty fragrance. On the palate, the spirit is quite dry with an aromatic aftertaste. Matured in American Bourbon barrels and sherry butts.
The nose is quite punchy and of good body. There are notes of chewy grape and sultana with winter spice; cloves and cinnamon. There are notes of vanilla fudge and a most supple of smokes, weaving gracefully in cut grasses and apple peels. The palate is quite sweet and full. There are notes of barley sugar and honeycomb. Hints of chocolate orange and cocoa dusted liberally on toasty oak. The finish is long and powerful with a dry, chewy oak and a touch of pepper.
