Ah, Tomatin, one of my loves. This is a 14yo cask strength single cask bottling, being matured on a re-charred American oak, ex-red wine hogshead.
The combination is delicious. The re-charred wood gives this dram some real pleasant tropical and malty influence, while the red wine makes sweet and spicy.
A spicy warmth, red grapes, vanilla, pineapple, red fruits (mainly black berries) and a small hint of charcoal
The palate is dry and warming, with flavours of raspberry, wood, vanilla, mango, grapes and spices
The finish starts off with sparkling berry juice and grapes, it’s also deliciously malty, with pineapple, toasted bread and drying wood
Yep, this is another satisfying Tomatin!
