Tomatin 18 year old Single Malt Whisky.
Tomatin 18 year old Single Malt Whisky from the distillery located in the Monadhliath Mountains just south of Inverness. Established in 1897.
Tomatin (to rhyme with satin) is also one of the highest distilleries in Scotland at 315 metres above sea level.
The soft waters of the Alt-na-Frith (Free Burn) which run clear and pure through the Monadhliath Mountains help to create a Highland Malt with delicate flavours. Yet a rich and mellow style. Its undoubted quality and consistency make for a truly fine dram.
A proud testimony to the art of distilling.
This world class malt has been aged for a minimum of 18 years and married for a period in distinctive Spanish Oloroso sherry casks to produce an exquisite whisky. This non chill filtered whisky is packed full of flavour and has a velvety smooth mouth feel.
Tomatin 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Tasting notes;
Nose; Delicious sweet sherry bursts up you and plateaus with undertones of fresh apples, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup and a hint of smoky heather.
Palate; Sweet and honeyed at first, with an oaky edge. Develops in the mouth with a bite of citrus and a hint of dark chocolate.
Finish; The finish is long and lingering, with warming alcohol and smooth rich sherry, and it all keeps the mouth alive for several moments after. A world class single highland malt.
Casks; Initial maturation in re fill American oak casks, married in Oloroso sherry butts prior to bottling.
“What a well-mannered malt. As if it grew up in a loving, caring family and behaves itself impeccably from first nose to its last whimpering finale”.
