Comparing 14 Year Old Port Finished Tomatins

Tomatin 14 year oldA couple of absolutely amazing 14 year old port finished Tomatin drams, one the new official 14 year old bottle, the other a single cask version.

I would happily have both of these drams permanently in my whisky collection, and would highly recommend the 14 year old to anyone who likes fresh fruity and interesting drams.

I really don't know which is my favourite, although i think the Single Cask maybe just pips it.

Many thanks to Tomatin for the official samples.


Tomatin 14 Year Old Port Finish

Tomatin 14 year oldOne of the latest additions to the Tomatin range this is the 14 year old port finish.

I'm a huge fan of port matured whisky and this is no different a cracker of a dram with soft sweetness like the whole Tomatin range and lots of dark fruits too, a very nice dram and one that I will happily be maintaining as a staple in my whisky collection.

you can pick up a bottle of this dram for under £50 by heading over to The Whisky Exchange

Many thanks to Tomatin for the official sample.

 

Initially starts with some cracking dark fruits, plums and nectarines with prunes, freshly scraped vanilla pods and some fresh tropical fruits, very yummy

Initially some spiciness, almost like a good curry, with some fresh tropical fruit and lots of dark fruits, plum and vanilla essence

spicy tingle and fruit that goes on and on

Tomatin 2000 Port Finish Cask #36406

Tomatin 2000 Port Finish Cask #36406I was lucky enough to win a sample of this dram from the Tomatin newletter.

This is preview of the new Tomatin 14 year old from a single cask and is a sublime dram, genuinely one of the best drams i've ever had, really want a full bottle of this (Jennifer if you are reading this i would love one if i can :) ).

Cask strength Tomatin really is fabulous and shows off the extra range of sweetness.

Many thanks to Tomatin for the official sample.

 

Oh my this is wonderful, the initial notes are of dark plums dipped in thick golden syrup, tropical fruits galia melon, kiwi, pineapple and coconut with pomegranate seeds and gentle freshly scraped vanilla pod

fresh tropical fruit salad, galia melon, kiwi and pineapple with caramelised demerera sugar and creme brule topping so easy to drink.

super sweet caramelised demerera sugar and kiwi.
