Tomatin 2002 / 12 Year Old / Fino Finish / Cuatro
This dram was part of a tweet tasting held by Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire and Tomatin (@tomatin1897) to sample the new Cuatro series. Unfortuanatley i took ill at the time and had to catch up a few weeks later.
This is the first of the 4 drams, each of them 12 years old and finished for their last 3 years in different sherry casks, this one being the Fino sherry cask.
You can buy this dram and the others in the range from The Whisky Exchange
Thanks again to Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire and to Tomatin (@tomatin1897) for the chance to sample the Cuatro series
The nose here begins with lovely gentle notes of sweet milky chocolate with hints of tropical fruits coming through also of mango, and sweet crushed grapes
Very easy drinking although it is a little tart, with hints of almond paste and chocolate mousse
Theres a hint of cigar ash and chilli on the finish here
