Tomatin 25 Year Old (distilled 1978)
The Tomatin 30 year Old is one of my all time favourite drams so when my good friend Adrian (@mynameisgone) from Whisky Chronicle offered me a sample of the Tomatin 25 year old a while i back i jumped at the chance.
Unfortunatly it fell down the cracks of the samples i am getting through and has sat for a while but i finally got round to reviewing it and what a dram it is.
this is the version distilled in 1978 not the more recent release which also had 35cl bottles, and it's fabulous.
It's dusty, spicy, woody and filled with tropical fruits, it's just the right mix for me and i love it.
Thanks again to Adrian (@mynameisgone) for the sample.
There's initially a sweet but dusty dunnage warehouse note, with some wet oak almost saw dusty notes then there's a lemongrass infused tropical fruit punch with a hint of something spicy like nutmeg or cinnamon in there too
Sweet Demerara sugar in tropical fruit salad with gentle spices mixing In the background definite floral influences and hints of something gamey like venison on the end
