Tomatin 20yr Old Particular (Douglas Laing)
Thanks to Ben (@ben_cops) from Bens Whisky blog for the sample of this 20 Year Old Tomatin from Douglas Laing's Old Particular Range.
This is a really quite unusual Tomatin as along with the usual sweet floral sweetness there's also some interesting meaty and salty notes, almost game and salted caramels, it's odd for Tomatin but it really works well and I reall enjoyed this dram.
Sold out at Master of Malt but there may be a bottle kicking around somewhere
Initially quite a meatiness that I wasn't expecting from Tomatin then edges of sherry soaked raisins and treacle covered undercooked doughy flour coated scones
Sweet and a little salty treacle covered scones, hints of war, bread and sweet mouth watering melon and chewing gum
salted caramels and sweet melon
