Tomatin 2007 Discovery (Gordon and MacPhail)
There are a few distilleries that i have a real fond affection for, Tomatin is most definitely one of them, it has a style that works really well for my palate and every dealing i've had in terms of staff with this distillery has been brilliant.
Flavour wise this Gordon and MacPhail bottling, theres some ronseal and paint like notes then lots, and i mean lots, of fruit in here, tropical fruit especially.
For around £50 this is exceptional value for money and damn drinkable.
Available from Specialists like Master of Malt.
Thanks to Gordon & MacPhail for the Official Sample.
Gloss paint and nail varnish, maybe more ronseal like decking varnish, fruit elements with thick grape skins, freshly scraped waxy Madagascan vanilla pods, tropical papaya and fresh pineapple chunks
Soft papaya chunks and grape skins, more of that waxy Madagascan vanilla, quite a lot of dark wood spices that tingle the tongue
Wood spices and more vanilla
