Another outstanding dram from Tomatin this time the Tomatin Decades, thanks to Ben (@ben_cops) from Bens Whisky Blog for the sample.
Tomatin Decades is a celebration of Douglas Campbell's 50 years at distillery. Casks from each decade have been selected by the man himself to create a unique single malt.
The following casks were chosen:
1967 - Refill Sherry Hogshead
1976 - Oloroso Sherry Butts
1984 - Refill Sherry Hogsdeads
1990 - First Fill Bourbon Barrels
2005 - Fill Bourbon Barrels
Pretty much sold out everywhere but you can still get one from Nicholl and Perks at the time of writing.
