Tomatin 19yr Island of Fidra (Lockett Bros) Review

Tomatin FidraBack around the early part of 2014 I seen a review of this Island of Fidra Tomatin on Barry's (@thewhiskyphiles) The Whisky Philes blog and really fancied i and so it became one of the fabulous bottle shares.

Bottled by a, fairly, local independent shp in North Berwick called Lockett Bros this has now sold out but if this is the quality of their drams I need to visit again very soon to try more of their bottlings.

This is seriously sweet and very very drinkable, it is most definitely up my street and one of the best expressions of Tomatin i've tried.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Super fabulously sweet, manuka honey and golden syrup covering large chunks of tinned pears and lashings of fresh fruit salad covered with a butterscotch sauce and Demerara sugar and soft sweet caramel chews

Palate

Sweet and sugary with oak tree sap and more tinned pears in syrup with extra honey and a hint of treacle, some cinnamon chrunch creeping in too

Finish

Sweet cinnamon chrunch
