Tomatin / Douglas Laing

Tomatin 20yr Old Particular (Douglas Laing) Review

Tomatin old particularThanks 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

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

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

Palate

Sweet and a little salty treacle covered scones, hints of war, bread and sweet mouth watering melon and chewing gum

Finish

salted caramels and sweet melon
