Cask No. 33271/33272
The second of Tomatin’s UK exclusive releases, this time a 721 bottle limited edition 12 year old. This 2006 vintage was matured in in bourbon casks initially before being transferred, the result of the process being a dry and pleasing 46% ABV malt with notable flavours of chocolate and banana.
Initial bonfire toffee notes on the nose, which quickly softens to hints of baked apple pie and aromatic spices; nutmeg and clove. In time, savoury granola emerges with tones of chocolate, walnut and banana.
Full of rich malty flavours resembling Christmas pudding and shortbread. Caramel, plum jam and marzipan help infuse a delicate sweetness.
A long, pleasant and dry finish with hints of coffee and spice.
