- Tomatin 30 Year Old
Tomatin 30 Year Old Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in a combination of European and North American Oak casks. Only 1,500 bottles are released each year.
This 2014 release is the final bottling of the 30 Year Old.
Nose: Intense juicy aromas arouse the senses - Green Apples, Passion Fruit, Honey Dew Melon, Blackcurrant and Blueberries. Citrus notes come to the fore all the while a candy sweetness drifts along with hints of polished leather in the background.
Palate: Gooseberry, Ginger and Hazelnuts make way for spicy oak which hits the middle of the tongue. The oak is balanced beautifully by a honey sweetness that drifts to the back of the palate.
Finish: Long, clean and pleasurable.
