Tomatin, Decades II, 46%Tomatin
This is the long awaited second release of the ‘Decades’ concept from Tomatin distillery, limited to just 3600 bottles. 21 fine casks have been selected from years spanning each decade from the 1970s, marrying ex bourbon, sherry, French oak and Verdejo wine casks. The result is seductive and complex - think vibrant tropical fruit, malt and sweet pastry, with deeper aromas of oaky spice, waxy honey and dark chocolate that come from the older casks. A beautifully balanced dram that just keeps giving layer upon layer of flavour.
