The Tomatin distillery lies halfway between Aviemore and Inverness at a height of 315 meters in the Monadhliath Mountains and is in Japanese hands. This indie bottling from Chester matured for 19 years on an ex-bourbon cask and is rather pale.

The nose is creamy, almost fat. Farmer butter, Werther’s Original candy, some orange zest, honey and heather. Turkish Delight. Hints of roasted grains. Nice!

On the palate it is very, very, very soft. Nutmeg and liquorice pave the way for all kinds of sweet fruit. Honey and heather are never far off. Midpalate it turns bittersweet as if from grapefruit.

That continues on into the medium long finish, which dies on oak, spices and the ever present honey.

Yep, the lads from Chester are doing a great job. I am actually looking forward to their first Toshan, but that is another story. This great Tomatin will set you back about 75 EUR.
