Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature, slightly fungal, nose: chestnut, mushroom, then out comes milk chocolate, sticky toffee pudding and oak.
Palate: Big, fat, toffeeish, then coconut. Big and spicy: cinnamon, orange and vanilla.
Finish: Fruity and ripe.
Comment: Lovely, soft and sweet.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Floral. Bergamot. Tobacco.
Palate: Well rounded. Fleshy. Voluptuous. Syrupy. Malty. Fudge-like.
Finish: Spicy. Cedary.
Comment: Perhaps because the distillery was built to make quantity, as a filler, the industry seems universally - but unfairly - to deny the possibility of Tomatin making a truly interesting single. I could certainly enjoy this one after dinner.
