    I've visited Tomatin in September 2017, where according to a tour guide their oldest existing cask was bourbon cask #30258, distilled in 1967 as well. So this one here, sherry butt #35817, must be a tad younger, but still some of Tomatin's oldest stock; the date of distillation (11-24-1967) seems to back up this conclusion most likely.
    On Tomatin's homepage there is a short tasting note in the press release of Tomatin 50 from 12-17-2018:

    "On the nose, aromas of freshly felled oak in an orchard of apples, pears and plums can be expected.
    Once on the palate, it releases bursts of exotic tropical fruits and dried apricots, sweetened with flavours of vanilla toffee, crème caramel and flame raisins.
    Spice and fruits balance perfectly, providing a luxurious and velvety finish."

    Oh, and distillery manager Graham Eunson knows something about the spices being "mellowed by lashings of Manuka honey".
