...which is displays the delicious Tomatin profile perfectly, but it owns a rather weak texture only. Hence both mouthfeel and finish are sub-standard (compared to the usual excellent Tomatin texture).
The colour is pale gold, and the nose offers a subtle and delicate profile of fresh fruits, honeys, spring flowers and spicy wooden notes. All is nicely balanced, and I like all the aromas I can detect. This is a trademark Tomatin nose and guess why blenders love this dram...
The taste is delicious on barley sugars, home-grown fruits and honeys with spices (vanilla, peppers, ginger) and appropriate wooden notes. Again, all is balanced and without any flaws. Guess why blenders like Tomatin...
The dram arrives warming but without the powerful coating effects Tomatin is famous for (so blenders will not like the texture of this dram). Hence the finish is rather short and adds no new impressions, neither good nor bad. Water just flattens the dram.
