    Virgin Oak?

    Look now, an older release in the Exclusive Malts series by the Creative Whisky Company, when packaging was not yet important… This very young Tomatin has spent more time in the bottle than it did on the cask. It was finished on a ‘fresh American oak cask’.

    On the nose I immediately get scents that I associate with bourbon. Lots of vanilla, corn on the barbecue, coconut and grain cookies. Hint of wood glue. Underneath this is a nice bit of citrus fruit and some green tea, unripe banana and white chocolate. Nice.

    Nicely oily. Quite piquant (white pepper), but mostly honeysweet. The white chocolate returns first, followed by coconut and a truckload of vanilla. Sweet corn. Then some grapefruit, lemon and some barley sugars. Finally some bittersweet oak. Surprisingly soft for its ABV.

    The finish is very long, warm on sweet oak that slowly but surely turns the mouth dry.

    I have no certainly, but this ‘fresh American oak cask’ might very well have been ‘virgin oak’, for the spiciness is grand and the bourbon characteristics dominate.

    Great malt. If the strong bourbon flavors are not usually my cup of tea, it still fits together really well. When leaving then a small "wow" moment.
    • Nose
      Strong bourbon notes. Blind you could confuse the first synonymous. Over time, then some citrus fruits. Sweet malt and very unobtrusive. The alcohol can be felt to no second.
    • Taste
      Again, one could first have my own bourbon in the glass. Sweet corn, sweet oak and some malt. For 56.6% Vol. Surprisingly mild, yet voluminous.
    • Finish
      Extremely long finish, the sweet oak from the mouth reverberates here extremely long, yet strong, before it gets drier and drier. For me, the finish is the highlight of this malts.
