    Cask #25602 was a refill American oak cask, and gave this single malt a complex and rich nose with notes of cinnamon, baked apples, toasted bread, and oak. The taste is spicy with touches of dry white wine, licorice, a lime tartness, and a good mouthfeel. The finish is tart and lingering with a citrusy note of fresh Key Lime pie.

    The Inverness-shire distillery of Tomatin has recently released a brace of
    single cask bottlings, selected by long-serving Master Distiller Douglas
    Campbell. The 1973 expression has been matured in a refill Bourbon cask, and
    just 184 bottles of this 36-year-old whisky are available. Zesty on the nose,
    with lemonade, vanilla, cream, malt and increasingly caramel notes, plus a hint
    of coconut oil. The addition of water teases out more citrus fruits. Fresh
    fruit, honey, more coconut and spicy oak on the palate. Drying steadily in a
    lengthy finish.
