From a refill Sherry puncheon, which has yielded 560 bottles, this single cask
Tomatin bottling offers an interesting stylistic contrast with the
simultaneously released 1973 variant from a refill American oak cask. Sherry and
caramel on the big, confident nose, cocoa powder, aniseed and treacle with time.
Full-bodied, mouth-coating, spicy Sherry, plain chocolate, hazelnuts and
liquorice on the palate. Oranges and soft toffee when water is added. Finally,
quite astringent in the lengthy finish.
