    Manzanilla is an especially light variety of Fino Sherry solely made around the port of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Like Fino sherry it is made from the Palomino grape and ages under a layer of flor yeast. This layer is thicker than a normal Fino and thus allows less contact with the air. Manzanilla features dry, salty and maritime flavours.

    Let's see how this Manzanilla whisky compares to the first Cuatro whisky.

    The idea behind this series sounds pretty interesting: Take a batch of whisky distilled on the same day (January 15th 2002), mature it for nine years in ex-bourbon casks and then finish each quarter in a different type of first-fill sherry cask – Fino, Manzanilla, Oloroso and Pedro Ximinez – for another three years. It will be very interesting to find out how big, or small, each sherry type impacted the very same base whisky.

    Tomatin Cuatro 12 yo – Manzanilla (46%, OB 2014, 1500 btl.)

    Nose: initially this came accross a little unfresh and porridgy, but it settled down nicely. A rather neutral Tomatin nose, with cereals, soft spices and waxy overtones. Yellow plums, pear and white grapes. Mouth: rather sweet (grapes, oranges, apples), hints of lemon cake, with a firm oaky spiciness (white pepper). Soft salty notes. Very smooth and enjoyable, the most natural of all? Finish: medium long, sweet (pastry-like) and peppery.

    Score: 85/100




  10. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Good dram, but too close to legacy. You do not necessarily taste the 12 years.
    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity. Light fruits, apples, pears, a bit of maize bacon, orange marmalade and flower meadow. The nose is reminiscent of the legacy. In the background little spicy oak.
    • Taste
      Oily and peppery on the go. Spicy oak, again orange, lemon and tobacco. A touch of nuts.
    • Finish
      Medium long with salt liquorice, a touch of pepper and nuts.
