    The Half-time Orange whistle is blown and a jovial collective cheer fills the Mansfield Traquair.

    Tomatin brought out batch 1 of their 36yo expression in 2015. Batch 2 & 3 came out in 2016. According to a Tomatin marketing representative: unsure whether they could maintain enough old stock, this latest [2017/18] release is unofficially batch 4. Happy that they can maintain this age statement with suitable 70’s & now 80’s stock, Tomatin will re-continue the batch system with the release of batch 5 in 2019.

    N: Starts with a sweet maltiness that only age brings. Additionally, there’s a floral-mineral quality, entwined with compact notes of sweaty-sweet shower gels. Fabulous!

    T: Tastes as it smells which is great news. Abound with chalky, squidgy sweet fungal notes set within a soy sauce umami frame and leading to a very chewy waxy maltiness.

    F: Part of that chew is the finish that concludes with more sweet fungal malty dunnage action. Aged balance to the last.

    C: One that will compete closely with BBR’s 1979 Single Blend [WB], for Malt of the Fringe [notes to follow].

    Batch three of Tomatin's 36 Year Old has been aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and first-fill ex-oloroso-sherry casks. This is malt-led with notes of cloves, cardamom and vanilla. (TWE)

    N: Beautiful bourbon fungal style, but unlike the Pappy [coming up], it comes with a subtle bourbon honeyed barley/dunnage sweetness. 
    T: Honeyed putty with gentle spice.
    F: Short but lovely pancake grain finish.
    C: A beautiful one you cam easily quaff.Scores a B[+]
