Tomatin 1966 (SV cask #14362/63)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Tomatin
Signatory Vintage seems to have bottled this in the regular dumpy bottles but also in a posh crystal decanter.
Tomatin 26 yo 1966 (43%, Signatory Vintage 1992, cask #14362 / 14363, 1200 btl.)
Nose: fruity (peach, oranges) with a minty and leathery character. Hints of pollen and flowers. A little cardamom. Subtle Turkish delight. Not spectacular and maybe a little underpowered, but flawless. Mouth: sweet and fruity again. Grapefruit. Vanilla cake. Nutmeg. Getting drier over time and maybe slightly tannic. Finish: tannic and slightly bitterish. Medium long.
An enjoyable Tomatin with a slightly subdued fruitiness and a bitter tang.
