Tomatin 1966 (SV cask #14362/63)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Tomatin

This Tomatin was one of the suggestions James made at the Lindores Whisky Fest. Old Tomatin can be great, so I decided to go for it.

Signatory Vintage seems to have bottled this in the regular dumpy bottles but also in a posh crystal decanter.

 

Tomatin 1966 / 1992 SVTomatin 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.

Score: 87/100
