Tomatin 11 Year Old - Artful DodgerTomatin 11 yo 2008 (56,1%, Artful Dodger 2019, bourbon hogshead #453, 323 btl.)

Nose: youngish spirit, very close to the raw materials. Gristy notes, barley, some yeasty bread and porridge. Lemon juice. Light vanilla and caramelized sugar, some grassy notes.

Mouth: brighter but still fairly young, with a bold attack. Green fruits with a generous dose of peppery notes, aniseed and peppermint. Shortbread. Grass and roots. Some sourness and tannins too.

Finish: quite long, with malty flavours, citrus zest and hints of mustard seed.

Decent spirit but too young and therefore a bit expensive for what it has to offer. Just in at The Whisky Exchange.

Score: 80/100
