Tomatin, once the biggest malt distillery in Scotland, went bankrupt in 1985 and subsequently was acquired by two Japanese companies, Takara Shuzo and Okura & Co. In the recent decade the owners made significant investment in the brand, what translated to four-fold increase in sales to 460 000 bottles. The current Tomatin range contains at least a dozen expressions, from widely available 12 years old to extremely limited, sophisticated 40 years old. A 21 years old limited edition (2400 bottles) is a marriage of six bourbon casks and one sherry butt, bottled at natural strength of 52% abv in December 2009.
Nose: grassy and floral, with certain vegetal notes (asparagus?), forest floor, apples, gooseberries, vanilla, toffee, hints of pine resin and leather.
Palate: quite sweet, vanilla, caramel, toffee, touch of marzipan, raisins, plums, baked apples hints of aniseed and candied ginger and fading whiff of smoke.
Finish: fairly long and pretty spicy, ginger, pepper, nutmeg hints of vanilla and oak.
