Tomatin 15YO

What they say:

The newest edition to the standard range was released in August 2009. Soft and delicate, with significant influence from the North American oak.

Tasting notes:

Nose: Light and fresh, with delicate oaky notes coming through. An explosion of fruit follows with peach and citrus flavours dominating, vanilla and orange peel linger in the background.
Taste: Soft, gentle and very fruity. Smooth, medium body, delicate honey, mild orange and apricot.
Finish: Gentle and soft flowing. A wonderful addition to the standard range.

What I say:

Refreshing, palate cleansing, huge citrus punch with a face full of lemons – pow!

Colour:

Pale yellow gold

Nose:

Citrus lemon and oranges and grapefruit

Taste:

Spicy clean and subtle, pleasant flavour of lemon and grapes and grapefruit

Finish:

Very refreshing and slightly drying
