Tomatin, 14 Years Old, Port Wood Finish, 46% abv.


Tomatin 14, Port Wood Finish, 46% abv.

Matured for 13 years in bourbon barrels before being finished for about a year or year and a half in Portugese tawny port pipes. This offering was added to the core in 2014 but there seem to be two bottlings, of which I am perhaps drinking from the older, less designer-influenced, bottling.

Nose: very floral, light wine flavors, fruity wood,
Palate: light, some old oak, a hint of that old steamed lotus leaf is coming up. No smoke, no fruits.
Finish: short, dry, no flavors come to the fore.

I never would thought this bottle was port finished! Seemed light overall, with no particular flavor or aroma making an impact.

Grade: C-
