Tomatin, 18 year old, 43%

Price: $60.00 Issue: Winter 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Fuller in body, deeper and more complex than the 12 year old (as would be expected). Sweeter fruits (honey-laced citrus, lemon gum drops, and ripe peach) and rum notes marry nicely with dried spice (cinnamon, vanilla, ginger). Calming finish. An intelligent use of sherry cask aging.
