Tomatin 1996 (bottled 2013) – Connoisseurs Choice , 46 % , £70 tomatin-1996-bottled-2013-connoisseurs-choice-gordon-macphail-whisky

Nose : creamy sweet vanilla on top of fried banana in caramel. Some citrus too to balance the sweetness and a hint of pear drops. Fresh.

Palate : oak wood, golden syrup and ripe banana,  melon and a touch of mango there is also some chocolate and a touch of tea leaves.

Finish : creamy vanilla. Dried banana and milk chocolate.

A fun dram, on the fruity (Exotic some will say) side, with vanilla, and citrus. great summer dram if you ask me. Good stuff all in all, though not something exceptional.

Score: 86/100
