Tomatin Portuguese Collection 15YO Moscatel Cask Finish, 46% abv
Introducing The Portuguese Collection, a limited edition series dedicated to and inspired by Portuguese wines.
The Portuguese Collection expressions were each distilled on 8th September 2006 and laid down in traditional Scotch Whisky oak casks for over 8 years. On 23rd April 2015 the whisky was then moved into Tawny Port, Moscatel de Setubal and Madeira Wine casks for a further 7 years, resulting in a magnificent triad of single malt Scotch Whiskies.
The Port Edition showcases an initial aroma of Black Forest gateau with warm spices and deep forest fruits – blackberries, raspberries and cherries, but the sweeter notes of peach and apricot to finish.
The Moscatel Edition offers sweet aromas of marmalade, honey and salted caramel, combined with a hint of citrus balanced perfectly with ginger and star anise.
The Madeira Edition presents pronounced aromas of honey and lemon, which move into flavours of butterscotch and stewed apples – finishing on a treacle note.
