Tomatin 40yo

Tomatin 40yo 42.9%
Distilled 17 May 1967, bottled 2 September 2007

A vatting of 7 hogsheads

Nose: fresh tropical fruits, some candied sweetness. You know instantly you are nosing and old and delicate whisky. Faintest hint of peat, oriental spices, passion fruit mixed with pineapple

Palate : Spicy woods, delicate fruitness, feel-good old whisky

Finish : Medium and prickly

Rating 90/100

This is a very typical low strength old whisky. With the final strength being 42.9% I wonder what the lowest strength cask going into this were
