2 Hogsheads on Tomatin a distillery that we are huge fans of at Cadenheads.
malty, barley lofts and icing sugar. Pear skins, almond milk and honey.
More honey, with lemongrass, elderflower and caramel shortbread. Grape skins, olive oil and green bananas with touches of coconut and all spice.
Initial spice then growing floral notes along with marshmallows and salted popcorn.
Nose – Hard and young, lemon slices and cold apple, praline. Friable pastry, and just a tiny amount of crushed Fizzers. Maybe some ripe pear too.
Body – Much sweeter and cleaner than I was expecting, much fruitier and very delicious.
Finish – Medium, gently fruited with love hearts and lemonade.
A younger presentation but very interesting for it. A sweeping, peppery but sweet and refreshing delivery after the rather clumsy nose.
