Tom’s Blend 18 Year
With years of developing (and drinking!) exceptional blended scotch under his belt, Tom wanted his signature blend to reflect what he loved in a whisky.
The result is a harmonious 18 year old blend comprising 50 per cent Single Malts: a wisp of smoke from Islay, rich notes from heavily sherried highland whiskies and some fruity Speyside from American Oak, in keeping with Tom’s particular tastes.
On the nose: Light nose prickle to start. Rich and mellow with layers of aroma – the top note is fruity (maraschino cherries, orange and lemon zest), with tablet in the middle. In time the tablet becomes crème brulée and a whiff of smoke emerges.. A mild, very mellow nose, dry overall.
On the palate: Gradually a hint of tablet, then crème brulée, followed by fondant.
