TOMATIN Five Virtues - Fire (70cl, 46%)
The Fire Edition
HEAVILY CHARRED OAK
6000 bottles available
The second phase of the cycle is exhibited through maturation of this edition in heavily charred oak casks which, having been fired before previous use, were stripped then re-fired stimulating new, fresh vanilla flavours.
Like devouring a sweetly satisfying baked apple pie with a light dusting of cinnamon. Creamy with some citrus zing, this edition is slightly dry with a delicate, spicy finish.
- Nose –Creamy butterscotch with citrus and winter spices.
- Taste –Sweet apple pie with a light dusting of cinnamon.
- Finish –Slightly dry with a delicate spicy finish.
The Five Virtues Series does not carry an age statement, however we aim to be as open and transparent as we are allowed to be under EU law.
Nose: Burnt sugar and fried banana. Hints of flamed orange peel (there may be some autosuggestion here, what with "FIRE" written on the bottle and all that).
Palate: Cinnamon sweeties, more citrus oils, a touch of creamy vanilla.
Finish: Drying and spicy.
