Dean’s, makers of short bread and biscuits, have teamed up with Tomatin to produce the Tomatin single malt whisky fruit cake. I’m lucky enough to have tried it with a shot of the whisky.
What should a fruit cake be like? I like mine dense and rich, sweet rather than sour with fruit. Dean’s Tomatin singe malt whisky fruit cake is just that. It’s fragrant with whisky and orange and has a dense crumb that manages not to be dry. The fruit it plump and glistening and there’s so much of it!
I enjoyed my cake with a cup of espresso and a glass of Tomatin Legacy 12 year-old. It was a wonderful treat: gorgeous, rich cake, sharp, dark coffee and the sweet vanilla and citrus flavours of the whisky joined together beautifully. It’s great on a Sunday afternoon and would make a lovely end to a good dinner.
The cake comes in a rather attractive cask-inspired container so it also makes a great gift. Especially with a mini of the whisky on the side. Of course, you don’t have to have to drink the whisky to enjoy the cake but I’d recommend it. They are made for each other.
