Customer Rating

A polished, mellow, very approachable Speysider, Tomatin was once the largest distillery in Scotland with 23 stills and a production capacity of 12 million litres of alcohol per year. These days capacity is down to 5 million litres, the majority of which goes into the delicious Antiquary blend. This sherry-finished version was relaunched in 2010 and is a noticeable improvement on the old 12yo.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by CLASS Magazine

    Appearance
    Clear, pale straw golden.

    Aroma
    Pita bread maltyness with white fruit, hints of subtle peatiness and floral honeysuckle.

    Taste
    Toasted bread maltyness, succulent pear and crisp apple fruit with just enough charcoal and peaty smokiness and dry nutty wood.

    Aftertaste
    More dry nutty notes emerge with subtle lingring peat smoke. Wonderfully rounded and flavoursome.

    Delicious. I love the fruity malty sherry influenced sweetness that evolves in to a woody nutty finish..... The no-age statement Legacy single malt (or now most recently renamed to Dualchas for come copyright snafu reason) is the first Tomatin experience I''ve had---love that stuff too.... This 12 year is a delectable follow up and am enjoying a bit on ice as I type this........

    I find this to be a first class single malt and well worth waiting for

    The tasting notes above are accurate, but I found this one a little out of balance: too much of that "bread maltyness" in the nose. Also maybe its because im used to drinking Laphroaig but I cant taste any peat in this. Not a bad dram but not something I would buy again. Tasting the 15 next (i got the sample pack).

    OK, fair play Jimbo.

    Alan, that would imply that it is a mix of bourbon matured and sherry matured whisky, which is not the case. This is bourbon-matured whisky which has been re-racked into sherry casks for a finishing period. So to call it a sherry finish is correct.

    Great whisky - I'd correct the details on the side where it says 'Cask Type' - it actually is both Sherry and Bourbon casks which really makes a huge difference.
