Tomatin 12 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by CLASS Magazine
Clear, pale straw golden.
Pita bread maltyness with white fruit, hints of subtle peatiness and floral honeysuckle.
Toasted bread maltyness, succulent pear and crisp apple fruit with just enough charcoal and peaty smokiness and dry nutty wood.
More dry nutty notes emerge with subtle lingring peat smoke. Wonderfully rounded and flavoursome.

I had a great first bottle! This brand was unknown to me, despite their long heritage. Tastes 3x the price. Or more.
Excellent for the money
I enjoy Tomatin. Very flavorful, and fruit notes. It is my daily drink as well.
Malty honey sweetness with a hint of fruit in the nose. Clean pleasant finish. Great introductory scotch, and a bargain for those who want a good quality malt at a great price. My daily drink.
I agree with the last entry. This is a fantastic mixer. I will always have it on hand for mixing. Ideal with Drambuie & cola. I am not fond of it on its own.
Saw this on a shelf of a store while traveling. 12 year single malt for this price? Yes, please! But after trying, it tastes like a much more immature scotch... basically a somewhat nicer but more costly Famous Grouse. It strangely sits between being a premium mixer and just ok on its own. Everything about the taste just misses for me and there''s much better whiskey choices in this price range. It''s worth a try but it just doesn''t have anything to make it a go-to sipper.
I''ve tried a fair amount of whiskey and this is a pretty good and for $the price it has a lot to offer. It is sweet, slightly peaty and nutty. I''d be hard pressed to find a better value out there. Good scotch just doesn''t get much cheaper.
I love it
Great single malt, especially for the price. I found it quite sweet, so I would suggest this as a starter or finishing taste if you''re exploring a few Scotches in one sitting. For a comparison, I would liken this to the Balvenie 12-year Double Wood.
Deceptively good whisky that always surprises on how eminently drinkable it is. Not the most complex but then you don''t always want that. Good value too!
