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

    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.

    This whisky does feel a bit immature, however I can't really complain based on the price. If you're looking for a nice daily drink that doesn't break the bank, then this is an option. I would add a bit of water to open it up a bit, as I am sure you will agree. Although this offering won't blow you away, it won't offend you either. If you have some extra money lying around, and you want to explore, this is a good try. I would purchase this whisky again in the future.

    I had a great first bottle! This brand was unknown to me, despite their long heritage. Tastes 3x the price. Or more.

    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.

    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!

    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........

    This is one fine tasting 12 year! Reasonably priced too! I always keep a bottle in stock.

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

  • 16 February 2013

    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.

  • 24 January 2011

    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.

  • 23 January 2011

    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.
