Scotch Single Malt - Highland - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
What's in a name? Tomatin 15 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Tomatin 15 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Gentle, balanced with orchard fruits, oak, blossom, orange too, creamy vanilla, toffee.
Palate: Creamy and soft with a prominence of fruit and malt. Balanced, some toffee, caramel, citrus.
Finish: A long, soft finish.
I picked this up after finishing a bottle of the 12. I preferred the 12 but this is good nonetheless.

Absolutely a joy to drink!
I'm a big fan of a more subtle whisky and this really hits the spot.
Light with mild citrus, fruit and cream influences. With a super soft finish this definitely one for the straight whisky drinker!

Absolutely marvellous. A typical bourbon barrels whisky, showing tremendous interplay between spirit and white oak. Superb complexity yet fresh!!!
