Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Medium-bodied and well-balanced. There are notes of toasted cereals and barley. Hints of winter spice and buttery pepper emanating from the toasty oak. Hints of dark sugar and cut flowers with a note of malt extract, rum and apple peel.

Palate: Good body and quite sweet. There are notes of fudge and dark sugar, winter spice and a touch of vinosity, notes of toffee apple and Bramley peel with notes of dried herbs.

Finish: Good length with notes of boiled sweets and fruity sweetness.

User Reviews of the Tomatin 12 Year Old (40%)

Nice and smooth

To start off, the bland color doesn't really appeal to me. But luckily, it doesn't indicate the quality of whisky. Sniffing some of the scent, I smell freshly cut grass and hints of oak wood. The taste is really friendly and easy going. No drama, no hotness, nice and smooth with fruity impressions such as juicy apples. The finish tends to get a bit more spikey and it doesn't hold back on the fruitiness. I have to agree with the review below me: it's kind of flat and monotone, but sometimes predictability works very well for me. (RB)

OK, but the depth of a blended scotch

When compared back-to-back with Aberlour 16 (one of my favorites) it's remarkable how much less of everything there is... less depth, less character and less change on the palate. The persons who described it as "light honey" are right. I was able to buy it in the states for $31 -- no complaints. I may keep one in the liquor cabinet just to make tasting more varied. Some will love the easy-drinking character.

Great flavors

I love the explosions of flavors from this single malt. One of my top choices for relaxing at the end of the day. I'm on my 2nd bottle and will continue to keep this one stocked in my "refreshment" cabinet.

Pleasantly surprised!

My local liquor store had this on sale, and I almost didn't buy it based on the reviews here...glad that my internal accountant won! For $30, I think this is a great value. It is undoubtedly "light," but do you always want a heavy dram? On the nose, I first had a very Old Pulteney-like whiff of brine. As it aired, tangerine (sweet citrus) grew and mixed for a salty, sweet citrusy aroma. A few minutes longer, and I smelled vanilla and toffee (and this is on no oxidation in the bottle). Taste was consistent with the nose, but adding cinnamon and other spices (maybe even pepper like jalapeño?). I occasionally tasted herbal notes (green tea?). Finish carried the vanilla. I had zero rubbing alcohol here. I can't wait to see what happens with this bottle over time and will definitely buy again. For reference - I'm generally unable to drink islay whiskys unless I want the sensation of licking burnt wood (bunnahabhain excepted), with my staple dram being glenmorangie (as I always trust I can drink that neat anytime, anywhere). We all have individual palates - this dram may be better suited for more sensitive types, especially newbies that find peated whiskies unpalatable.

the nose...not so nice.

The first thing that hit me was the smell. It was pretty bad. The taste was nice though. Not smooth, but it was okay. Not too impressive for a $56 bottle cdn at the LCBO. I would have gladly got a glennfitch or a glenlivet. If only oban 10 was cheaper here... :)

Liked It. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

Upon pouring myself a glass and without reading the label, I sipped and tasted many flavors; all finished off with a sherry aftertaste. It's a fruity, almost sweet flavor. Very good, the price made it better. Will definitely buy this again.

You get what you pay for.

This is exactly what I expected when paying for it. there is a subtle after taste that I can't put my finger on but other then that it's fine for the $ spent. decent decoy to keep your bourbon buddies off of your top shelf.

Tomatin 12

Not bad for what it is - a simple, no frills single malt. Honeyed nose, with some fruity hints. Slightly sweet, toasty oak palate, with a little harshness. Pleasant, light woody finish. For $30, I can think of better singles and blends, but this fits the bill.

What ?

For $24 here in Hawaii, this is a perfectly fine sherry whiskey. Only the Speyburn 10 is comparable in price. The Tomatin is a fine alternative.

A decent drop

A good session dram. Light and smooth with definite fruit notes. More interesting than the 15 I find.

11th December 2013

After taste not so good

Fantastic labeling. Great box design. Aftertaste reminded me of rubbing alcohol

5th December 2013

Not Great

Flavor was ok, but after taste was bad and really nothing special about it. After one glass I've had enough and can't see me ever getting another.

29th October 2013

Very good!

A truly very good single malt. Not at all in your face like some other whisky's, this one is very subtle and smooth. To the authors of the negative comments I urge you put down your of over smoked swill and open up a bottle of something you actually have to use your pallet for.

29th October 2013

Sub par for good whiskey or above average generic

If something is too good to be true... Well, you know, it is. I was looking for a new whiskey to try and this one caught my eye. I knew it wouldn't be great for $30, but I expected more. More expensive whiskey is smooth and this definitely is not. One may speak of notes of this and hints of that, but the finish was similar to the fumes of fueling a vehicle. I should have known, but I won't make the same mistake twice. Back to The MacAllan and Balvenie.

five star

cannot believe the blended comments?? obviously stuck in a time warp, excellent finish to an excellent whisky!!

Sorry Guys

Had a dram of this tonight - if I'd tasted this blind I'd have thought it was a high street blend.

I.M.P.R.E.S.I.V.E.

I had this many years ago, the 10 year old, and was rather impressed! I got a 5th of the 12 yr. old for $21.00 USD and I am very impressed! thius is 43% ABV and a single malt High Land that smells, taste & lingers like a Speyside! Price like The McClleland with the taste of The Mc.Allan!
