Tomatin 12 YO

In 2014, the Tomatin 12 Year Old was given an update and bottled at 43% ABV rather 40%, as it was previously. This core single malt from the ace distillery in the Highlands is finished for six-to-nine months in Oloroso Sherry casks before being bottled.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Buttery at first, but notes of cooked apple, raisin and almond soon emerge. There are resinous and floral hints as well as some chocolate.

Palate Oak-y vanilla and fresh mint, dotted with stem ginger, a touch of guava and dried orange peel.

Finish Currant buns, a hint of raspberry jam, barley.

Reviews for Tomatin 12 Year Old
Quality and value.
I am bemused by some of the negative reviews below. This is a very nice, well balanced, Highland Whisky, well worth the price. I wonder whether there are some counterfeit bottles out there.

Be aware of the very cheap !
I bought this bottle for his price point of D 1,750 ( = 27,- euro, 23,- pounds ) and I absolutely do not like it. Altough I read many positive reviews on this site, I do not find it in my tasting. Double matured in bourbon casks and for the last 9 months in Oloroso Sherry. Where is the sherry? On the nose I find red apple ( pink lady ) and some raisins but mostly a lot of alcohol. The palate is small better but still the alcohol is overpwering and this with only 43%. My conclusion is simple = this whisky is not balanced at all. Another lesson learned in whisky land, be aware of the very cheap offerings. Luckely there is still my Famous Grouse, which is even cheaper but so much better !

It seems stronger than 43%. Robust drop. Not much subtlety, but enough to ponder.

Nose is digestives, lemon, seaweed, plastic caramel.

Tongue is hot booze, pepper, subtle croissant sustaining. A bit of toffee and then Juicy Fruit at the very end, the length is okay.

A decent mid-agro knockabout, but it’s not joining the stable and I’m not sure when the bottle will be finished. Many better offerings at this price point.

Smooth enough but a bit too buttery for me

Would never purchase again!!
I'm a fifty year whiskey drinker. This is just ok. It tastes hot, it needs a lot of water to make it palatable, then it's to much. I feel like I wasted my money on this. I'm halfway through the bottle, it has been open 6 weeks. I'll be glad when I finish it.

Quite disappointed with this. I consider the Legacy offering by this company to be superior. Pleasing enough but not worth the money.

Strong Cost/Performance
Retail here in Japan is around $60, but I found it in a half-off promotion. I looked around and found it discounted in other retailers around.

Now that Japanese whisky prices are super inflated, this has got to be one best performing $30-$40 drams you can get.
