Did a vertical tasting of the Tomatin 12, 15 and 18 in one evening and to my surprise, I liked the 12 best! ( will do a second tasting of them all independently though just to be sure). Took plenty of time between tastings and cleansed the palate as well to ensure one didn't influence the other...here's what I got:Surprisingly minimal alcohol on the nose for a 43% ABV I thought. I got a marzipan-ish, dried fruit (dates) and sweet honey aroma with the palate yielding all the same. Finish was mild, sweet and smooth and was medium in length. Tried again with a splash of distilled water as well (as this was the first tasting) and found that overall, water didn't do much to this dram so I will drink it neat. (FYI - water DID do more to open up the 15 & 18 year olds... at least for me.)

Low priced 12 YO. The nose is harsh and chemically. It does make a good whiskey and soda. For the price it would be a good everyday scotch and soda whiskey.
