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.
Buttery at first, but notes of raisin and almond soon take over.
Oak-y vanilla and fresh mint, dotted with stem ginger and dried orange peel.
Currant buns, a hint of raspberry jam, barley.
Not complex. Easy dram to drink.
