A 2016 replacement for the previous sherry-finished expression, this Tomatin 12 Year Old has been aged in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks.
Name: Tomatin 12 Year Old Scotch
Cask Finish: Ex Sherry & Ex Bourbon
Color: Amber Gold
Nose: Fruit and spices with green apple, cinnamon, nutmeg and lavender. Pretty green and grassy like being inside a fresh forest.
Palate: honey, Milk Chocolate, oranges, and lemon zest and some caramel and sherry. Very pleasant and mild, not much of a burn, a good amount of sweetness, but not much to the complexity.
Finish: A bit of a let down. Short with sherry, rye, and fresh cut grass. Falls short and does not leave a lasting impression.
Price: Around $29
