Review #1189 – Tomatin 15yr

Review #1189 | Scotch Review #403 – Tomatin 15

The Schtick: This is the 15 year old expression of Tomatin’s core range. Originally only available in duty free / travel retail formats, this expression now is also part of the core range, alongside the 12 and 18 and various 14yr finishes.

Distiller: Tomatin

Bottler: Tomatin

Selection: N/A

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: 15 Years

Nose: Sulphur, salt, pepper, light fresh bread. Honey, caramel, little bit of almond. Lot more wood influence here, less almond and bread.

Taste: Medium, mild heat. Lots of good sherry character – plums, honey, light fig. Faint berries. Some pepper, pipe tobacco, fresh baked bread.

Finish: Short, no real heat. Sulphur, oak, honey, vanilla.

Overall: Honestly, I was hoping for a big improvement over the 12 but I like it about the same.

Thanks for reading!
