Review #320. Tomatin Cask Strength

Review 320: Tomatin Cask Strength

Whiskey Network Review #320 | /r/Scotch Review #133 – Tomatin 12yr Cask Strength, 106pf | 53.0% ABV

Age: 12 Years

ABV: 53.0%

Maturation: Sherry finishing (varietal unknown)

Nose: Honey, sherry, malty dough, creamy, mild tobacco and musty attic. Very pleasant, obviously sherry finishing or refill m aturation from the mildness of the notes and the nice integration.

Taste: Sweet granny smith apples, pears vanilla. Honey cream and faint sherry notes. There’s lots of pleasant toffee and caramel also.

Finish: Medium in length, sharp but not too hot. Still sweet and creamy. Good deal of toffee and light tobacco with lots of fruit.

Overall: It’s very good. Sweet and well beyond regular Tomatin, which, I think will spoil the regular offering for me. This is light years ahead. For reference, regular Tomatin 12yr scores a Rank 4 in my book. This will command a Rank 6.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
