- Tomatin 12 Year Old
Tomatin 12 Year Old Highland single malt Scotch whisky. Matured in 1st fill bourbon barrels, refill American oak casks and Spanish sherry butts. The 12 year old is married exclusively in Spanish sherry butts prior to bottling.
Nose: A complex, fresh and airy bouquet which contains rich malt and fruity aromas with a hint of peatiness.
Palate: The palate is rewarded with a unique combination of attractive flavours – a balance of apples, pears and malt with a gentle hint of nuttiness introduced by the subtle use of sherry wood. Very smooth and silky.
Finish: A wonderfully rich and elegant taste produces a long and satisfying finish; there is an oily richness which leads to a desire for more.
