Tomatin

Tomatin 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Simple and straight forward but well composed and enjoyable. A reliable, solid, malt. I always enjoy it.

Tomatin 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 More delicate than I remember.

Tomatin 12 Years Old, 1997 Single Cask #4326
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.10%
7 Lovely texture. The nose is a bit shy, the palate more expressive. Very correct but not terribly exciting.

Tomatin 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Robust enough to hold its own after a lavish dessert – a choice worth considering if holding a little evening soirée.

Tomatin 15 Years OId
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
3 Nothing wrong but surprisingly, nothing exciting. Because it is unidimensional maybe. You are expecting another aromatic layer and it does not come.

Tomatin 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
6 Lacks balance.

Tomatin 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 The nose is appealing but the sherry makes the palate a bit dour. Would certainly warm you up on a frosty morning.

Tomatin 1962
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.20%
7 High maintenance. Beneath that sleek exterior beats a hard, one dimensional heart.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Tomatin 1967 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.90%
8 A fantastic mature dram. A revelation.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Tomatin 1976 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.30%
8 Real character and finesse.

Tomatin 1984
- Scotland - 22.00%
7 Maybe lacks the extra spark that makes it complex but a delicious sweet dram nonetheless

Tomatin 1991 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.80%
7 A pleasant dram. A touch of water brings out a refined oak frame and beeswax. A kind of spicy fruit salad.

Tomatin 1999 Tempranillo Single Cask #29457
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.10%
6 The musty/butyric note exacerbated by the alcoholic bite, does not make an appealing concoction.

Tomatin 21 Years Old 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.00%
7 The cask has left a dour print on this whisky. Too grumpy for me.

Tomatin 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Reminds of an Irish whiskey! So much exotic fruit and flowering currant. A big character. Not on the sweet side. Which is not a defect.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Tomatin 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Whisky of the month, by a slender margin. This is refined and just the right age. A good eye (and palate) put this beauty together.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Tomatin 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Elegant, intricate and enticing. Mozart with the depth of Beethoven and the agile touch of Liszt?

Tomatin Cù Bòcan, 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.20%
8 Rather delicious. A good, strong peaty offering with real personality.

Tomatin Decades
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A well balanced dram. With a good malty heart.

Tomatin Legacy
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
3 A surprising dram. There is plenty of fruit but also, a spirit feel although it is not strong. Just as the cask had not given much. But the colour is not pale… Well? It tastes young anyway.

Tomatin Tempranillo & Bourbon Matured 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.00%
7 The nose is slightly austere but the palate delivers rich fruity flavours elegantly framed by oak.

Mackillop's Choice Tomatin 1975, Cask 4
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.20%
7 Perhaps because the distillery was built to make quantity, as a filler, the industry seems universally – but unfairly – to deny the possibility of Tomatin making a truly interesting single. I coul...

Old Malt Cask Tomatin
- Scotland - 50.00%
7 Lovely. Has retained freshness (or taken a long time to get here.

Scott's Selection Tomatin 1988 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.60%
7 A dram which needs time to open. Good balance, some complexity and firm body.

Scott's Selection Tomatin 1993
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00%
7 Quite a limited palate, but really pleasant enough.
