Tomatin 12 Year Old: Bourbon & Sherry Cask Aged Review

IMG_2132Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 86 Proof

We generally like to drink seasonally—sweet bourbon in the summer, smoky, peaty Scotch in the winter, and peppery rye in the transitional months. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rules, and variety is appreciated, so when we found this interesting looking bottle on sale at a local liquor store for around $30, we had to give it a try.

Tasting Notes

This is a good Scotch for people who don’t like Scotch, and excellent whisky for imbibing in the heat of the summer. From the nose we get hints of apricot and orange, that pick up a luscious honeyed sweetness on the palate. It goes down good and easy, with a bit of an astringent medicinal aftertaste if you let it breathe too long. Overall, we enjoyed it immensely, especially as a break from months of bourbon. At this price, it almost felt like a steal.
