Tomatin 12 Year Single Malt Scotch
Nestled in the Monadhliath Mountains just south of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands lies the Tomatin Distillery. The high elevation allows for a very subtle maturation of its whiskeys as temperatures do not fluctuate greatly, imbueing the spirits with a amazing delicate character. The Tomatin 12yearis matured for 11 years in Bourbon barrels and the last 9 months in Oloroso Sherry barrels. This light influence of Sherry coats the whisky in a smooth, velvety texture. The aroma is of malt, rose petal, and honeysuckle. In the mouth it shows yellow fruits of pear and apple with an almond-like nuttiness from the Sherry. This is a perfect starting point for someone who is interested in learning about single malts as this is a true single malt at an amazing price point of $29.98 750ml.
