Tomatin, located in the Monadhliath Mountains just south of Inverness, is also one of the highest distilleries in Scotland at 315 meters above sea level, has released several new expressions recently that bear examining and tasting.
Tomatin, 18 year old: $60
This is a new expression of the distillery's 18-year old, bottled at higher alcohol level than its predecessors. Taste notes: toffee, maple, dates, toasted walnuts, very ripe fruit, cocoa.
Tomatin, 15 Year Old: $46
Aged conventionally in American Bourbon casks, the flavor profile is round and constant with peaches, citrus and vanilla shining through. It's a fairly gentle taste and finish, and I'd recommend it without water, but also as an interesting mixer, especially with apple spirits and a mint garnish.
The distillery has also bottled two new single-cask expressions and one limited edition.
