A lovely example of a blended whisky by the guys and gals at Tomatin, this 12 Year Old whisky has some lovely soft notes and plenty of flavour and character without being overpowering.
Furthering my month of Blended whisky i had persuaded the guys from the #12dramsofxmas blind tastings to go along with #12blends.
It's been obvious that i've had a real love of Tomatin whisky recently and when i got wind of this Cù Bòcan release i really did get a bit excited.
The second release from the Cù Bòcan from Tomatin distillery, this 1989 vintage peated variant really is a cracker.
I've been playing catch up with my whisky samples and drinking bottles for a while now and finally managed to catch up on this Cù Bòcan Virgin Oak from Tomatin.
I get asked a lot what my favourite whisky is, and to be honest it's such a difficult question, but i'd be happy to mention this distillery when saying ones that are on my Yes Please list.
Tasted at Glasgow's Whisky Club's Tomatin Night, this is the Tomatin 12
Part of a wee series of Burns Malt single cask bottlings from The Whisky Barrel this is the Tomatin 12yr Burns Malt.
One of the latest additions to the Tomatin range this is the 14 year old port finish.
The second of a couple of reviews of Single Cask whisky releases by the Royal Mile Whiskies group, meaning they are available from either Royal Mile Whiskies or Drinkmonger stores or online.
It wasn't long ago that i posted the article looking for people interested in my 12 Drams of Xmas idea
I’ve always had a bit of a thing for Tomatin, it’s a distillery that I really enjoy, it tends to sit on the lighter side with lots of fruits and vanilla, so a Moscatel wine cask finish sounds really interesting
My first review for the website of a Tomatin Whisky and i have to go and pick a cracker for it.
Carn Mor, the range of independent bottlings from Morrison Mackay have seen a number of versions, there's the Strictly limited range, the celebration of the cask range and there was the 20cl bottles from the Vintage collection and thats where this Tomatin 1987 comes from.
Back in October last year when i toured Tomatin distillery (see post here) as a competition winner, I not only had a brilliant day out but also came away with a wee extra.
Anyone who knows me, knows that i have a real fondness for port matured or port finished whiskies and this is no different as this 1988 vintage port finish which has been added to the Tomatin core ran
Thanks to Johnnie (@JohnnieStumbler) from The Nosing Arse blog for this sample of 1991 Tomatin from Berry Bros and Rudd.
More from the Gordon and MacPhail Wood Makes the Whisky campaign this time a 1997 Tomatin from the Connoisseurs Choice range this is one I was really looking forward to trying.
Back around the early part of 2014 I seen a review of this Island of Fidra Tomatin on Barry's (@thewhiskyphiles) The Whisky Philes blog and really fancied i and so it became one of the fabulous bottle
Thanks to Ben (@ben_cops) from Bens Whisky blog for spotting this 19 year old Tomatin from Cadenhead's which we split and sent our friend Steve (@steveprentice) a wee dram of.
