Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is the 12 year old expression of Tomatin that populates their core range. A blend of bourbon and sherry maturation was used for this specific bottling. It's pretty ubiquitous, and not at all expensive, so let's give it a go.

  • Nose:

    Sweet honey, apples, almond. A fair bit more sherry than I was expecting, but nothing insane. Pears, vanilla, light amaretto, light baked bread.

  • Taste:

    Thin but no heat. Sweet honey, vanilla. Fresh baked bread. Pears, apples, almonds. Light sulfur. Not super complex, but pleasant.

  • Finish:

    Short, light, no heat. Sweet honey, light sherry funk. Yeasty sweetness, light fig, faint almond. Lots of vanilla.

  • Overall:

    Not amazing but far from bad. Solid and inexpensive.
