  • Excerpt: A very easy but very good malt, well above the rather mundane 12yo OB. Has something of a high-end blend. Excellent value for money in any case.

  • Excerpt: More of a journeyman whisky than even the 12 Year Old. Perfectly serviceable, but I can understand the phase-out.

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 15 year old expression of Tomatin's core range. Originally only available in duty free / travel retail formats, this expression now is also part of the core range, alongside the 12 and 18 and various 14yr finishes.

  • Nose:

    Sulphur, salt, pepper, light fresh bread. Honey, caramel, little bit of almond. Lot more wood influence here, less almond and bread.

  • Taste:

    Medium, mild heat. Lots of good sherry character - plums, honey, light fig. Faint berries. Some pepper, pipe tobacco, fresh baked bread.

  • Finish:

    Short, no real heat. Sulphur, oak, honey, vanilla.

  • Overall:

    Honestly, I was hoping for a big improvement over the 12 but I like it about the same.

  • Score:

    5
