Raided Score: 87 Publication: Whisky Advocate Excerpt: Calming finish. An intelligent use of sherry cask aging. Read Full Review Raided Score: 88 Publication: Distiller Excerpt: There is a smoky and spiced quality to the whisky, but the lingering dried fruits help to balance things out at the end. Bonus points for good value to cost ratio. Read Full Review Raided Score: 85 Publication: The Whiskey Jug Excerpt: An oddly good malt. I’m not hating this, but it’s so weird. It’s like drinking a shotgun of flavor from a boardwalk candy shop… and I kinda like it. Read Full Review Raided Score: 85 Publication: whiskyfun Excerpt: Very drinkable, good quality malt whisky. Good fuel for the tumbler. I think the strength works well here. Read Full Review Raided Score: 91 Publication: Drinkhacker Excerpt: Big whisky, with lots to like once the odd nose blows away, revealing more of a honey character. Amazing value for an 18 year old whisky. Read Full Review Raided Score: 88 Publication: Whiskey Raiders Excerpt: Skip the 12 and the 15. Buy this instead and drink half as much. Remarkable improvements over the other two. Good stuff. Read Full Review

This is the 18 year old expression of Tomatin's core range. Initially matured in bourbon, it is moved to Oloroso sherry butts for finishing.
Rich honey, figs, apples, dates, cherry and currant. Really rich sherry notes here. Moist pipe tobacco. Honey, amaretto, vanilla.
Medium, no heat. Rich sweet sherry. This is what I was hoping for in previous expressions. Musty pipe tobacco. Currant, blackberry, light earthiness. Faint cocoa, light pepper. The sherry here is quite apparent compared to the 12 and 15.
Long, sweet, rich. Honey, almonds, figs, currant, musty sweetness. Tobacco is really apparent.
Skip the 12 and the 15. Buy this instead and drink half as much. Remarkable improvements over the other two. Good stuff.
