Although Tomatin 12 is classified as Highland Single Malt, its smell and taste is rather comparable to classic Speyside whiskies. The nose is sweet and mildly fruity with apple puree, vanilla cream and honey, whereas subdued sherry notes linger in the background. A surprisingly intense arrival with spices, baked apple and caramel is followed by rich maltiness and nutty notes. Bittersweet chocolate characterizes the soft and moderately long finish. Altogether, a respectable but unimposing whisky that is reasonably complex and not too demanding.
