Tomatin 18YO

What they say:

Introduced to the market in 2006, this malt has become a firm favourite among connoisseurs world wide. Cask matured in Re fill American Oak Casks and finished for 18 months in Spanish oak Oloroso sherry butts.

Tasting notes

Nose: The nose is intense. Delicious sweet sherry bursts upon you, and plateaus with undertones of apple, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup and a hint of smoky heather.
Taste: Sweet and honeyed at first, with an oaky edge. It develops in the mouth with a bite of citrus and dark chocolate.
Finish: The finish is long and lingering, with warming alcohol and smooth rich sherry, and it all keeps alive in the mouth for several moments afterwards. A world class single highland malt.

What I say:

Probably my favourite out of the range but then I’m a real sherry fan and chocoholic too.


Dark gold


Spiced fruit, sherry and nut, distinct fines [alcohol] aroma


Chocolate, nut and raisin, hint of plum and smoldering oak. MIneral elements of clay and copper.


Long, vaporous and alcoholic
