Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Tomatin 12

Tomatin 12- Imagine that you ( as CEO)  just finished the year end accounting with your CFO, and to celebrate you have chosen this fine beverage.  Pour a generous glass , rock back in the boardroom and realize that perhaps all the extra effort and brilliant decision making seem worthwhile.  This perk is a malty highland scotch that commands your attention and rewards the sophisticated drinker.  Not for the faint of heart , or beginners, its spicy power is rich and full but is best enjoyed neat. It would be criminal to dilute the robust flavors that the distillery nutured for 12 full years. Gordon Gecko taught us that greed is good, but sharing is better , so offer up the second glass to a good friend. Now get back to work .  I rate this valued trustee a solid 8.5

    I just sat down with a freshly poured glass of Tomatin 12 with some ice. I was able to get a very good deal at a local shop and bought the bottle this afternoon. I must confess it is not as smooth as I would have liked. The spice as you say is rather strong, almost biting and I am a long time scotch man. As an everyday simple drink and not a special occasion scotch and for what I paid for it , it is indeed fine. But compared to the 16 yr old Lagavulan or the Johnny Walker Black I say do not bother. There is better out there.
    If I may offer up a favorite of mine for you to try. It is a bottle of the GlenRothes, you will be amazed it is a rare and affordable and very smooth scotch. I look forward to your review.
