Aroma - Delicious sweet sherry bursts up you, and plateaus with undertones of fresh apples, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup and a hint of smoky heather. Palate – Sweet and honeyed at first, with an oaky edge. Develops in the mouth with a bite of citrus and a hint of dark chocolate. Finish – The finish is long and lingering, with warming alcohol and smooth rich sherry, and it all keeps the mouth alive for several moments after. A world class single highland malt.
Malt Advocate 88 points - A new, beefed-up version of the 18 year old, with a higher alcohol level and (seemingly) more sherry influence. I must say that I really enjoyed the previous expression, rating it an 87 for its roundness and elegance. I like this one too, and its bold demeanor. Whether you like it or its predecessor comes down to preference and mood. Notes of toffee apple, pancakes drizzled with maple syrup, date nut cake, ripe fruit, and roasted nuts, all dusted with cinnamon, vanilla, and cocoa. (Summer 2010) Reviewed by: John Hansell  (Aug 2010)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - Wonderfully generous and complex offering scents of sweet Sherry, baked apples, cinnamon, and dark chocolate with accents of smoke and wild flowers. Silky and long lived on the palate with a beautiful marriage of orchard fruits, malt, and baking spices. (Mar 2012)

Located on the eastern edge of the Monadhliath Mountains, Tomatin has a feeling of remoteness about it. Illicit stills are part of the history of whisky distilling in Scotland; as a distilling site, illicit or otherwise, Tomatin reaches back to the 15th Century when drovers, bringing their cattle over high mountain passes to the market at Tomatin, filled their flasks from a still at the Old Laird’s House, beside the current distillery buildings – perhaps the fore-runner to the current visitor centre! A formal distillery was commissioned on the site in 1897, and at 315 metres above sea level it is one of the highest in the country. In 1985 the Distillery was re-established as The Tomatin Distillery Co Ltd and secured the future of whisky distilling in the Monadhliath hills. Tomatin now operates 12 stills, and in 2007 produced 2.5 million litres. All whisky distilling requires good water. At Tomatin the Alt-na Frith (Free Burn), which springs up deep within the Monadhliath Mountains, supplies us with as much as we need. This water is combined with top quality barley, and traditional techniques are employed in all 4 stages of the distilling process – malting, mashing, fermentation and distillation. Traditionally our whisky has been used to provide fillings for the major blended whiskies in Scotland, but the emphasis now is very much on the Company own brands, first class malt and blended whiskies which have all won major international awards.
