The Tomatin 14-yo is just not fair… It’s just TOO good.  
 
There is not even a freeway off-ramp for the little town of Tomatin. But that’s OK, keeps the city-folk out. The entire population is less than 200, and since their founding in 1897, Tomatin Distillery has had to build special housing on site for employees who come from the surrounding countryside to work seasonally at the plant. But back in the 1970s, this little hamlet produced more Whisky than anyplace else in Scotland. Well, that’s no longer true, but their Highland Single Malt is still a core component of many of the finest blends, including two of their own: Antiquary and Talisman
 
Today, Tomatin is owned by mega-corp Takara Shuzo from Japan, where demand for their products is huge. But they stab off a select amount of their production for their own signature Single Malt Whisky line across a range of ages and special editions.
 
The Tomatin 14YO is just not fair… not fair we say! It is just TOO good. This is a powerful, 46% ABV bottle of Highland Single Malt perfection. All the elements are there… more than 12 years aging in ex-Bourbon casks, followed by 18 months in Port pipes. I mean, what else do you need to know, right? 
 
Tomatin always does a good job, but this one just speaks to us. It tastes like they have been making it for generations, but the 14YO Port Wood Finish was only added to their core lineup a few years ago. But it’s a keeper. And it fits right in with The Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, The Macallan, and The Balvenie Double Wood — so if you like those, you should like the Tomatin too. But the Tomatin 14YO is served up and tastes every inch of its stronger 46% ABV, so the flavors seem to explode in the mouth in all the best ways.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
