Tomatin 15y! The second review of Tomatin month is their 15y expression. Where the other two are aged in sherry barrels, this bottle is aged in standard scotch whisky barrels made from American oak. During the review of the 12y I went off on a bit of a tangent about brand loyalty and community and
Welcome to Tomatin Month at iScotch. What? you say. Is this some kind of sponsorship jam? Nope! Just found this sampler at the liquor store in the Calgary airport and Dan & I rattled off three reviews and a BattleScotch in an evening. So here we go! Up first we have the Tomatin Spanish Sherry
Always a good day when a new Innis & Gunn shows up at the LCBO. And as much as we curse the Box Tax, they sure help take a decent picture. This time around it’s the Limited Edition Highland Ale, a golden brew steeped for 30 days with oak from a “famous” highland 18y single

BattleScotch! Highland Park stablemates 10y and 12y duke it out in the opposite of last BattleScotch’s Terrible Bourbon-Off event! Because we had to wash that taste out of our mouths somehow. Wait, wasn’t Terrbl Borbanov the Chancellor of the Politburo? Probably. Anyway, he’s how it went down: smell Goran – 12y Ryan – 12y Simon
What a pleasant surprise. Clocking in $15 cheaper than the excellent 12y, the Highland Park 10y is a welcome addition to the $45-60 range. While it tastes young, the pedigree is there. I would give you a link to the specific expression, but their website makes no mention of it. smell Dan – peat, coffee,
