Matured for over 15 years in a combination of Bourbon barrels and Tempranillo wine casks, this whisky offers deep-fruity aromas softened by a sweet candy flavour with a long lasting and very creamy finish. Only 3,150 bottles produced.
Tomatin Distillery home of the finest Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, is located in the Monadhliath Mountains just south of Inverness, capital of the Highlands of Scotland. Established in 1897, Tomatin (to rhyme with satin) is also one of the highest distilleries in Scotland at 315 metres above sea level. The soft waters of the Alt-na-Frith (Free Burn) which run clear and pure through the Monadhliath Mountains help to create a Highland Malt with delicate flavours, yet a rich and mellow style. Its undoubted quality and consistency make for a truly fine dram. A proud testimony to the art of distilling.
Graham Eunson, Distillery Manager, explains how this new edition came to be: “I’ve always found the interaction between the casks and the whisky fascinating and this expression of Tomatin is no exception. The intensity of the wine casks is gently softened by the use of second fill ex-bourbons to achieve a perfect balance. The combination of flavours and aromas achieved by the use of these differing casks is fantastic. There’s always a sense of anticipation and excitement when you experience a potential new whisky for the first time and in this case, those emotions were well justified.”

Aroma: Deep fruity aromas are dominant with plums, blackberries and fresh grapefruit taking centre stage. Softens with hints of vanilla, tobacco leaves, beeswax and sugar candy.
Palate: The sweet candy flavour plays a major role in the overall structure of this single malt. Like the nose the palate is rewarded with some big fruity flavours – bananas, crunchy green apples and poached pears – which are nicely balanced with the drying tannins and white pepper.
Finish: Once the spiciness subsides the finish is long lasting and very creamy.
