Tomatin 36yo Batch#7 700mlDouble Gold 2019 San Francisco WSC
Silver 2018 San Francisco WSC
Another brill batch of incredible well-matured whisky from the Tomatin Distillery up in the Highlands! This expression has aged for a huge 36 years, which was plenty of time for its flavour profile to develop and mature. Of course, such a whisky deserved to be well-presented, so this one comes with a presentation box, as well as a snazzy case!
The Tomatin Distillery was established in 1897 and was better known as Tomatin Spey Distillery Co. Ltd. The distillery went bankrupt in 1906 but it was then reopened in 1909. It managed to produce whisky till 1986 before being bought over by a Japanese company Takara Shuzo and at this time it was renamed Tomatin Distillery Co Ltd. This distillery is a massive operation producing around 2 and a half million litres of spirit each year but it has the capacity to produce 5 million litres. Most of the whisky produced at Tomatin goes into blended whisky which consist of their own brands named Antiquary and Talisman. This distillery though wants to be know for its single malt whisky, and have stepped up their game in this area.Tasting Notes
