Tomatin unveils limited edition 15-year old

by Becky Paskin

Tomatin Distillery has launched a new 15-year old single malt expression with a limited run of just 3,150 bottles.

Available for the global market, Tomatin's 15-year old Highland Single Malt has been created from both second fill Bourbon barrels and Tempranillo casks and has an abv of 52%. The distillery describes the expression as having a sweet candy flavour with robust green apple and poached pear notes, and a spicy yet creamy finish. Graham Eunson, Tomatin distillery manager, said: “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.” Tomatin 15-year old has an RRP of £49.99 (US$79.99).
