Tomatin Cuatro Series #1 "Fino" 12 Year
Tomatin // Highlands, Scotland
The Tomatin Cuatro Series was released in September 2014 and features four Highland single malt expressions but finished in different types of sherry casks. All were distilled on the same day and matured for 9 years in traditional American oak casks. This first expression features Fino sherry, a generally young, white wine is most known for the layer of yeast called "flor" that protects the sherry from oxidation and develops with sufficient head room in the wine barrel. After 3 years finishing in these ex-Fino sherry butts, the whisky is bottled at 46% ABV.
