Tomatin Cuatro Series #3 "Oloroso" 12 Year
Tomatin // Highlands, Scotland
The Cuatro Series from Highland Scotch producer, Tomatin, was released in September 2014 and features four sherry cask-finished expressions. Each was distilled on the same day and initially matured in traditional American oak casks (read, ex-bourbon) for 9 years. This third expression in the series was finished for an additional 3 years in Oloroso sherry butts. Meaning "scented" in Spanish, Oloroso is produced though oxidative aging where the sherry is exposed to air due to the combination of slightly porous oak barrels and the lack of flor yeast that is naturally suppressed during fortification. Bottled at 46% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
