Tomatin Decades II
Tomatin // Highlands, Scotland
This limited-edition single malt is a combination of whisky from 21 different casks selected from key years over the past five decades. The original Decades release, which first hit shelves in 2011, was intended as an homage to former Distillery Manager Douglas Campbell. Decades II is a tribute to the “generations of staff” that have worked for the brand. The casks used are as follows: 1970s: refill bourbon hogsheads; 1980s: finished in first fill oloroso sherry butts; 1990s: first fill bourbon barrels; 2000s: recharred verdejo wine barrels; 2010s: second fill French oak barrels. Only 3600 bottles produced. Announced in November 2019.
