Tomatin Five Virtues Series Water Edition
Tomatin // Highlands, Scotland
Tomatin Water is part of the Five Virtues Series, which also consists of Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal. These are the elements central to the age-old process employed by the Tomatin distillery workers. Tomatin Water is an homage to the Alt-na-Frith burn, the private water source of the distillery. The whisky matured in sherry hogsheads and 2nd fill bourbon casks.
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.
Cask TypeEx-Sherry, 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon
"Very pleasant, yet intense sherry influence. Fresh and vibrant at first, with citrus taking center stage, before sweeter notes take over, like honeycomb and caramel. The palate has some interesting coffee flavors, and is somewhat bitter because of it. Lingering dark chocolate."
