Tomatin // Highlands, Scotland
Tomatin released this whisky to honor the "legacy" between the distillery and its nearby community. Prior to 1897, when the distillery opened, Tomatin was just a small and isolated village of scattered farms. The distillery helped fund new construction to house its workforce, which helped develop the nearby community. This whisky celebrates the relationship between both the Tomatin distillery and the village of Tomatin. In the US, this is sold as Tomatin Dualchas.
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 TypeBourbon and Virgin Oak
"A vanilla and malty start, with green and exotic fruits on the nose. Somewhat spirity, but nevertheless pleasing. The palate displays oak shavings, pineapple and an attractive vanilla sweetness with a hint of white pepper. Slightly dry and bitter finish."
