Tomatin releases 50 year old distillery bottling
One of our favourite whisky distilleries, Tomatin has today launched a highly anticipated single malt, the Tomatin 50 Year Old, distilled on 24th November 1967.
Following 50 years of maturation at the distillery in Scotland, the new drink has been bottled in its most natural form, yielding just 70 special bottles at 45.3% abv. Finished in a first fill Oloroso Sherry Butt, cask number 35817, the whiskey is encased within an individually numbered, handblown Glencairn crystal decanter. The decanter is luxuriously presented within a striking Italian crafted wooden box, furnished with soft, premium Italian leather. Sealed with a wooden transit cork, an engraved, solid brass gold-plated and glass stopper is also provided. Each box comes with an individually-numbered book, hand-signed by Distillery Manager, Graham Eunson. Finally, a premium leather carry bag completes the presentation.
The drink itself delivers rich and complex flavours. On the nose, aromas of freshly felled oak in an orchard of apples, pears and plums can be expected. Once on the palate, it releases bursts of exotic tropical fruits and dried apricots, sweetened with flavours of vanilla toffee, crème caramel and flame raisins. Spice and fruits balance perfectly, providing a luxurious and velvety finish.
Retailing at £10,000 and available at specialist retailers. Explore further at Tomatin.
