Located on the eastern edge of the Monadhliath Mountains, Tomatin has a feeling of remoteness about it. Illicit stills are part of the history of whisky distilling in Scotland; as a distilling site, illicit or otherwise, Tomatin reaches back to the 15th Century when drovers, bringing their cattle over high mountain passes to the market at Tomatin, filled their flasks from a still at the Old Laird’s House, beside the current distillery buildings – perhaps the fore-runner to the current visitor centre!
Tomatin 36 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been vatted from a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks to create a delicious whisky released in small batches. Natural strength and color.
NOSE: Pear drops, ginger snaps, butterscotch, vanilla ice cream, sherry notes, milk chocolate.
PALATE: Woody and malty, less sweet than the nose, cloves and cardamom.
FINISH: Elegantly smooth and creamy with just a hint of spice.
