“The ongoing cask-strength addition to Tomatin’s core range. Aged in a combination of bourbon and oloroso-sherry casks, this allows the distillery’s spirit to shine through, along with notes of golden syrup, ginger, malt and marzipan.”
-The Whisky Exchange
The Cask Strength Edition is Tomatin’s most vivacious expression, yet still retains Tomatin’s characteristically rich and sweet undertones. Matured in a classic combination of first-fill ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks, aromas of golden syrup and ginger biscuits prevail while flavours of malt loaf and marzipan lead to a dry, lingering spicy finish.
The origins of whisky production in Tomatin are hard to be precise about – the formal distillery which operates today was established in 1897 but there is reason to believe that whisky production, albeit illegal, has been an important part of life in the area around Tomatin since the 1700s.
