The French Collection exhibits the unique influence imparted by different types of French Wine & Spirits casks in an exceptional showcase. The whisky, distilled in 2008, was laid down in traditional Scotch Whisky oak casks before being moved into Monbazillac, Sauternes, Rivesaltes and Cognac casks for its final maturation, resulting in a magnificent collection.
“Part of Tomatin’s French Collection, which was launched in mid-2021 and explores a variety of cask finishes featuring French wines and spirits, this 12-year-old single malt has enjoyed a slumber in casks that previously held Monbazillac. It’s a type of sweet wine produced in southwest France, and it has imparted plenty of ripe fruit notes alongside subtly chocolatey notes to this expression.”
-Master of Malt
Distilled on 25th April 2008, this whisky’s aroma dances between notes of dark, maple syrup and intense espresso, balanced with cinnamon baked apples. On the palate, there is a sweet cereal flavour combined with sweet milk chocolate and honeycomb ahead of subtle spices and emerging nutty flavours. The finish is rich with walnut and maple syrup.
