Tomatin Single Malt Celebrates 125 Years With Two New Limited Edition Expressions

| June 23, 2022

Scotland’s Tomatin Single Malt recently announced two new limited edition expressions, released in celebration of the distillery’s 125th anniversary.

A statement from the distiller said that the two rare casks were specially chosen as Tomatin’s official anniversary bottlings from the distillery, which opened 125 years ago in June of 1897.

The first is a 1993 single malt Scotch whisky cask selected by Master Distiller Graham Eunson. Similar to the type of cask that would have been used in 1897, the distiller’s notes show this cask’s whisky is rich in color, the nose is initially soft then, on the palate, it has a punch of flavor from the Oloroso Sherry cask it was matured in.

The second expression is a 50-year-old single cask (retail price of £17,500) which was bottled on this recent anniversary in its natural form, yielding only 125 bottles, one for each year of the distillery’s existence.

Presented in a hand blown Glencairn Crystal decanter and luxury box, the limited expression is accompanied by a limited edition, hand-numbered book signed by Graham Eunson.

This single malt liquid itself is said by the brand to be sweet, full of aromas of dried tropical fruits, and a mix of nuts, dark chocolate and honey.

The two limited single casks accompany a limited edition carton which has been produced for the company’s longest-standing malt within their core range, the 12 Year Old, and was designed by Scottish illustrator Emily Hogarth.

Tomatin’s Master Distiller, Eunson, said they are “incredibly proud of the thriving community we have built around the inimitable craft of whisky making. The distillery is a very special place and, even after 125 years, remains committed to producing the finest quality whisky that Scotland can be proud of.”
