Tomatin Cask Strength 70cl 57.5°
Aged in a classic combination of first-fill bourbon casks and Oloroso sherry casks, this Cask Strenght version of Tomatin has nice aromas of ginger biscuits, malt and almond paste, followed by a long finish, persistent and spicy.
This is undoubtedly one of the most intense expressions of the range. However, it is marked by sweetness and richness, two important characteristics of the Tomatin distillery.
The Tomatin range has a strong identity thanks to all the know-how developed over the centuries by the distillery. It was considered in the 1970's as the largest distillery in Scotland, with a capacity of 12 million liters. Today the facilities are voluntarily more modest to achieve the following aim: to create the first range of Scottish whiskies with a soft and refined range, characteristics not really common to the other great classics of the Highlands.

The Tomatin distillery is located on the eastern border of the Monadhliath Mountains, 315 above sea level.
The distillery was established officially in 1897 but as soon as the 15th century illegal distilling was taking place in Tomatin. The spirits were bought by cowherds bringing their cows from the highest mountain peaks to Tomatin. The distilling activities attracted many customers and transformed the calm and remote Tomatin into a vibrant village.
In 1985 only Tomatin Co Ltd was established as a distillery, securing a bright future for whisky distillation in the Monadhliath Mountains. Tomatin produces each year around 5 000 000 liters of whisky with its 12 stills, ranking Tomatin in the main distilleries of Scotland.
