Tomatin

Posted 28 November 2017

Tomatin Cask Strength was released in 2015 and then swiftly rebranded into the new house style the following year. It’s a non-age statement bottling that has been matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon barrels and oloroso sherry casks. Whilst Tomatin are pretty generous with their ABV’s across the board, this one comes in true to its name at 57.7%.

Tomatin Legacy was launched in 2013 as the distillery’s entry-level non age statement whisky. It’s matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and then finished for around a year in virgin oak casks. When launched it’s RRP was £25.99, so it’s pleasing that in the four years hence, it has hardly increased for this reasonable entry point. You can find it on Master of Malt for £26.50.

The Dramble took a look at the Tomatin Core Range, as well as interviewed the distillery’s General Manager Graham Eunson at the end of last November. Little did we know, that at the exact same time, Royal Mile Whiskies were bottling up their own Tomatin – in the form of a single sherry cask – for release the week after our distillery feature and tasting notes. A chance trip into London resulted in a visit to the RMW store (close to Tottenham Court Road tube station) and a new Tomatin to add to our liquid library.  We’ve not seen anything written about this store exclusive release as yet, so, snowed in last week, we thought we’d get our chops into it.

Tomatin 12 year old is matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and then finished in Spanish sherry casks for between 6 to 9 months. It was rebranded towards the end of 2015 along with the rest of the Tomatin range into a new shaped bottle with a more contemporary logo and an earthy colour palate. All of the rebranded bottles now highlight the distillery’s tagline ‘The Softer Side of the Highlands since 1897’.

Tomatin 14 year old was originally launched in 2014. When the entire core range was rebranded, the labelling on this bottle was updated to highlight it’s port cask finish. It’s been matured for 13 years in ex-Bourbon barrels and then has been finished in tawny port pipes for an additional year. It can be yours for £53.83 from Master of Malt.

This 1988 Vintage is the third release in a series of expressions from that year. It’s been aged for 27 years, and includes a parcel of whisky that has been matured in first-fill Tawny port casks. It’s the first 1988 vintage to be bottled in the new Tomatin livery and updated glassware.
