Tomatin adds Sherry cask to core range

Highland distillery Tomatin has created a version of its 12-year-old single malt that has been aged in Sherry casks.

Launched yesterday (20 May), the whisky was exclusively matured in Sherry casks and bottled at 40% ABV.

Scott Adamson, Tomatin blender and global brand ambassador, said: “The global demand for well-matured Sherried malts, particularly in markets like Asia, has inspired this latest addition to our core range.

“Tomatin has a unique ability to balance tradition with innovation, embracing our time-honoured techniques and contemporary practices to push the boundaries of flavour exploration.

“For over a century, Tomatin has featured Sherry casks in our maturation process, and this new release stands as the next evolution of this tradition.

“Our 12-Year-Old Sherry Cask captures the essence of our renowned 12-Year-Old, enhancing its signature smoothness and focusing its aromatic profile to create a Sherry cask whisky with a depth of flavour that is luxuriously indulgent.”

The expression offers ‘sweet aromas of caramelised apple and sweet pears’ on the nose, followed by ‘velvety chocolate fudge, golden manuka honey and the crunch of dried fruit and nuts’ on the palate, with a ‘lingering’ finish.

The whisky is priced at RRP £52 (US$66) and is available from Tomatin’s website and specialist retailers.

As well as its core range of six whiskies, Tomatin creates Cù Bòcan and distributes Japanese whisky Shirakawa.

In 2022, Tomatin created a film to celebrate its 125th anniversary.
