Situated over 1,000 feet above sea level in the foothills of the Monadhliath Mountains, Tomatin Distillery is one of the highest distilleries in Scotland. Its origins date back to the 15th century when drivers, bringing their cattle over the high mountain passes to the Tomatin market, filled their flasks from a still hidden at the Old Laird's House, which is situated adjacent to the distillery. Since that time, centuries of isolation and generations of family tradition (some workers at the distillery are the fifth generation of their family to work there) have created a distillery rooted in Scottish heritage and tradition. Tomatin Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from plump, Scottish barley. After the barley is harvested, it is mashed and fermented before being distilled twice through Tomatin's copper-pot stills. The stills have a round, flat shape that gives the whisky a rounder and sweeter flavor profile. The distillery has produced several beautiful whiskies, full of character, including their distinguished 25 year. This expression is one of three batches in this Tomatin 1988 series. This vintage is from April of 2014, vatted from a combination of traditional oak casks and some of the finest ex-Tawny Port pipes, for a sweet and fresh spirit that smells like “breakfast in a glass.” Like the majority of Tomatin expressions, this whisky comes with a long list of accolades including gold and double gold medals at the 2015, 2016 and 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competitions. Jim Murray also rated it 95.5/100 in his 2017 Whisky Bible. Pick up your bottle today!
