Tomatin 12 Year Old

Tomatin 12 Year Old

Ref: W0202

North Highland

Tomatin is pronounced Tom-AT-in and in the Gaelic language, ‘Hill of the Juniper.'

A fresh aroma, lightly smoky, slightly caramel, with some oak. Smooth, neither sweet nor dry, with some peat and pepper.

Voted 'Distiller of the Year' at the Whisky Magazine's Icons of Whisky 2016 Awards

Illicit stills are part of the history of whisky distilling in Scotland, and were widely used in the local hills around Tomatin. As a distilling site, illicit or otherwise, Tomatin goes back to the 15th Century when drovers – men who ‘drove’ their cattle to market over high mountain passes – would fill up their whisky flasks from a still alongside the Old Laird’s House. A formal distillery for the making of fine Scotch malt was first built on the site in 1897 by the Tomatin Spey District Distillery Co Ltd, and revived in 1909 by the new Tomatin Distillers Co Ltd. A 20-year expansion programme started in the 1950s saw production rise to some 12 million litres a year by 1974, making Tomatin the largest capacity Scotch whisky distillery in the world at the time.

The distillery was acquired by Japanese shareholders in 1986, who established the current Tomatin Distillery Company Limited, and launched the modern era of whisky distilling in the Monadhliath Mountains.

Elegant and airy, with a big smooth texture, the Tomatin 12 year old is a classic single Highland malt whisky. A true delight for discerning whisky drinkers, Tomatin is carefully matured in traditional oak barrels to produce the lightly peated, delicate flavour.

The complex bouquet contains rich malt and fruity aromas, with just a hint of peatiness.

A unique combination of attractive flavours – a balance of apples, pears and malt, with a gentle hint of nuttiness enhanced by the subtle use of sherry wood.

The result is a wonderfully rich and elegant taste producing a long and satisfying finish.
