This whisky is light and delicate, true to traditional Tomatin style. However the introduction of Virgin Oak casks into the mix offers a new dimension with a vibrant and enticing sweetness.

Tomatin is believed to have been built on the site of a small illicit distillery dating back to the 15th century. Located 16 miles south of Inverness, and is now Scotland's largest malt distillery in terms of capacity, although it only had two stills up until 1956. Following this time the distillery began a program of rapid expansion ending in 1974 when twelve stills were added bringing the total number up to 23.
Tomatin Distillers went into liquidation in 1985 and the distillery was sold to Takara & Okura Consortium of Japan, making the Tomatin distillery the first to be owned outright by a Japanese company. Tomatin means 'hill of the bushes', and takes it water from the Allt-na-Frithe or 'free burn' a tributary of the river Findhorn.
The whisky is available as a single malt through the distillery owners and is a filling in several blended whiskies.
Aroma- Vanilla pods, marshmallow, sponge cake and fresh pineapple, mixed with citrus lemon and boiled sweets.
Palate- Light and delicate with a candy sweetness which is peppered with hints of pine. Lemon sherbet, pineapple and crunchy green apples with a touch of freshly baked sugar cookies.
Finish- light and refreshing.
Cask- Matured in a combination of Bourbon barrels and Virgin Oak casks.
