Highland distillery Tomatin has unveiled a new limited-edition 45-year-old single malt.
Bottled at 41.5% ABV, only 250 individually numbered 70cl bottles are available, with an RSP of £7,500.
The whisky is presented in a custom-made Glencairn crystal decanter with a golden stopper, which is encased in a high gloss wooden box.
Each pack comes with a bespoke metal certificate signed by Master Distiller Graham Eunson.
The whisky has been gently matured in a Spanish Oloroso sherry cask for more than 45 years before being bottled in early 2023 at natural strength, natural colour, and non-chill filtered.
The result is “a tropical spirit on the nose which is followed by a wave of summer berries and cherry before a dryness emerges in the form of freshly roasted coffee beans.
On the palate, a mix of dried tropical fruits develop before a burst of tangy Sanguinello blood orange, salted caramel chocolate, and a hint of herbal bitters.”
Master Distiller Graham Eunson commented: “Our 45 Year Old is a robust but complex single malt with a varied tasting profile that combines succulent fruit flavours with smooth, salty caramel, and a light sherry influence. Its rarity makes it perfect for a truly special occasion and the ideal addition for global collectors.”
