Light honey gold in colour. The bouquet shows fruit and berries. Plum pie and cream. Fresh, but warm and wintery and comforting bouquet, deep and rich. The palate is more honey and vanilla, less of the sherry influence. A touch of liquorice and some spice too. The finish shows chocolate and nuts and some butter cream.

Founded in 1897 Tomatin grew in stature well into the early 1900s when it became the largest malt whisky distillery in Scotland, serving the Scotch whisky boom years of 1973 to 1984. When demand decreased in the early 1980s, its eleven stills ceased operation and by 1986, when many other single malt distilleries were forced to close, Tomatin was on the brink of becoming yet another lost distillery. This was until the site was rescued by a Japanese drinks agency, making it the first Scottish distillery to be wholly owned by a Japanese company. Today, with twelve stills in operation, Tomatin remains one of the largest malt distilleries in Scotland. The site produces mostly whisky in the classic sweet, fruity Highland-style, but also creates a small amount of peated Scotch whisky as well.
