Die Destillerie Tomatin in den schottischen Highlands hat ihren ersten 50-jährigen Whisky heute veröffentlicht. Von ihm gibt es gerade einmal 70 Flaschen.

Der Tomatin 50yo wurde am 24. November 1967 destilliert und jetzt mit 45,3% Alkoholstärke abgefüllt, nachdem er ein Finish in einem Oloroso Sherry Butt erhielt.

Wer sich die aufwendig gearbeitete Flasche in sein Whiskykabinett stellen will, muss dafür 10.000 Britische Pfund auf den Tisch legen. Alle weiteren Info sowie ein Video zu der Abfüllung sehen Sie in der unten stehenden englischsprachigen Presseaussendung:


TOMATIN RELEASES ITS FIRST 50 YEAR OLD DISTILLERY BOTTLING

Tomatin, the award-winning Highland whisky distillery, has today (Monday 17th December) announced the release of its highly anticipated single malt, the Tomatin 50 Year Old, distilled on 24th November 1967.

Following 50 years of maturation at the distillery, the deep-honey coloured expression has been bottled in its most natural form, yielding just 70 special bottles at 45.3% abv.

Stephen Bremner, Managing Director of Tomatin, said: “It is with great pleasure that we announce the release of Tomatin’s oldest expression – the Tomatin 50 Year Old. This special expression has been quietly resting for half a century, and it is wonderful to see it presented in all its glory.”

The whisky, finished in a first fill Oloroso Sherry Butt, cask number 35817, is encased within an individually numbered, handblown Glencairn crystal decanter. The decanter is luxuriously presented within a striking Italian crafted wooden box, furnished with soft, premium Italian leather. Sealed with a wooden transit cork, an engraved, solid brass gold-plated and glass stopper is also provided. Each box comes with an individually-numbered book, hand-signed by Distillery Manager, Graham Eunson. Finally, a premium leather carry bag completes the presentation.

The Tomatin 50 Year Old delivers a myriad of rich and complex flavours. On the nose, aromas of freshly felled oak in an orchard of apples, pears and plums can be expected. Once on the palate, it releases bursts of exotic tropical fruits and dried apricots, sweetened with flavours of vanilla toffee, crème caramel and flame raisins. Spice and fruits balance perfectly, providing a luxurious and velvety finish.

Graham Eunson, Distillery Manager at Tomatin, said:

“This dignified expression is elegant and flavourful – a complex whisky with layers of taste sensations to delight the senses. Those privy to a taste of this whisky can expect warming spices which are mellowed by lashings of Manuka honey.”

The Tomatin 50 Year Old is the distillery’s oldest expression and is expected to retail at £10,000 for a 70cl bottle in the UK within specialist retailers. 

Tasting Notes:

The delicious, deep-honey coloured whisky is sure to be a hit amongst connoisseurs with its explosion of flavours, taking drinkers on a journey for all their senses:

  • Aromas of freshly felled oak in an orchard of apples, pears and plums can be expected
  • Bursts of exotic tropical fruits and dried apricots, sweetened with flavours of vanilla toffee, crème caramel and flame raisins
