Tomatin Decades II

46% abv

Decades II is truly a unique and exquisite expression, a marriage of 21 casks, selected from key years throughout the last five decades. It is a testament to the Tomatin way of life, and the generations of staff that to this day remain custodians of this exceptional Scotch Whisky.
With time spent maturing in a mix of Scotch Whisky, ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry and re-charred French oak casks from the last 50 years, Decades II is a rich and complex expression. With initial bursts of fruits giving way to hints of sweet pastry and wood shavings, and aromas of both cooked fruits and floral coconut tones. The remarkable expression is unctuous, with notes of Christmas cake, maple syrup and fresh red berries giving way to tropical fruits ahead of a long waxy, tropical finish.

18 Miles south of the Highland's capital, Inverness, once home to 3 distilleries and now none, Tomatin flies the distilling flag for the area.

Expect to find abundant fruit, balanced with cereal notes and a certain nuttiness coming together elegantly in a bottle of Tomatin. Affectionately known as the 'softer side of the Highlands', the whisky certainly fits in with it's surrounding area.

Perhaps surprisingly, Tomatin was once Scotland's most productive single malt distillery. In the 1970s it had the capacity to conjure up around 12 million litres of alcohol a year. During this period Tomatin was considered amongst the most important producers in the market place and one of the few distillers to offer their make as a single malt - initially a 5yo then also at 10yo. The success and size of Tomatin was ultimately it's demise in the 1980s when the industry collapsed, forcing Tomatin into liquidation.

Tomatin became the first Japanese owned distillery in 1986. Since then there has been a shift in focus, certainly towards quality over quantity with a capacity of around 5 million litres currently.
