Highland distillery Tomatin recently announced the latest addition to its global travel retail range, the Tomatin 16 Year Old single malt.
This new expression will be a travel retail exclusive, and will sell in selected outlets for a suggested retail price of €90.
This 16 Year Old is said to draw its style and flavors from the Portuguese Moscatel wine barriques it matured in. Balanced with the influence from traditional oak casks, the distiller’s notes show that this single malt brings flavors of traditional orange marmalade, sun dried fruits and dark chocolate with a hint of fresh ginger and a long, waxy finish
Tomatin’s Travel Retail portfolio includes the 8 Year Old (matured in bourbon and Sherry casks), the 12 Year Old (a one liter version of Tomatin’s flagship malt), the 21 Year Old (matured in bourbon barrels), and the 40 Year Old (the premium Oloroso Sherry expression).
Each bottle in Tomatin’s Travel Retail range has been awarded a gold or double gold award at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Graham Nicolson, Tomatin sales director, said in a prepared statement, “Our Travel Retail range showcases the unrivaled variety of casks we have to offer. We are constantly striving to push the boundaries within our portfolio and our global travel retail range is no exception. The distinctive cask maturation of this 16 year old expression is an impressive and welcome addition to the range.”
Bottled at 46% ABV, Tomatin’s new 16 Year Old comes in 700ml bottles.
