2008 Cadenheads Small Batch Tomatin 10 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$130. 00 Bottle
Another curious distillery, owned by a trio of Japanese corporations since the mid 1980s. Work on improving wood selections has significantly lifted Tomatin's reputation in a relatively short time. In particular, a higher percentage of first-fill casks (as opposed to second or third fill) have showcased the otherwise high-grade distillate. This one's from three x-bourbon hogsheads. One blogger has described it as "pure and naked." Cadenhead's official notes read, "honey, lemongrass, elderflower and caramel shortbread." 834 bottles have been released. 55.5% Alc./Vol.
