Warehouse 6 Collection launched by Tomatin

Highland based Tomatin Distillery has released a rare single malt whisky distilled in 1971. The 44 year old single cask release was unveiled at London's RSA Vaults and is the first in the luxury Warehouse 6 Collection which will include some of the most refined spirits from the Highland distiller.

The complex malt is encased in a crystal decanter decorated with solid copper along with two crystal tumblers, inside an impressively ornate box comprising of varnished wood laminate, plexiglass and rose gold metal to reflect its exclusivity.

Bottled at a strength of 45.8% ABV, the whisky is described as having aromas of almond, plum, ginger cake and marzipan merged with warm flavours of caramel, dark chocolate, coffee and winter fruits before a rich, refined, lingering finish.
The malt was revealed at the London event by distillery manager, Graham Eunson who was joined by journalists, specialist drink retailers, bartenders and bloggers to toast the new limited edition expression. Just 252 bottles of the spirit, matured in hand selected Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, are available.
Sales director, Stephen Bremner comments: "We are thrilled to launch our 1971 single malt today, the first rare and limited expression in our Warehouse 6 Collection. We have spent decades perfecting this delicate spirit that reflects our dedication to producing whisky of exceptional quality. The single malt evokes the soft house character of Tomatin with an intricate medley of rich tones and flavours which are truly unique."

The creation will be available at specialist retailers and establishments worldwide, retailing at £2,500.
