Tomatin unveils 1972 Warehouse 6 Collection

Tomatin has unveiled its limited edition 1972 Warehouse 6 Collection.

Following the launch of the 1971 edition last year, the distillery has now released the 1972 Warehouse 6 Collection to the market, the second release in a series of six. Bottled at 42.1% ABV, this collection has a limited run of only 380 bottles.

This single malt is part of Tomatin's Warehouse 6 Collection – a series of casks matured in its traditional dunnage warehouse. It has been aged in three sherry hogshead casks (23404, 23405 and 23406), laid on antique wooden rails, above cool earthen floor, in the very heart of the Tomatin Distillery grounds.

The 1972 Warehouse 6 Collection is presented in a wooden presentation box. The box is opened by pressing on two rose gold metal buttons found on the side of the box, which allows the top to be lifted off revealing the bottle and glasses. Inside, a wooden podium base holds the hand-blown Glencairn Crystal decanter and glasses decorated with solid copper bands. The bottle boasts a solid copper stopper and a numbered certificate detailing the story of the whisky.

Stephen Bremner, sales director, said: "It is very exciting to finally launch the 1972 Warehouse 6 Collectionmalt, which has been sitting patiently in some of our most treasured casks, maturing and growing in flavour; just as the Tomatin brand itself has grown throughout the years. We wanted to create a range of whiskies that truly capture the heart of the distillery. This we achieved initially with the 1971, and now with the 1972."

The 1972 will retail at £2,000 and will be available from luxury whisky retailers by mid-August.

Tomatin recently won Distiller Of The Year 2016 and Brand Innovator Of The Year 2017 at the Icons of Whisky Awards.
