Tomatin reveals limited edition Moscatel finish

Highland distillery Tomatin has announced the release of its limited edition Moscatel finished whisky.

The expression, which was distilled in 2003, is aged 15 years and has a limited run of just over 6,000 bottles available worldwide.

The whisky has been finished in first fill Portuguese Moscatel wine barriques for a period of five years.

Jennifer Masson, Tomatin’s marketing manager, says: “We are delighted to be able to release such an interesting and unusual cask maturation to our range of limited edition whiskies.

“Moscatel releases are relatively rare and tend to be limited as the casks aren’t widely available – making this expression a must-have and we expect it will prove very popular with our customers who are looking for something a little different, but still typically Tomatin."

Graham Eunson, Tomatin’s distillery manager, said: “This full bodied and intense single malt may be unusual in as much as it is finished in first fill Moscatel barriques, however this really accentuates what Tomatin whiskies are known for being: smooth, light, sweet and fruity."

The limited edition Moscatel expression is available from specialist retailers at a cost of RRP £75 and comes in a 70cl bottle (46% ABV).
