50 Years Old expression released by Tomatin

Highland whisky distillery Tomatin has revealed its 50 Years Old single malt, distilled on 24th November 1967.

Following 50 years of maturation at the distillery, the expression has been bottled in its natural form, yielding 70 bottles at 45.3% ABV.

Stephen Bremner, managing director of Tomatin, says: “It is with great pleasure that we announce the release of Tomatin’s oldest expression – the Tomatin 50 Years Old. This special expression has been quietly resting for half a century, and it is wonderful to see it presented in all its glory.”

The whisky, finished in a first fill Oloroso sherry butt, cask number 35817, is encased within an individually numbered, handblown Glencairn crystal decanter. The decanter is presented within an Italian crafted wooden box, furnished with Italian leather. Sealed with a wooden transit cork, an engraved, solid brass gold-plated and glass stopper is also provided. Each box comes with an individually-numbered book, hand-signed by distillery manager, Graham Eunson. Finally, a premium leather carry bag completes the presentation.

Graham Eunson, distillery manager at Tomatin, says: “This dignified expression is elegant and flavourful – a complex whisky with layers of taste sensations to delight the senses. Those privy to a taste of this whisky can expect warming spices which are mellowed by lashings of Manuka honey.”

The Tomatin 50 Years Old is the distillery’s oldest expression and is expected to retail at £10,000 for a 70cl bottle in the UK within specialist retailers.
