Tomatin launches limited edition 1972 single malt

Tomatin has unveiled its “hotly anticipated” limited edition single malt from its Warehouse 6 Collection, the 1972 edition.

The newcomer from the Scotch whisky distiller follows the launch of the “extremely well received” 1971 edition last year. The 1972 edition, which has a limited run of only 380 bottles, is the second release in a series of six.

The 1972 Warehouse 6 Collection is described as having a distinct and complex character - with aromas of summer meadow wildflowers and flavours of sweet almond, coffee and winter spices - which have been developed over four decades of maturation.

Tomatin’s Warehouse 6 Collection is a celebration of casks matured in its traditional dunnage warehouse. The single malt has been aged in three sherry hogshead casks, laid low on antique wooden rails. The Collection is presented in a wooden presentation box, which includes the bottle and glasses, as well as a Glencairn Crystal decanter.

Stephen Bremner, sales director, said: “It is very exciting to finally launch the 1972 Warehouse 6 Collection malt, 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 retailers from mid-August.
