Tomatin has unveiled a 16 Year Old whisky matured in Portuguese Moscatel wine barriques. The Scotch is a travel retail exclusive.
The 16-year-old has been added to the global travel retail range, which comprises: Tomatin 8 Years Old, matured in Bourbon and Sherry casks; the 12-year-old, a one-litre iteration of Tomatin’s flagship malt whisky; the 21-year-old, matured in Bourbon barrels; and the 40-year-old, an oloroso Sherry cask-aged expression.
“Our travel retail range showcases the unrivalled variety of casks we have to offer. We are constantly striving to push the boundaries within our portfolio and our global travel retail range is no exception,” said Graham Nicolson, sales director at Tomatin. “The distinctive cask maturation of this 16-year-old expression is an impressive and welcome addition to the range.”
The whisky delivers notes of traditional orange marmalade, sun dried fruits, dark chocolate and a hint of fresh ginger on the palate, while the finish is described as long and waxy.
Bottled at 46% ABV, the Tomatin 16 Year Old matured in Portuguese Moscatel wine barriques is priced at €90 ($102 USD) per 700ml bottling, and is available in select travel retail outlets globally.
