|Tomatin launches two new limited-edition expressions|
Tomatin 2009 Caribbean Rum Finish, which is limited to 7,200 bottles, is the Highlands based distillery’s second release using Caribbean rum barrels. The barrels are said to have imparted flavours of soft tropical fruit, mocha and salted caramel, rounded off with a sweet, lingering finish.
Tomatin 2006 Amontillado Sherry Finish, which is limited to 5,400 bottles, is said to deliver notes of dark chocolate, dried fruits, espresso and hints of nuts.
These latest wood finished limited-editions, follow on from Tomatin’s 9 Year Old Caribbean Rum and 14 Year Old Cabernet Sauvignon Finish expressions, which were released in 2016, and their 15 Year Old Moscatel Finish which launched last year.
Commenting on the news, Graham Eunson, Distillery Operations Director at Tomatin, said: “Our dedication to the continuous development of Tomatin single malt has been reflected in our growth and recent award wins. We are constantly striving to produce exceptional expressions that appeal to our existing customers and a wider audience. The array of tropical notes, sweet mixed spices and rich sherry infusions will hopefully entice a range of enthusiasts to sample the new products.”
Tomatin's 2009 Caribbean Rum Finish and 2006 Amontillado Sherry Finish, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of £49.00 and £60.00.
