This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, is said to deliver notes of fresh fruit, lavender and Scottish heather on the nose. Followed by notes of cranberry, orange zest, rose water, spices, Earl Gray tea and poached pears on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Graham Eunson, Master Distiller at Tomatin said: “The fourth and final release from Tomatin’s French Collection is the jewel in the crown. The Cognac Edition, along with the rest of the collection, showcases our innovative dedication to craft and excellence, and is the perfect illustration of the art of comparative final maturation; a concept championed by Tomatin in the Cuatro series released in 2014, which was also very well received.”

Graham, went onto say: “We have been overjoyed by the response from the whisky community to the earlier releases, and by introducing the Cognac finish as the final edition, we hope to attract a wider audience to our unique concept allowing them to better understand the art of cask maturation.”

Tomatin – The Cognac Edition, is now available from the distillery’s online shop and specialist retailers, for a RRP of £65.00.
