In the heart of the distillery grounds there is a quiet corner. In these sacred surrounds sits the traditional dunnage warehouse. Within, their most treasured casks. These exclusive casks enjoy a magnificent atmosphere, laid low on antique wooden rails above cool earthen floor and stacked single level – unencumbered – so the warehousemen may keep vigil on the gently maturing spirit.
At Tomatin’s very core, Warehouse 6, is a truly special place.
Cask numbers 49541 and 49542 have been lying gracefully in Warehouse 6 since being filled on September 21st 1978, gently and slowly maturing the precious spirit within. After thirty years, the spirit was moved to the finest First Fill Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks and laid down for a further decade, under the attentive, enduring care of the distillery custodians.
With over forty two years' patience comes reward. In perfect harmony, aromas of stewed fruits, dark maple syrup and bursts of orange peel and bergamot meet soft flavours of dark chocolate, warming spices and salted caramel before a long, silky finish
Each of the 350 units is decanted into an exquisite hand blown Glencairn Crystal decanter with unique copper decoration. This luxury bottle is presented with two glasses (also Glencairn Crystal), a solid copper stopper, along with a numbered certificate detailing the remarkable journey of the whisky.
