This limited release presents a unique opportunity to directly compare the effect of Bourbon and Sherry casks on whisky distilled in specific years at Tomatin Distillery; 1973, 1977, 1988, 1991, 2002 & 2006.

Having selected and vatted casks from the same six years in both types of casks, their Distillery Manager, Graham Eunson, has created two incredible whiskies and an exceptional tasting experience.
