Tomatin 1975 43 Year Old
We are delighted to announce the release of our third expression of the acclaimed Warehouse 6 Collection; 1975. This comes after initial releases of 1971 and 1972.
Distilled on 8th December 1975, this precious spirit has been gently maturing for the past 43 years in Warehouse 6. Laid low on antique wooden rails above cool earthen floor and stacked single level, in a traditional dunnage warehouse. Nestled in a quiet corner of the distillery, Warehouse 6 houses the distillery’s most treasured casks. At Tomatin’s very core, Warehouse 6, is a truly special place.
The 1975 Warehouse 6 Collection, has spent over four decades slowly maturing in a hand-selected Spanish Oloroso Sherry Butt. Cask number 35834, this limited and luxurious cask has wielded just 300 bottles at 46.5%.
Stephen Bremner, Managing Director, said:
“I’m so pleased to announce the release of The 1975 Warehouse 6 Collection and these limited-edition expressions from the Warehouse 6 collection bask in the perfect atmosphere during maturation. Providing the flawless environment for exquisite whisky to come to life in all its glory.”
The 1975 Warehouse 6 Collection is encased in a hand-blown Glencairn Crystal decanter. This sits within an exquisite case fitted with a unique opening mechanism, featuring two rose gold metal buttons either side. Accompanied with glasses decorated with solid copper bands, a solid copper stopper and a numbered certificate detailing the story of the whisky. Stitched and debossed details on the leather wrap adds to the elegance. Protected in a secure material bag for transit and deliver, the 1975 Warehouse 6 Collection offers the ultimate in luxury.
Graham Eunson, Distillery Manager, said:
“With patience comes reward. The 1975 Warehouse 6 Collection provides a perfect harmony of tropical and dried fruits. Dark chocolate and warm spicy notes are balanced with the complex background aromas, created by decades of slow oxidation in its unique warehouse locale before a long and elegant finish.”
