Highland distillery Tomatin has released the 1975, the third limited edition single malt whisky expression in its Warehouse 6 Collection.
Distilled on 8 December 1975, the spirit has been maturing for the past 43 years in a Spanish oloroso sherry butt, cask number 35834.
Along with Tomatin distillery’s “most cherished casks”, the 1975 has been housed in Warehouse 6, and is limited to just 300 bottles.
The 46% ABV whisky is presented in a hand-blown Glencairn crystal decanter, contained inside a presentation case that is fitted with an opening mechanism comprising two metal buttons. It also comes with two whisky glasses, a solid copper stopper and a numbered certificate.
Tomatin distillery manager Graham Eunson 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 balanced with the complex background aromas created by decades of slow oxidation in its unique warehouse locale before a long and elegant finish.”
The new expression follows the launch of the 1972 edition in 2017 and 2016’s 1971 edition.
