Tomatin 1971 Warehouse 6 Collection 44 Years Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (70cl / 45.8%)
In the heart of the distillery grounds there is a quiet corner. In these sacred surrounds sits our traditional dunnage warehouse. Within, our most treasured casks. These exclusive casks enjoy a magnificent atmosphere, laid low on antique wooden rails above cool earthen oor and stacked single level – unencumbered – so our warehousemen may keep vigil on the gently maturing spirit. At Tomatin’s very core, Warehouse 6, is a truly special place.
Filled on August 7, 1971, this whisky was soon singled out as special. Lying undisturbed in Warehouse 6 the precious spirit gently matured in a hand-selected Spanish Oloroso Sherry cask, developing natural, subtle fruit tones. Time - indeed four and a half decades of watchful waiting by the cask’s custodians - has seen this exclusive expression instilled with great depth and rich flavours. Forty-four years after it was declared extraordinary by his forebears, distillery manager, Graham Eunson, believes Cask No. 30041 to be at its peak.

In perfect harmony, aromas of almond, plum, ginger cake and marzipan merge with warm avours of caramel, dark chocolate, coffee and winter fruits before a rich, refined, lingering finish.
Luxury Presentation: The originality of the extraordinary case lies in the unique opening mechanism, which involves pressing two rose gold metal buttons on the sides. Inside, the podium base holds the hand-blown Glencairn Crystal decanter and 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 add to the elegant feel. Protected in a secure material bag for transit and delivery, this product offers the buyer the ultimate in luxury.
