After the first edition which was matured in sherry casks, this time maturation is done in port casks and it is bottled at a satisfying 49.5%. Arriving in stores as we speak, for around € 80.

Tomatin 1967 50 Years
Tomatin will release a 50 years old whisky distilled in 1967. We already knew Wealth Solutions was working on a 50 years old ‘Black’ single cask release #30258 but now other casks from the oldest vintage in the warehouses will become an official bottling. Bottled at 45,5% and 211 bottles available.
Update: this Tomatin is a private bottling so it won’t be on sale.
