Tomatin may have been flying under the radar in recent years.

There was a time though when this Speyside distillery operated 23 stills and was the largest distillery in Scotland. At the time in the mid-seventies, they were one of the few distillers to sell Single Malt Scotch, with most of their product going into world-famous blends such as Chivas Regal and Johnnie Walker. Not a bad accolade for a Scotch producer whose name refers to the methods used in the 1700s to illegally make Whisky. The name translates to ‘Hill of the Juniper Bush’ and before Whisky became a legal product, illegal distillers often used Juniper bushes as fuel to heat the stills. When set alight, Juniper bushes omit little to no smoke and are therefore an ideal way to start a fire without attracting attention.

Today, Tomatin are very much focused on quality over quantity and this expression is the perfect example. Tomatin’s Cuatro series are four different expressions of their 12-year-old Malt finished in different types of Sherry cask. The others are Fino, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez if you’re interested. With only 1,500 bottles released of this Manzanilla expression on the market, it’s safe to say this is a tough Scotch to get your hands on. But you don’t take us for amateurs do you? This one is set to go quickly so don’t hang about.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
The little town of Tomatin lives and breathes Whisky. The entire population is less than 200, and since their founding in 1897, Tomatin Distillery has had to build special housing on site for employees who come from the surrounding countryside to work seasonally at the plant.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
