Sweet and awarded Highlander.

Not far from Inverness, there's a small village of Tomatin. The name means "hill of juniper" in Gaelic and has nothing to do with tomatoes. Rumor has it, Whisky has been made here since the 1500s, but the establishment called Tomatin Spey Distillery was founded in 1897. In mid-Eighties, it was bought by Takara Shuzo and in 1987, it was known as the largest malt distillery in Scotland. They mostly make blended Whiskies (such as Talisman and Antiquary) and in 2014, they updated the previous 12YO expression and created this beauty.

Now, it's bottled at 43% ABV instead of 40%. The Spirit spent over a decade in ex-Bourbon barrels, before it received a lovely Oloroso Sherry finish. Its smoothness, subtlety and creaminess brought this Scotch a bunch of awards, including the Double Gold at 2019 San Francisco WSC and 91.5 points from Jim Murray. It's a refreshing and rich release every malt-head should try.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
