The single malt sweet spot.

There is not even a freeway off-ramp for the little town of Tomatin. But that’s OK, keeps the city-folk out. Back in the 1970s, this little out-of-the-way hamlet produced more Whisky than any place in Scotland. Well, that’s no longer true, but their Highland single malt is still a core component of many of the finest blends, including two of their own: Antiquary and Talisman. Today, Tomatin is owned by mega-corp Takara Shuzo from Japan, where demand for their products is huge. But they stab off a select amount of their production for their own signature single malt Whisky line across a range of ages and special editions.

Tomatin 18 is finished in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks. And eighteen years is one of those perfect sweet spots in the aging cycle where you get just about as much floral aroma, dense flavor, and complexity as possible while remaining at a reasonable price point. It has plenty of character and richness and was even voted the “Best Highland single malt” in its category in 2014. 

Other accolades:

- 3X Double Gold (SFWSC)
- 2X Gold (WWA)
- Double Gold (Asia WSC)

We could go on forever, but only taste that matters is yours. You be the judge...

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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).
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.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
