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...

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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
