Gentle maturation in carefully selected casks lets the subtle character of these distinctive single malts emerge, ensuring that the softer side of the precious spirit is never overpowered.
The French Collection exhibits the unique inﬂuence imparted by different types of French Wine & Spirits casks in an exceptional showcase. The whisky, distilled in 2008, was laid down in traditional Scotch Whisky oak casks prior to being moved into Monbazillac, Sauternes, Rivesaltes and Cognac casks for its ﬁnal maturation resulting in a magnificent collection.
“The French Collection is a great example of Tomatin’s dedication to craft and excellence, with each expression showcasing how respective finishing cask affects the original spirit – a concept Tomatin championed in the Cuatro series released in 2014, which was very well received.
We have produced four remarkable expressions which will appeal to not only whisky enthusiasts and collectors alike, but also a wider audience. On top of this, we are also very excited for consumers to be able to experience each expression with the ambisonic content series launched today.”
The Monbazillac, Sauternes and Rivesaltes Editions (1-3) will retail around £65 RRP and will be available to purchase from 26th April. Edition 4 of the French Collection, the Cognac Edition, will launch later this year, to complete the series.Graham Eunson, Our Master Distiller
