SWEET & SAVOURY: TOMATIN LAUNCH 2006 FINO UK EXCLUSIVE
Tomatin, the award-winning Highland distillery, has today announced the release of a limited-edition 2006 Fino expression, launching exclusively to the UK market.
The 2006 Fino expression was initially matured for 13 years at Tomatin Distillery on the 10th November 2006, and moved to the finest Spanish Fino Sherry butts on 12th November 2015.
Fino’s bright flor and nutty flavours, along with Tomatin’s malty backbone and fresh fruits are in perfect harmony. The whisky has notes of baked apple and almond cake, toffee sauce and lemon, followed by the more savoury flavours of freshly baked sourdough, olive oil and baking spice, which results in a silky yet fresh finish. Non-chill filtered and natural colour, the limited run has produced just 1,691 70cl bottles (46% abv) of this 13-year-old whisky, and will be available online and from specialist retailers across the UK from today.
Graham Eunson, Master Distiller at Tomatin, said: “We strive to produce remarkable expressions that appeal to not only our existing customers, but to a wider audience too. The 2006 Fino is a great example of our dedication to craft and excellence. The combination of both sweet and savoury notes gives a finish like no other, and we hope it will entice both whisky enthusiasts and novices to try this new edition.”
Tomatin’s ability to experiment with creatively finished expressions comes from the distillery’s exceptional wood policy, which ensures there is a wide range of casks sourced from prestigious partners within the industry.
To align with the 2006 Fino launch and to celebrate Graham Eunson’s 30th year in the industry, Tomatin Single Malt will be hosting a live tasting session on Friday 16th October at 7:30pm, on the Tomatin YouTube channel. A competition will also be running on the Tomatin social channels for viewers to be in for a chance of winning a tasting kit so that they can join in with the tasting event.
The limited edition 2006 Fino expression is available to purchase from select specialist retailers across the UK from 1st October, for further information please visit: http://www.tomatin.com/2006-fino-uk-exclusive
