Tomatin - 2008 - The French Collection - Sauternes Casks - Limited Edition - Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
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.
Only 6,000 bottles of each addition available worldwide.
The Sauternes Edition 2 of 4
Distilled on 19th September 2008, this whisky brings a burst of peach and apricot on the nose, calmed by rich Manuka honey. The sweet honey continues on the palate accompanied by coconut and ginger. The finish is wonderfully sweet and fresh with a syrupy mouth feel indicative of the Sauternes wine that once occupied the cask.
Non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% abv.
