Tomatin’s French Collection is a series of exceptional whiskies, which has been 12 years in the making, exhibiting the unique influence imparted by different French wine and spirit casks. The whisky, distilled in 2008, began its maturation in traditional Scotch Whisky oak casks before being moved to Monbazillac, Sauternes, Riversaltes and Cognac casks for the final stage of the process, resulting in a magnificent collection of 4 expressions. All 3 Wine finishes were moved to wine casks for final maturation in July 2017.
Edition 1 of 4; The Monbazillac Edition
Distilled on 25th April 2008, this Monbazillac aroma dances betweeen notes of dark maple syrup and intense espresso, balanced with cinnamon baked apples. On the palate, there is a sweet cereal flavour combined with sweet milk chocolate and honeycomb ahead of subtle spices and emerging nutty flavours. The finish is rich with walnut and maple syrup.
