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 2 of 4: The Sauternes Edition
Distilled on 19th September 2008, the Sauternes brings a burst of peach and apricot on the 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 mouthfeel indicative of the Sauternes wine that once occupied the cask.
