Tomatin Launches 45 Year Old Single Malt Exclusively In Travel Retail

Tomatin 45

Tomatin has unveiled a limited-edition 45 Year Old single malt whisky. Only 250 individually numbered bottles of the new Scotch will be made available, exclusively through airports and global travel retail outlets.

The Tomatin 45 Year Old Scotch has been matured in a Spanish Oloroso sherry cask for more than 45 years before being bottled in early 2023 at natural strength, natural color, and non-chill filtered.

On the nose, the whisky begins with tropical aromas, which are followed by waves of summer berries and cherry before a dryness emerges in the form of freshly roasted coffee beans. The palate delivers a mix of dried tropical fruits, which develop before a burst of tangy Sanguinello blood orange, salted caramel chocolate, and a hint of herbal bitters. A satin-like texture cloaks the palate with dried tropical fruits and tangy citrus, followed by the subtle influence of the sherry cask which comes through lightly at the end.

“This is a remarkable moment for the distillery, as we reveal the latest premium aged-statement single malt whisky in our portfolio,” said Graham Eunson, Master Distiller at Tomatin Distillery. “Our 45 Year Old is a robust but complex single malt with a varied tasting profile that combines succulent fruit flavours with smooth, salty caramel, and a light sherry influence. Its rarity makes it perfect for a truly special occasion and the ideal addition for global collectors. Tomatin’s history tells a great story of craftsmanship and the perseverance of Highland whisky-making, and our 45 Year Old is a testament to this heritage.”

The whisky comes presented in an exquisite, custom-made Glencairn crystal decanter with a golden stopper, and is encased in a high gloss wooden box. In hues of dark chocolate browns and gold, the packaging showcases Tomatin’s new luxury style for its premium range. The colors make subtle reference to the distillery’s Highland landscape, while curved doors and etchings on the wooden box represent the rolling hills which surround the distillery and the spirit traveling up the stills.  Each pack comes with a bespoke metal certificate, signed by Master Distiller Graham Eunson, as he passes on guardianship to each of the new owners. 

Bottled at 41.5% ABV, the Tomatin 45 Year Old is available for £7,500 (€8,500) per 70cl bottle. For more information, head over to the distillery’s official website.

In October, Tomatin launched the Portuguese Collection.
