The Tomatin 12Y is smooth and silky, having been matured in traditional Scotch Whisky, ex-Bourbon and Spanish Sherry Casks. A rich, fruity aroma is the prelude to sweet flavours of ripe apples, pears and a subtle hint of nut before the long, pleasantly oily finish.
Finlaggan single malt is named after Finlaggan Castle, the seat of the feudal Lord of the Isles in the loch of the same name found in the north of Islay. Finlaggan is a mystery malt and the identity of the producing distillery is, as you’d expect,jealously guarded by the brand owners, The Vintage Malt Whisky Company.
This globally awarded, single grain whiskey has been aged twice – first in American oak Bourbon barrels and again in Spanish oak Oloroso Sherry barrels.
It will make you think twice about Irish whiskey.
While the Bourbon barrels brings a sweetness and smooth vanilla notes, the Oloroso casks layer on depth of dried fruit and Spanish oak spices.
We like to drink it neat, on ice, or with soda. For a delicious Double Barrel cocktail, try The Lough Inn recipe.
