LA Di DA had a very fabulous time at the launch of Tomatin Distillery’s extremely rare single malt whisky, which was distilled in 1971. They unveiled it at the uber classy RSA Vaults in London and plied us with delish and very grown up cocktails and tastings. We can officially confirm it is beautiful, understated and very moreish. The 44 year old single cask release is the first of the luxury Warehouse 6 Collection. Just 252 bottles of the spirit, matured in hand selected Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, are available so don’t hang around! Bottled at a strength of 45.8% volume, the whisky has aromas of almond, plum, ginger cake and marzipan merged with warm flavours of caramel, dark chocolate, coffee and winter fruits before a rich, refined, lingering finish.
The complex malt is encased in a crystal decanter decorated with solid copper along with two crystal tumblers, inside an impressively ornate box comprising of varnished wood laminate, plexiglass and rose gold metal to reflect its exclusivity. The presentation box retails for £2,500 – we need!
