Tomatin 2008 12 Year Old Sauternes Cask French Collection
Part 2 of the French Collection, the Sauternes Edition is matured in Sauternes barriques
Distilled on 19th September 2008, this whisky brings a burst of peach and apricot on 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 mouth feel indicative of the Sauternes wine that once occupied the cask.

The French Collection exhibits the unique inﬂuence imparted by different types of French Wine & Spirits casks in an exceptional showcase. The whisky, distilled in 2008, was laid down in traditional Scotch Whisky oak casks prior to being moved into Monbazillac, Sauternes, Rivesaltes and Cognac casks for its ﬁnal maturation resulting in a magnificent collection.
