Tomatin 1967 40 Year Old
Tomatin was once the largest distillery in Scotland, with an expansion in 1976 bringing its still count to a whopping 23 (with a capacity for 10 million litres). An over-stretch at the time, it was forced into liquidation in 1985, never having run at full capacity. The following year it became Scotland's first ever Japanese-owned distillery after it was saved by a consortium of long-term customers. Nowadays it provides the heart to the popular Antiquary blend in addition to continuing to produce a highly regarded single malt.
The Tomatin 40 year old is highly acclaimed and widely sought after. Distilled in 1967 and matured in a combination of seven ex-bourbon hogshead casks.
One of 1614 bottles.
