LIMITED EDITION: 12 YEAR OLD FRENCH OAK

This North America exclusive bottling of Tomatin 12 year old was matured in ex Bourbon Hogsheads for the first 9 years and finished in French Oak casks for the final 3 years. The casks were specially sourced from various European cooperages, including Lafite, Vicard and Seguin Moreau, and originally contained red wine from the Bacalhoa winery which was formerly owned by Rothschild.

The casks have been de-charred and re-charred to give a sweet and creamy flavour, like virgin oak casks.
