The Italian Collection: Tomatin’s Highland Whisky Trio

Award-winning Highland distillery, Tomatin, recently introduced its latest limited-edition masterpiece, The Italian Collection.

This trio of single malt Scotch whiskies, boasting a 46% ABV, non-chill filtered, and available at an RRP of £70, epitomizes Tomatin’s artistry. By marrying the remarkable Highland malt with the aromatic opulence of Italian wine casks, this collection showcases a harmonious fusion of flavours.

The Maturation Process

In December 2010, these whiskies embarked on their journey, maturing gracefully in traditional oak casks for a decade. Following this initial maturation, they were carefully transferred to Marsala, Amarone, and Barolo wine casks, where they continued to evolve for an additional two years. Each cask has imprinted its distinctive character onto the whisky, yielding a triumvirate of expressions that pay tribute to Italy’s venerable wine regions.

The Marsala Edition: A Symphony of Aromas and Flavours

The Marsala Edition beckons with alluring scents of panettone and candied lime. On the palate, a delightful ensemble of white chocolate, lemon truffles, and hazelnuts unfolds. The experience culminates with a sweet citrus finish, complemented by hints of toasted oak.

The Amarone Edition: A Journey Through Sweetness

The Amarone Edition graces the senses with aromas reminiscent of poached pears and traditional rhubarb and custard sweets. Upon tasting, notes of strawberry jam, Turkish delight, and delicate buttery pastry emerge. The luxurious finale features cinnamon-spiced red apples.

The Barolo Edition: A Dance of Complexity

The Barolo Edition entices with fragrances of mulled wine and dark chocolate. On the palate, spiced mead mingles with cranberry, while a subtle undertone of fresh citrus, evoking grapefruit, imparts vibrancy. The finish is marked by a touch of light tannin and delicate sugared almonds.

A Testament to Tomatin’s Craftsmanship

The Italian Collection marks the distillery’s third offering from its country-inspired ranges. These releases underscore Tomatin’s unwavering commitment to meticulous cask selection and an impeccable wood policy.

This collection serves as a genuine celebration of Scotland’s heritage and Italy’s illustrious wine history, where wine has played an integral role in cultural traditions for over 4,000 years. It also pays homage to Tomatin’s “To What Matters” brand platform, which venerates the significance of human connection and honours the legacy of the individuals and the land that contribute to the creation of superior Highland whisky.

Scott Adamson, Blender and Global Brand Ambassador at Tomatin Distillery shared his thoughts: “The Italian Collection seamlessly weaves the rich tapestry of Italian wine culture with our elegant Highland single malt whisky. Italy’s profound and enduring love for single-malt Scotch whisky inspired this trilogy of releases, offering a unique interpretation of our traditional Highland malt.

“We aspired to capture the essence of Italian wine—its history, nature, landscape, and traditions—and infuse it into our whisky, all encapsulated within a single glass. Each expression in this collection is a testament to the harmonious union of these two worlds, promising an exceptional tasting journey for whisky enthusiasts.”

In conclusion, Tomatin’s Italian Collection is a testament to the artistry of whisky-making, blending the heart of the Highlands with the soul of Italian wine. This limited-edition trilogy promises an exquisite sensory experience that is sure to captivate the palates of whisky connoisseurs around the world. Raise your glass and embark on a journey through time and terroir with Tomatin.
