NEW SCOTCH: We have a fantastic, rare new whisky in stock. Ever heard of Garnheath Distillery? Probably not. Only producing whisky for 21 years between 1865 to 1986 before being demolished in 1988, whisky from this Lost Scottish Distillery is very hard to come by. Our friends at Independent bottling company Morrison & MacKay have released a very limited 41 year single grain bottling and we LOVE it. We had a wee taste and you can read our blog here: This one is rather special! New Scotch: Glenlivet 18 Year Old 1997 (48.4%) Old Particular single cask @DLaingWhisky

Blog Tasting Tomatin 12 Year Old Burns Malt for The Whisky Barrel

Posted by Alastair in New Products

We've just launched a great new batch of Burns Malt™ Scotch whiskies, and so we thought it best to catch up wuth a recent release, a Tomatin 12 Year Old distilled May 2001 and bottled May 2013 having matured in a fresh ex-sherry oak hogshead cask.

Tomatin Scotch Distillery sits in the Monadhliath Mountains near Inverness, and at 315m above sea level is one of the highest working distilleries in Scotland.

Tomatin Scotch distillery is consistently producing high quality, award-winning Highland single malt whiskey. A major reason for this success is the great importance being placed on maturation in the best oak casks, well supported by its own on-site cooperage. Over the past couple of decades an increasing proportion of Tomatin spirit has been filled into ex-sherry oak casks. Here at The Whisky Barrel we could not resist the opportunity to add a ‘very-sherry’ Tomatin from a first fill sherry hogshead to our Burns Malt Scotch range. Don't just take our word for it, check out Pierre of Whisky Marketplace rating this terrific dram...
