Tomatin has revealed a new limited-edition single malt series they are calling the Five Virtues, representing nature’s elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.
Tomatin Wood has been aged in French, American and Hungarian oak casks, while Fire is matured in heavily charred oak.
Earth is matured in peat-dried malted barley casks and Metal emerges from copper stills. Water uses pure soft water from the Alt-na-Frith burn.
Tomatin’s five single malts each have a limited run of 6,000 bottles with only the Wood and Fire expressions available now for $60 per bottle while the remainder of the group [Earth, Metal and Water] will be released later this year.
