Tomatin 2006 Amontillado // Tomatin 2009 Caribbean rum

Tomatin 2006 Amontillado finish // Tomatin 2009 Caribbean rum finish

Highland distillery Tomatin announced two limited editions: a 2009 Caribbean rum finish and a 2006 Amontillado sherry finish.

The Caribbean rum matured for 9 years in traditional casks before being finished for one year in first-fill rum barrels. There are 7200 bottles for around € 60.

The Amontillado finish sounds more interesting to me as it’s rarely used for whisky finishing. This one was also 9 years old before getting a three year finish in first-fill Amontillado. It costs around € 70, with 5400 bottles available. Both are a standard 46% ABV.

Fettericairn 16 Years - Fettercairn 23 Years

Fettercairn 16 Years // Fettercairn 23 Years

Two new travel retail expressions from Fettercairn: a 16 Year Old (46% ABV) and 23 Year Old (47% ABV), both matured in ex-bourbon casks. They join the 12 Year Old PX edition that was available in duty free.
