TOMATIN 42 Year Old 1978 Warehouse 6 Collection
TOMATIN 42 Year Old 1978 Warehouse 6 Collection. In the heart of the distillery grounds there is a quiet corner. In these sacred surrounds sits our traditional dunnage warehouse. Within, our most treasured casks. These exclusive casks enjoy a magnificent atmosphere, laid low on antique wooden rails above cool earthen floor and stacked single level – unencumbered – so our warehousemen may keep vigil on the gently maturing spirit.
At Tomatin’s very core, Warehouse 6, is a truly special place. Cask numbers 49541 and 49542 have been lying gracefully in Warehouse 6 since being filled on September 21st 1978, gently and slowly maturing the precious spirit within. After thirty years, the spirit was moved to the finest First Fill Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks and laid down for a further decade, under the attentive, enduring care of our distillery custodians.
Each of the 350 units is decanted into an exquisite hand blown Glencairn Crystal decanter with unique copper decoration. This luxury bottle is presented with two glasses (also Glencairn Crystal), a solid copper stopper, along with a numbered certificate detailing the remarkable journey of the whisky.
