Tomatin Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has added the 21-Year Old to its global travel retail range.

The new travel retail exclusive will be available in selected DF&TR outlets globally for €175 ($190). It is the latest in a series of high-profile releases for Tomatin, which reported 70% travel retail growth in 2019. Bottled at 46% alc./vol, Tomatin’s new 21-Year Old is sold in 700ml bottles and will be available at selected airports worldwide, including Amsterdam Schiphol, Istanbul and Sydney.

Matured for over two decades in first-fill ex-bourbon casks, this has resulted in a light and smooth single malt. On the nose, aromas of soft topical fruits are complemented by warm flavours of freshly baked croissant.

The Tomatin travel retail range comprises the 8-Year Old (matured in Bourbon and Sherry casks), the 12 Year Old (a one-litre version of Tomatin’s flagship malt), the 15-Year Old (matured in American Oak) and the 40-Year Old (the premium oloroso sherry expression).

Graham Nicolson, Sales Director, Tomatin said: “Our travel retail range has won dozens of awards over the years and I’m confident that the 21-Year Old will perform incredibly well across the globe. Between 2018 and 2019, we experienced a massive growth of over 70% and thanks to exciting releases like the 21-Year Old, we’re expecting continued growth in this sector in 2020.”
