Alexander Murray & Co presents a Speyside classic in the form of a 20 year old Single Malt from Tomintoul Distillery, distilled in 2001.
A distillery that labels itself as a ‘gentle dram’, Tomintoul makes one of the softest, most lush single malts in all of Scotland. Built in 1965 to provide a classic Highland component for blended whisky, Tomintoul lies within the Glenlivet estate in the Speyside region and is still sometimes seen under its older ‘Tomintoul-Glenlivet’ guise. Yet, while the standard Glenlivet brings the classic Highland flavors of sweet grains, vanilla, and dried fruits, Tomintoul is known for its honeyed glaze. Toffee apple and maple syrup linger on the nose, while the palate showcases notes of spongecake with salted caramel on the finish.
The combination of gentle sweetness and honeyed richness is the calling card of Tomintoul and deserves a spot in your collection.
