This very special and unique single malt whisky crafted to represent the 50 years of craftmanship at the distillery.
Tomintoul have marked the fiftieth anniversary of spirit flowing from its stills with this stunning release composed of whiskies from each decade. Casks were chosen from 1965, 1975, 1985, 1995 and 2005 by Master Distiller, Robert Fleming, producing 5,230 individually numbered bottles.
The name Tomintoul comes from Scotland's highest village just a few miles away. The distillery was built in 1965 by whisky brokers Hay & MacLeod and W & S Strong, and merged with Whyte & Mackay in the early 1970s. Capacity was expanded and the distillery changed hands several more times before it came under the ownership of Angus Dundee Distillers in 2000, and the first 10 Year Old single malt was released in 2002. A peated malt named Old Ballantruan was launched in 2005, named after Tomintoul's water source, the Ballantruan Spring. Tomintoul distillery has gained a reputation for producing laid-back, mellow whiskies, hence their tagline is 'The Gentle Dram'.
