Tomintoul 27 Year Old (70cl, 40%)
Tomintoul 27 Year Old The Gentle Dram Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
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'.
