About this deal

Due to its location within the Cairngorms Dark Sky Park, Tomintoul is an ideal place to while away long winter nights stargazing and dreaming.

Percy Toplis took refuge in the area in 1920 before being discovered by a local farmer. He made his escape, shooting and wounding the farmer and a police constable while doing so. Within a week, he was shot dead by police in England. Tributes to 'courteous courageous and delightfully mischievous' Terry Wogan after his death at the age of 77". The National .

I find Tomintoul to be a bit of a strange brand. By Scotch whisky standards, it’s a relatively young distillery, having been established in 1964 but that still makes it almost fifty years old. Yet it seems rarely to be discussed or written about in any great detail. It makes my job that little bit harder when it comes to finding something interesting to talk about!

So, with no further ado, I give you… Tomintoul 16! Priced where 16 year-old single malts used to be priced, it’s bottled at the basement strength of 40% ABV after aging in exciting extremely usual ex-bourbon barrels. The village is on the famed Whisky Trail, which also includes Dufftown, Keith, Tomnavoulin, and Marypark. The surrounding countryside forms the Glenlivet Estate.

The Speyside distillery prides itself on the freshness of their ingredients and purity of their water. It is this combination that they claim makes their malt, in their words, “the gentle dram”. The artist and writer Mary Barnes died in Tomintoul in 2001, after living there for some time. [21] Something that is worth mentioning, however: Tomintoul is the proud employer of one of the Scotch whisky industry’s longest serving Master Distillers. Robert Fleming joined the company in 1990 and for more than thirty years he has guided the production of the distillery’s single malt, overseeing the creation of the entire current range of expressions. It’s an impressive stint by anyone’sThoughts: This does feel like a step-up from the 16-year-old although they are very much cut from the same cloth. The 21-year-old has that little bit of depth that only comes from a lengthy period in oak. There’s a tannic note that runs through the whole experience. The nose in particular is pleasantly complex though the palate can’t quite live up to its promise. Water opened things up a little but some weight and mouthfeel was lost as a result. A pleasant if somewhat predictable example of a mature Speyside.

Regeneration efforts [ edit ] The Malt Whisky Trail Map; Tomintoul is located close to Glenlivet The Whisky Castle (2004) Main Street, Tomintoul (2007) The Hotel Square With Water: A few drops of water brings more of that white peach to the front, along with green tea. Alas, it seems to drown out the other notes. The water also makes the palate thinner and even more watery, perhaps even bland. If you use water, use it sparingly. Whiskybase B.V. (“Whiskybase”, “we” or “us”, company details below) offers a whisky enthusiasts online platform that provides its members access to the most comprehensive, transparent and trusted resource of whisky bottles and allows and stimulates its members to contribute information about whisky bottles to the platform (“Service”). The primary retailers for tourists include the Tomintoul Gallery that sells work created by local artists, the A'anside Studios that sell arts and crafts and the Whisky Castle, which offers hundreds of single malts. [16] The castle has operated for over a century and offers whisky from every major distillery, as well as some rare products from distilleries no longer in operation. The Tomintoul Distillery, in nearby Ballindalloch, provides some employment; the company has been making whisky here for many decades. There is no visitor centre but some visits are allowed, by prior appointment. [17] I mean sure, if you want the status symbol of an old single malt to show off to your friends whilst still having an easy drinking, sessionable whisky, Tomintoul fits the bill. I suspect, however, that many consumers nowadays would prefer something a little more characterful, a little more intense and they wouldn’t particularly care if that meant buying a much younger whisky.Incidentally, if your tastes are more aligned with mine, I suggest trying out the distillery’s Old Ballantruan brand which is an entirely different beast altogether.
