Crafted by fourth generation distiller

The Tomintoul distillery was built back in 1964, and is located inside the piscturesque Glenlivet estate, within Speyside. The distillery is named after the nearby village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highland region of Scotland.

This dram has been matured for at least sixteen years in ex-Bourbon oak casks. The ingredients used are all fresh and pure and water is sourced from the nearby Ballantruan Spring. With cut grass and malted barley notes from nose to finish, this is a light and full-bodied malt.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
