To celebrate the Speyside festival we have a new tasting: hidden gems of speyside. Tomintoul distillery was founded relatively recently in 1965. It takes its name from the nearby village, the highest in the Scottish highlands. Initially Tomintoul went mostly into blends, but recently it has released a range of excellent single malts, and these have been very well received.

Nose: A soft light honey with light wood spice and a veritable fruit bowl with apples, oranges, lemons, raspberries, pears, apricots and kiwi fruits.

Taste: Immediate oranges and lemons. Buzzing oak and a soft buttery maltiness and a hint of fresh coconut on the finish.
