This may be becoming my favorite scotch. I discovered it at a tasting party at a friends house and ordered a couple of bottles as a result. It is very smooth with a great mellow taste, perfect for the person who enjoys their scotch neat or on the rocks
Beautifully located near to the village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland in the prestigious Glenlivet Estate at the heart of the Speyside region, lies Tomintoul Distillery. In the middle of the last century it took more than a year to find the purest of water sources for use in the malt whisky making process. Finally, the search located the Ballantruan Spring, an exceptional source of the purest of waters nestling in the Cromdale Hills. The quest over, Tomintoul Distillery was built close to the Ballantruan Spring and adjacent to the majestic River Avon. The natural environment, high altitude, pure air and the exclusive use of the outstanding quality of water from the Ballantruan Spring, combine to enhance the superb quality of Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt – the gentle dram. Tomintoul single malt whisky is a testament to our master distiller, Robert Fleming, whose family has been making whisky in the Speyside Glenlivet region for four generations. Inspired by tradition, he has produced a single malt of unique quality, which is now available in six expressions, each of which is smooth and mellow.
