  • NEW RELEASE - Tomintoul Vintage 1973

    We are delighted to announce the release of an incredibly rare new Tomintoul - our Vintage 1973 Double Wood Matured, aged 45 years.

    Only 218 bottles have been produced.

    This single malt has been selected not only because of its rarity of age but, very significantly, because it is the result of a careful “finishing” process by which our whisky began by resting for more than three decades of ageing in the finest white-oak American casks before being transferred into a hogshead cask originally used to mature Oloroso Sherry in Spain. Finally, after a generous period of time in Sherry wood it was deemed that the time was right to make it available to lovers of excellent whisky.

    Available in selected European and Asian markets world wide with an RRP of circa £2000.

     

    Tasting notes

    Colour: Deep amber

    Nose: Clean Sherry influence on a sweet malty layer. Intense waxy aromas merge with hints of orange citrus and Christmas pudding.

    Palate: Richly mouth-filling as notes of nuts, chocolate, mocha coffee bean and spicy oak tannins vie for supremacy.

    Finish: Dry and spicy with a rich and enduring finalé.
