  • INTRODUCING TOMINTOUL TLATH

     

    We are proud to announce the release of Tomintoul “Tlàth”.

    Pronounced “Tlah” in the named derives from Gaelic word meaning –gentle/mellow reflecting the true meaning of our whisky which is known as “the gentle dram”.

    Tomintoul Tlàth is the result of a very careful selection of individual casks. The hand-chosen collection consists of whiskies of various ages matured in first-class American oak bourbon barrels.

    The new addition serves as an entry point to the core range representing great value for money. The proof is in the taste and quality of the whisky in the bottle.

    Marketing Director, Duncan Baldwin said: “After experimenting with different cask types and flavour styles we have produced a very exciting whisky. The result is this superb release of Tomintoul, “Tlàth.”

    Tasting Notes:

    Colour: Golden Straw

    Nose: Quintessentially Speyside. Light, with some sweet toffee and vanilla and hints of mint leaf and citrus peel.

    Palate:  Light and creamy. Lively white pepper and some oak-driven spiciness dance on the tongue with background layers of nutmeg and toasted vanilla.

    Finish: Spicy with notes of shortbread and fresh mint

    Tlàth is bottled at 40% vol and packaged in cases of 6 x 70cl clear glass bespoke bottles with individual cylindrical canisters.

    The new edition will be available in key European, Duty Free and selected world markets.
