The latest from the Tomintoul team


Finding the perfect whisky for the festive season can sometimes be a difficult task whether it's a gift for a family or friend or something to enjoy this Christmas. To help, we've put together a guide from our selection of award winning whiskies to help you to find the perfect whisky this Christmas. 

Tomintoul 10 YO

The perfect introduction to our Tomintoul malt whiskies. The 10 year old is all Bourbon cask matured, giving it a creamy vanilla note. The vanilla backbone is bound with lifted citrus, heather and sweet honey notes fading into a moreish finish of honey and sweet spices. 

Tomintoul 12 Year Old Portwood

A bit of a special Tomintoul, finished in port pipes. A delicious nose of Bassets fruit salads, walnuts and toasty malt lead into a palate of fruit crumble and creamy almond puree. The finish is soft, fruity and sweet luring you back for another. Try pairing this dram up with your cheeseboard this Christmas! 


Tomintoul 12 Year Old Oloroso

A limited edition release of Tomintoul finished for 2 years in Oloroso sherry casks. This 12 year old is weightier than the classic Tomintoul styles with rich raisin and vanilla tones leading the nose. The palate is smooth and oaky with sweet layers of dried fruit and toffee, finishing on a smooth mellow maple and walnut note.

Tomintoul Peaty Tang

Something for the smoky whisky fan! The Peaty Tang is a cheeky little dram with the nose of an Islay and the heart of a Speyside. A full and smoky heather nose leads into a surprising palate of sweet Peat and fruity, nutty malt notes. This balance of sweet and smoky continues long on the palate. A great Whisky for someone who wants a bit more smoke from their Speyside.

Tomintoul 14 YO

A Tomintoul that’s a bit more gutsy than the others in the range. The 14 Year Old is all natural colour and non- chill filtered giving you spicier, oak tones at the fore. The nose is elegant and creamy, with notes of honey and custard. The palate is sweet and a lovely combination of vanilla, honey and sweet oak spice notes. The finish is nutty and creamy with a very moreish spice note. A great whisky for those someone who likes a bit of a bite to their whisky.

Tomintoul 16YO

The ‘flagship’ malt of the Tomintoul core range. A very inviting nose of soft fruits, honey, vanilla and hazelnuts leads into a creamy and luxurious palate of creamy brioche and soft oak spices. The finish is creamy and sweet with a hint of vanilla oak spice. A must-have for any whisky cabinet! 

Tomintoul 25 YO

The perfect drop to toast and special occasion! The 25 year old Tomintoul has a warm and inviting nose of creamy vanilla toffee and toasted almonds. The palate is smooth and rounded with creamy sweet butterscotch and sweet woody spices. The finish is a lovely marriage of soft creamy notes and sweet Christmas spices.

Tomintoul 1976

Pure luxury from one of our favourite vintages, the 1976 is an extra special dram for any malt lover. A rum & raisin nose is followed by a deliciously delicate palate of soft dried fruit tones, buttery vanilla and sweet spices. The dram concludes with a long, sweet and complex finish.


Tomintoul 1981 Vintage

A hand-picked single cask of exceptional quality. Individually numbered and bottled at cask strength the vintage releases are a perfect gift for whisky lovers and collectors alike. The 1981 has a full nose of dried fruit bound with sweet oak spices. The palate is rounded and complex with rich malty layers and notes of orange marmalade. The finish is long with sweet dried fruit notes and cedar spice notes dancing on the tongue.
