  • Rare Single Sherry Cask Release

    Following the successful launch of the first-ever Tomintoul Distillery single cask which featured a 1981 Bourbon cask, the distillery has released a rare single Sherry cask edition of its award-winning malt range from the 1977 distillation.

    This rare single Sherry cask release has been bottled in an attractive 70cl decanter style bottle and is presented in a stylish gift box. The whisky was distilled on the April 12 since in Sherry cask number 3691.

    This cask was selected for the exceptional quality of the mature malt whisky. Bottled this summer at 54.9% ABV, the whisky has not been chill-filtered so as to retain its full flavours. Only 312 bottles were produced and each bottle has been individually numbered. The bottle label also records the cask number and the date of distillation and bottling.

    Just to let you know; the inaugural launch of the 1981 Bourbon cask completely sold out in the first month – so you better be quick of the mark for this one!!


    Taste profile:

    Colour: Radiant, golden mahogany

    Nose: Luscious, sweet, nutty-mature liquid fruit-cake dusted with crushed sultana, easing to drier, spicy oak tones

    Palate: Sherry trifle, glacé cherries and muscovado sweetness, all nicely balanced with a spicy, mature oak note of cigar boxes. Deliciously complex.

    Finish: Cocoa, vanilla and fudge climb to a dried-date climax.

  • World Whiskies Award


    There are many prestigious awards and commendations to be won for Whiskies, but none as elegant as the “World Whiskies Awards”, the World’s Best Whisky Awards.

    Hundreds of whiskies from all around the world battle it out during three intensive blind tasting rounds, for the coveted title of ‘World's Best Whiskies’. The whiskies are divided up into categories of regions, therefore the most illustrious Speysides, Islays, Lowlands, Highlands, Japanese, African, North American are put face to face with their neighbours. It is purely down to the bottled perfection of the local characteristics of each unique region.

    The panel of Judges are drawn from the best drinks journalists and retailers across the world, with industry representatives made up of master blenders, distillers and brand ambassadors in the final round.

    This is no easy feat, therefore when Tomintoul 33 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky won “BEST SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT”, we thought that we would let you know!
