Pure ingredients and the natural environment add to smooth and mellow character of our award-winning Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky, “the gentle dram”.
Tomintoul “With A Peaty Tang” has been made with peated malt barley to give it a deep smoky flavour. This makes “Peaty Tang” very unusual, most distilleries in the Speyside region do not use peat.
Jim Murray is recognised internationally as the leading commentator on the world's whiskies and Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, published yearly, is the world's biggest selling whisky book.

Comments: "A bit more than a tang, believe me! Faultlessly clean distillate that revels in its unaccustomed peaty role."
Sweet and sooty with aromas of campfire smoke, ginger biscuits, coffee grounds and smoked meats with a subtle nettle freshness.
Layers of hazelnut, smoky bacon and treacle toffees mingled with toasted oats, peat smoke and sweet liquorice with lemon zest highlights.
Nutty and smoky with notes of coffee cake, roasted pecans and lingering clove spices
