Tomintoul releases 21yo single malt

21st February, 2017 by Nicola Carruthers

Angus Dundee Distillers has launched its new single malt Scotch whisky, Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet 21 Years Old, into key European and selected world markets.

The new edition has been created from a selection of mature whisky from Bourbon casks

Bottled at 40% abv, the new edition has been created from a selection of mature whisky from Bourbon casks, all of which have spent 21 years in cool Scottish warehouses.

On the nose, it is described as having notes of “orange blossom honey, summer fruits and new mown hay frolic with a delicate nougat sweetness”.

While on the palate, it has a “subtle balance of malty sweetness and spicy oak tones” and “mature fruit cake flavours emerge, tinged also with hints of cigar box.”

Duncan Baldwin, brand development director, commented: “In a time where aged stock is at a premium it is very pleasing to be able to re-introduce a 21-year-old expression.”

Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet 21 Years Old is supplied in cases of 6 x 70cl bottles in individual cylindrical cartons.

It will retail for around £99 per 70cl bottle in the UK and €119 in Europe.

The new offering joins no-age-statement whisky Tomintoul Tlàth and a 40-year-old quadruple cask, Tomintoul Aged 40 Years, both launched last year.
