Scotch Whisky Taste Master 2020

The Scotch Whisky Masters was the first 2020 tasting to take place in a world hit by the Covid‐19 pandemic. A lockdown in the UK meant the tasting was held remotely from the judges’ London homes in June, while maintaining the same high standards and anonymity the competition is renowned for.

Due to the impact of the pandemic, a second iteration of The Scotch Whisky Masters took place in September. But one thing remained unaffected – the high quality of whiskies that continue to pour out of Scotland.

Tomintoul 25 Years Old was particularly impressive, picking up a Master medal in the Single Malt: Speyside – Aged 19‐30 Years category. The judges found flavours of “coconut, almonds, allspice, underlying malt and gingerbread” in the whisky.

Owned by Angus Dundee Distillers, Tomintoul 25 Years Old is matured for at least 25 years in Bourbon casks and bottled at 43% ABV.
