1989 Douglas Laing & Co. XOP Xtra Old Particular Tomintoul 30 Year Old Single Cask Limited Release Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Angus Dundee PLC have been the owners of Tomintoul since 2000. While they continue to use the bulk of the distillery for their numerous blends, over the last decade significant energy has been invested in bottling and marketing Tomintoul as a single malt of distinction. Having said that, serious age statements remain uncommon. At the time of writing, this is by far the oldest expression we've had available for years. Drawn from an x Bourbon barrel in 2020 at 52.8% Alc./Vol. with an outturn of 280 bottles, it comes non chill filtered. Very limited stocks.
Notes from the bottlers... Nose: Rich, darkly malted, intriguingly spiced and fruity on its typically Speyside nose. Palate: Warming and ginger spiced as the big palate opens showing later Muscovado sugar and the gentlest oak - all running to a stewed fruit and vanilla custard finish.
