Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky is known as “the gentle dram”. Tomintoul “With A Peaty Tang” has been made with peated malt barley to give it a deep smoky flavour.

Tomintoul (pronounced "Tom-in-to'owl") Peaty Tang is a no-age-statement expression, is distilled in the traditional manner but unusually for a Speyside, it is crafted using peated malted barley to impart a distinctive smoky and heathery flavour.

Tomintoul has been owned and operated by Angus Dundee Distillers since 2000. Originally built in the 1940s, up until a few years ago less than 2-3% of Tomintoul's output was bottled as single malt, the rest making its way into blends like Whyte & McKay.

Their smallish operation with modest exports and low key marketing, belies the facts that the distillery is capable of some serious whiskies - the 33 year old was chosen as best Speyside whisky of 2010 in the Whiskymag World Whiskies Awards.

Tasting Notes
Nose: Heathery smoke, earthy peat, soft oak and creamy caramel.

Palate: Creamy peaty earthiness, cereals, toasted oak, orchard fruits.

Gentle ‘Peat-reek’ flavours expected from a Islay whisky but with a hint of malty nuttiness and fruity sweetness, as you would expect from a Speyside whisky

Finish: The creamy smoke lingers, white pepper and herbal.
