Tomintoul Scotch Whisky Review

Tomintoul Scotch whisky distillery was established in 1964 to meet the demand of malt whisky needed for blending.

 

Tomintoul village is the second highest in Scotland. The distillery lies 5 miles to the north and draws its water from the Ballantruan Spring.

 

Tomintoul the gentle dram, as worded on the bottle is a good discription

of the distillery style.

 

Generally the whisky is unpeated although they do peated versions,

"with a peaty tang" and "Old Ballantruan" which is a more heavily peated

malt bottled at 50%.
