Tomintoul 40 Year Quadruple Cask
Tomintoul // Speyside, Scotland
The Tomintoul Distillery is found on the Glenlivet Estate in the Scottish Highlands. Known for air drying their barley, Tomintoul bills itself as "the gentle dram." This rare expression is blended from four hogsheads filled in 1974. Originally intended for use in other bottlings, Master Distiller Robert Fleming felt that these four barrels deserved to stand alone. Presented in individually numbered, hand-made crystal decenters, the whisky is bottled at 43.1% after forty years of maturation.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
