Tomintoul 16 Year Old is known as 'the gentle dram'. Aged in bourbon casks, it's rich, nutty and spicy with notes of almonds, vanilla and a buttery texture. The distillery may be one of Speyside's lesser-known producers, but it produces some cracking whiskies such as this which offer great value for money.

Tomintoul is a young distillery in Scottish terms, only built in 1964 by whisky-broking companies Haig & Macleod and W&S Strong. For most of its life, its main purpose has been to product malt whisky for blends, and single malt production remains low. Now under the ownership of Angus Dundee, the distillery's whiskies continue to gain recognition, and a peated malt, Old Ballantruan, is also produced here.
