Tomintoul Seiridh Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 40% Age: NAS Country: Scotland
Tomintoul distillery is built in the highest village in the highlands of Scotland and can sometimes be very hard to access due to the road being blocked with snow and ice in the winter. However hard it is to get here the storage facilities at Tomintoul are huge and boast a warehouse that can accomodate ten million litres of malt within the grounds. The water source is the local Ballantruan Spring and with this water they produce about 3,000,000 litres of spirit annually. The current owners are Angus Dundee plc and the distillery has four stills to produce the spirit. This spirit is mainly used and a very valuable contribution to Whyte and MacKay’s blends.
You should expect a light bodied and smooth single malt, not very complex and great for after dinner. This single malt is an excellent whisky to start your whisky journey and enjoy for many decades later with vast choice of age statements any whisky enthusiast would want in their collection.
The Tomintoul Seiridh (Pronounced “sheh-ree”) comes from the Scottish Gaelic for sherry. Finished in a first-fill Oloroso sherry butts after initially ageing in American oak ex Bourbon casks. The Tomintoul Master Distiller Robert Fleming hand-picked the sherry casks from a family-owned bodega in Andalucia, Spain.
