TASTING NOTE: Tomintoul Distillery is located near to the village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland in the prestigious Glenlivet Estate at the heart of the Speyside region. The high altitude, pure air and fine water from the Ballantruan Spring, combine to create the special quality of Tomintoul - the gentle dram. Master distiller Robert Fleming has created an aromatic, yet complex and elegant whisky with this. It has spices, marmalade, barley and touch of florals with a candied ginger and orange peel finish. A dram that fascinates to the end. Score - 95 (Margaret Swaine, winealign.com, Jan. 19, 2013) Price $ 119.95
