Each year, just one “Taste Master” Award is given to the very best whisky in the whole competition, as judged by members of the expert panel. In 2020, the honour of winning this award went to Tomintoul 25 Year Old, a beautifully rich and complex single malt whisky, which perfectly demonstrates the use of bourbon barrels too mature this unique Speyside whisky.
This 25-year-old Tomintoul single malt Scotch whisky was introduced to the distillery’s range in the first half of 2015. An exciting release for Tomintoul, a distillery that has resided in Speyside since 1964 and has gained a reputation for producing laid-back, mellow whiskies – hence their tagline as ‘The Gentle Dram’.
