Tomintoul 30 Year Old - Robert Fleming - 30th Anniversary -2nd Edition - Limited Edition - Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Release 2
This 30 Year Old Tomintoul Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the 2nd Edition bottling specially selected by Robert Fleming to commemorate his 30th year as custodian of Tomintoul Distillery.
A unique and full-bodied single malt, it has a depth and richness of flavour that has developed over 30 years of maturation in the fresh, pure air of the Cairngorm Mountains.
This specially selected single malt spent its first 29 years maturing in American Bourbon casks before being finished in an antique Pedro Ximénez Sherry butt, which was hand-selected by Robert Fleming in Jerez, Spain, for its final year.
The cask yielded exactly 700 bottles at 51.1% alc/vol.
The third and last edition of the Robert Fleming anniversary bottlings will be released later in 2021
Nose: Aromas of sweet raisins, ripe plums and dates followed by a mellow background of vanilla, cocoa powder and a delicate oak spiciness.
Palate: Rich layers of dried fruit and mincemeat pies coupled with mellow heather honey, marzipan, maple syrup and baking spices.
Finish: Luxurious and warming with soft prunes, dried figs and coffee grounds fading into a cedar and cinnamon linger.
