Tomintoul Distillery announces the release of Tlath
Tlath is pronounced Tlah and is Gaelic meaning –gentle, mellow. This description mirrors the term
the gentle dram which is used on all editions of Tomintoul.
Tomintoul Tlàth is the result of a very careful selection of individual casks. The hand-chosen collection consists of whiskies of various ages matured in first-class American oak bourbon barrels.
Marketing Director, Duncan Baldwin said: “After experimenting with different cask types and flavour styles we have produced a very exciting whisky. The result is this superb release of Tomintoul, “Tlàth.” Tasting Notes:
Colour: Golden Straw
Nose: Quintessentially Speyside. Light, with some sweet toffee and vanilla and hints of mint leaf and citrus peel.
Palate: Light and creamy. Lively white pepper and some oak-driven spiciness dance on the tongue with background layers of nutmeg and toasted vanilla.
Finish: Spicy with notes of shortbread and fresh mint
Tlàth is bottled at 40% vol and packaged in cases of 6 x 70cl clear glass bespoke bottles with individual cylindrical canisters.
The new edition will be available in key European, Duty Free and selected world markets.
Typically, Tlàth will retail at under £30 per bottle in the UK and under Euros 39 in Europe.
