Angus Dundee bottles 40 year old Tomintoul

Angus Dundee has launched Tomintoul Aged Forty Years, bottled from four American oak hogsheads of single malt Scotch whisky distilled in 1974. The Quadruple Cask Unique & Rare Speyside Glenlivet has been bottled at cask strength 43.1% ABV and packaged in a premium decanter and presentation box.

The quality of the whisky inside these casks, which were discovered in warehouse four of the Tomintoul distillery, master distiller Robert Fleming considered  to be “truly outstanding” and deserving of a special bottling in elegant, premium packaging.

Hand-crafted crystal decanters have been individually numbered and placed in gift boxes, which feature a twin door opening and cushioned padding inside. The wooded exterior is finished in matt black lacquer. Customised spaces on the inside accommodate a crystal glass stopper and an information leaflet. The quadruple cask release is limited and only 500 bottles have been crafted.

Tomintoul Distillery is situated, adjacent to the village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland, in the Glenlivet Estate at the heart of the prestigious Speyside Glenlivet district. The natural environment, high altitude, pure air and the exclusive use of the exceptional quality of water from the Ballantruan Spring in the Cromdale Hills, all combine to enhance the quality of this single malt.

This new release will be available in Europe, Asia and other selected markets with a consumer price of around US$3,750/£2,500/€3,375 per bottle.
