Tlàth 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.
It serves as an entry point to the core range representing great value for money.
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.
