Tomintoul 18yr Sauternes Cask Finished Whisky
A tasty Tomintoul here, distilled back in 2002! This expression was initially set aside to age in ex-bourbon barrels, but was eventually given a new home in casks that previously held Sauternes from Chateau Piada in France.
Sauternes is a type of sweet wine, known for its... Well, its sweetness. As such, a hearty helping of that sweetness has been imparted to this Tomintoul single malt. With its nickname being "The Gentle Dram", we reckon this additional sweetness will make for a rather fantastic tipple.
