Tomintoul Distillery has paid homage to its scenic surroundings in the Cairngorms National Park in a gift pack for its latest expression.

The new release, Tomintoul 18 Years Old Single Malt, features the renowned park on its special presentation box, which includes a bottle of the expression and two tumblers.

Pictured on the packaging is Loch A'An, the source of the River A'An, which flows past the distillery on the Glenlivet Estate on its way to join the River Spey. The 18 Years Old is currently only available in the gift pack, which will be sold in Europe and Asia.

Tomintoul Distillery’s master distiller, Robert Fleming, said: “I am absolutely delighted to release this new expression from our distillery in the heart of the Cairngorms. It perfectly represents the unique style of Tomintoul Single Malt, with its complexity, smoothness and superb balance."

Tasting notes supplied by the distillery say the 18 Years Old has an elegant and fruity nose with aromas of cooked apples and vanilla sponge cake, while the palate is creamy and textured with layers of tinned apricots, crème anglais and amaretto biscuits. The finish is described as warming and sweet with notes of nutmeg butter pastry, heather honey and vanilla toffee.
