Tomintoul Distillery has released a 1976 vintage single malt whisky, the oldest expression ever bottled by the distillery. The previous oldest bottling is the award-winning Tomintoul 27 Year Old.

This limited-edition vintage of just 3,000 bottles is supplied in cases of six.

Duncan Baldwin, brand development director, says: "This whisky has a wonderful nose with hints of rum-soaked raisins and a touch of fruity maltiness. The palate is round and soft with delicate tones of sweetness."

The Tomintoul range now consists of six expressions: Peaty Tang; 10, 16 and 27 Year Old; 12 Year Old finished in oloroso sherry casks and 1976 Vintage.
