The Tomintoul Cigar Malt Parejo Oloroso Sherry Cask Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been specially created by Master Distiller, Robert Fleming, who is celebrating his 30th year as the Manager at Tomintoul Distillery.
Tomintoul Cigar Malt is a rich, complex and robust whisky, bottled at 43% ABV. Robert Fleming personally selected an intricate combination of Tomintoul single malts from specially selected vintages, which he has carefully balanced with some rare peated Tomintoul single malt. Each of these individual single malts has been either matured fully or finished in hand-selected Oloroso sherry butts, sourced from partner bodegas in Andalucia, Spain.
Robert Fleming, Master Distiller commented:
“I am incredibly proud to release this new expression of Tomintoul, as I personally selected the range of Tomintoul single malts that make up this extremely complex and unique whisky. The Tomintoul Cigar Malt has the perfect balance of sweetness and spice, with a rich, smoky background.”
The Tomintoul Cigar Malt is also referred to as Tomintoul Cigar Malt Parejo, because it has been created to be the perfect ‘Parejo’ (Spanish for “partner”) to the world’s finest cigars. The rich and sweet oloroso sherry notes, creamy malt profile and gentle peat smoke make this single malt the perfect accompaniment to savour alongside your favourite cigar or just to appreciate and enjoy by itself.
The attractive and impactful packaging has been created to remind consumers of timeless cigar tubes and cigar boxes highlighting the connection between a fine single malt Scotch whisky and highest quality cigars.
