Tomintoul - The only place I can find this whisky is the Duty Free Shop at the Bermuda Airport. Such a shame as I really enjoy it.

My first purchase was two bottles as a test on a business trip from Bermuda to Hong Kong with an overnight layover in Toronto as I had a brother living there.

We opened a bottle after a few rounds of backgammon and thoroughly enjoyed the drink on ice.

We drank both bottles that evening while enjoying backgammon, poker and remembering times of fishing lobster as kids with our father (pictured above).

The sun was up before we knew it and I had to catch my ride to the airport. We finished the last couple of sips the bottles had to offer and I will remember this as as one of the best evenings I had with my brother. The flight to Hong Kong was more enjoyable than could be I expected.

After 9 years living in Bermuda, the only souvinier I request of friends is a bottle of Tamintoul.

Slainte Dad.
