Fry Says 'Aye' To Master of Malt Whisky
CROWBOROUGH, England, October 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Online whisky merchant Master of Malt has received a ringing endorsement from Stephen Fry, who proclaims their 19-year-old Tomatin to be his new favourite dram.
Britain's favourite celebrity, TV host, comic actor, raconteur and all-round wit saluted the Highland single malt in a letter to Master of Malt. In typically baroque fashion, Fry praises the whisky as "astoundingly delicious... like ethereal Dundee Cake" and goes on to give a description of Tomatin:
"...one of the most magnificent yet approachable malts I've ever had the delight of sampling. It is full, rich and malty as one would hope, but with a delightful zinging topnote of peardrops and peachiness that softens into a magnificent plummy grandeur. I'm fully aware of how pretentious I'm sounding, but I don't care."
Fry's effusive praise only corroborates what the whisky world knew already. Renowned whisky critic Jim Murray gave Master of Malt's Tomatin (http://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/master-of-malt-single-cask-19-year-old-tomatin-cask-strength-whisky/) 96 points in his 2009 whisky bible - just 1.5 points shy of Ardbeg Uigeadail, the official 'best whisky in the world'. The Master of Malt Tomatin is a cask-strength, non-chill filtered, single cask whisky bottled at 57.6% ABV.

It's not the first time that Fry has declared his love of whisky. On the release of his 1994 novel The Hippopotamus, which over-zealous fans marked by inundating him with toy hippos, he said: "it really is very kind of them. But I have decided that my next book will be called '18 Year Old Malt Whisky'."
Whisky-lovers the world over can now add the erudite Fry to their ranks, happily quoting Stephen's assertion that this dram is "stunning from first nosing to final swallow.... The 19 year old Tomatin is now officially my favourite whisky."
