Re: TOMINTOUL - PEATED EXPRESSION - ANY GOOD?
The old bottle was called Old Ballantruan, but at WL Glasgow Tomintoul released a new bottling named "Peaty Tang". Tried it, wanted to like it and thought it was nothing to write home about.
Thought it lacked balance IMHO, to ovbiously peated, rather like the ardmore
I used to be a big fan of Tomitoul OB, until I tried some of the Douglas Laing OMC versions. (I know there are some peaty expressions here BTW)
When I went back to trying the OB I was sorely disappointed. I think they add too much caramel for flavour, and you are left with bitterness at the finish. Shame really. That said if they release any U-CF versions, I'm in there.
