Tomintoul

Tomintoul 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Quite a muscular Speysider. The perfect dram to buck you up after a woodland walk mushroom-picking on a cold November day.

Tomintoul 12 Years Old Portwood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 No real complexity. Maybe longer in cask would have helped. Compare to the Penderyn.

Tomintoul 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Slightly more grainy and less fruity than I remember.

Tomintoul 1976 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A good example of integration. A dram in balance.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Tomintoul 1976 Vintage
- Scotland - 40.00%
8 A big initial impact then a slow gentle falling away.Worth a look.

Tomintoul 1995 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A charmer and well done Tomintoul for taking the non-chill filtered,no colouring route. Have as a summer time aperitif.

Tomintoul 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Normally thought of as a light malt but this is a rich, viscous expression.

Tomintoul Oloroso Sherry Cask 12 Years Old
- Scotland - 40.00%
7 Very shy almost embarassed. Don't be, Tomintoul.Shout it out!

Tomintoul Peated
- Scotland - 40.00%
7 An attractive dram for sure,but just lacks impetus.

Tomintoul Single Peated Malt Scotch Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Pleasant and easy-going.

Tomintoul Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
7 ?I was expecting more oak on the palate. A definite sherry influence. Fruit and wood are well integrated. Reminds me of calvados!

Tomintoul Vintage Sherry Cask 1977
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
7 ?Fairly lightweight, with a couple of decent Tapas-influenced twists.

Dewar Rattray Tomintoul 1975 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.50%
7 Slightly angular. Not a lot seems to have happened.

Mackillop's Choice Tomintoul 1966
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.50%
7 Delicate, and definitely Speyside, but not quite as elegant as some expressions I have tasted.
