But overall this is a very pleasant whisky, the best Tomintoul I have tasted so far, and very interesting for sure, one that I will remember.
Ooh, a lot of alcohol at first. Accompanied by some citrus fruitiness and a mineral edge. Later on more floral notes, plants, organic. Very fresh nose. After the acohol slows down in the nose, more sweetness arrives, vanilla, caramel.
Very intense from scratch, a lot of alcohol, again with some citrus fruits and floral influences. Very fresh impression again. Unlike the nose, where alcohol slows down after some while, the body remains very alcohol driven, intense. Later on some sweetness as well, vanilla and honey.
Still very strong and intense, some peach now, and a pretty bitter note underneath. Pretty long finish, with some wood, ice cream sticks. Here the alcohol works at its 'best', giving an anaesthetizing and drying effect in the mouth. It remains intense.
