    A Tomintoul from The Old Friends series by Michel Reick. The whisky comes from a PX Sherry Hogshead - no idea how long it was in there. The color is not exaggeratedly dark, but beautifully golden.
    • Nose
      First come creamy vanilla notes with crème brûlée, but then there is also a sour note with sour plum juice that is slightly tipping. Might go in the direction of butyric acid and isn't really pretty.
    • Taste
      The whisky has a sweet base note, which is, however, masked by sharp alcohol. With a little water, the whisky becomes softer and creamier. Despite this, the alcohol remains as a sharp background. However, a vanilla aroma develops rather than a sherry aroma with ripe, dry fruits. Here, too, it is the plum must that adds to the sweet base note. The buttery, slightly cheesy tone is still there though.
    • Finish
      There's a slight mustiness coming out of the back, which isn't bad but suggests that Hogshead might not have been the freshest.

      This will not be a favorite whisky either, which may be due to the basic distillate, but which the aging could not add any convincing character to either. The slight butyric acid bothers me. Not a bad whisky, but not really convincing either. Tomintoul is a working horse from Angus Dundee, has a relatively short fermentation. So far, the whiskys from the distillery have not convinced me.

  5. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N: Very PX-ey, not in a rubbery or sickly sweet way but with a sherry-over-ice cream nuttiness. Delicious.

    T: Contemporary~managed and delicious I tells ya. Here, we’ve a situation where a dominant cask can still allow for the distillery character to show through. There’s Tomintoul’s flouriness coupled with colourful bone dry-ish sweet sherry, a combo that works a treat in this example. Again, there’s no rubbery gackiness.

    F: Ticks over to the finish with a solid delivery throughout.

    C: A loveable sweet youthful 13yo. Thumbs up.

    A mixture of Toffifee and Fudge! Can't complain!
