  1. goran did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    From Whiskyfun:

    Tomintoul 43 yo 1967/2011 (49.8%, Liquid Sun, bourbon hogshead, 209 bottles)  Colour: pale gold. Nose: this is both frankly fresher and grassier, which could be good or bad, we’ll wee while having our first sips. We aren’t much on cider or beer anymore, rather on broken branches, cut grass, fennel, fresh butter. It seems that the cask was much less active, hence the lighter colour – and the fresher nose. Let’s see… Mouth: exactly the same whisky as the Mo Or, even the extra-4% don’t change much. Oranges and grapefruits, melon, light honey… The tannicity is rather earthy and not really tea-ish, which I enjoy. But there is a little mint. Finish: long, clean, not too tannic, not drying. Some very nice oranges remaining. Comments: excellent. Like most old Tomintouls, it’s not immensely complex, but it’s full, fresh and most enjoyable. And hey, 43 years (is that it, S.?) SGP:651 - 88 points.

    Tomintoul 43 yo 1967 (49,8%, Liquid Sun 2011, bourbon hogshead, 209 btl.)

    Nose: elegant nose with a complex mix of dried apricot, papaya and melon. Some tangerine, maybe lychee. Quite some almond / marzipan notes. Nice spicy notes as well. Mouth: good attack, slightly oily, followed by some soft oak and spices (pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon). Citrus flavours (orange, grapefruit, lemon) and yellow apple. Some leather. Very faint hints of bitterness and salt. Everything is coating in a nice sort of grain dust / flour veil as if it wanted to underscore its age. Finish: medium long, drying now with hints of fruit tea and banana skin.

    We already knew Tomintoul from the 1960’s can be great (especially on the nose). Compared to cask #2559 bottled by A.D. Rattray, this one has a similar profile with more punch. Around € 190.

    Score: 89/100

    I would like to put a higher note for these many fruits that give a certain class to all but the lack of complexity is a problem. Finally there are many different fruits that mix, so in a sense this Tomintoul is complex; but not the way I want it to be ... And even if we like fruit, they lack the exuberance to be self-sufficient. Tasted blind.
    • Nose
      Fruit cocktail, some confits, compote or jam. Spices. Wax, some pastry notes. Pretty grassy influence. After 10 minutes it is quite simple, which does not prevent to be very pleasant. Very fine smoke.
    • Taste
      Nice attack, always on exotic fruits with some red fruits. After about ten seconds more bitter notes are added.
    • Finish
      Liquoreuse, on cooked fruits, in syrup.

  6. MacMenM scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Taste
