Whisky Reviews for Tomintoul 21-year-old
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.66 points
- A little too gentle for my tastes.
- Not bad but unfortunately it's not deep and thin combo from this 21 yo + 40% whisky. 83/84.
Floral. Honey, caramel, green apple, black tea, nut and earth.
Thin but creamy. Vanilla, citruses, dark chocolate. Touch of fruits and spicy oak.
Medium length, spicy.
- [December, 2014] Finally I emptied a bottle that I bought for 66,50 Euro in September, 2014.
In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5. My notes state an absolutely flawless and nicely balanced dram that is easy to drink. Given its profile I guess they added some older casks to the batch as well (that improve both the complexity and delicateness). I really like it!
- Nose:- Soft and floral fragrant with dusting powder. Fresh strawberry, thin honey and breezes of pine. Soft caramel and toffee. Palate:- Gently dressed with soft spice, thin honey black tea, light
weight on palate. Lack depth as 21YO but velvet and pleasing.
Finish:- Medium length, warming with tinge of sweet vanilla.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- It's not that bad, but it's a bit of a pull on the goal, it's too neutral, a few percent of the extra alcohol would certainly help
Full, fruity scent - butter pears, green apples, woody, a little spice
At first taste vanilla sweet, creamy flavor - later bitter chocolate, oak tones, light cinnamon and citrus
In the reverberation of nuts, malt and woodiness and light spice and salinity at the end - the reverberation is quite long
