  1. DramALife scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    S 7
    H2H comparison with SMWS 89.13 which was FF ex-bourbon. The key Tomintoul characters are there albeit a bit thin even with the age and extra ABV. The 1+ year Fino finish seems to fight against the distillate rather than elevating it by giving it a lighter nose & mouthfeel. This does not feel 16yo due to the lack of oakiness, even compared to 89.13 which is 7yo. IMHO Tomintoul is doing great with the bourbon cask, putting sherry into the play is simply taking away its uniqueness.

    81-85 - Another dram welcomed
    • Nose
      84 84
      Rich, juicy green grapes, almost sugary. Orchard fruits basket. Mildly creamy vanilla. Dry & fizzy spices at the back. Raw ramen noodles. A whiff of dry vermouth and wet grass. A whiff of burnt matches.

      Drops of water bring out the oak and dryness, making it slightly pungent.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Powerful spices with creamy sherry mouthfeel. Black pepper, candied ginger, nutmeg. Pears, wild strawberries. Porridge. Candied Buddha's Hand. Slightly drying oak.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short, mouth-warming finish, slightly disappointing. Cooked malt and drying oak lingering.
