  1. Snerik scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Don’t water it! It’s very bad and drowns imminently. Amazing nose! And yes, good stuff! 
    • Nose
      First note: delicate raisins. No sherry bomb kind! It reminds me of some sort of candy (the best kind imaginable), but more complex and enjoyable. Dried peach, dried mango, pineapple jam, red apples, orange. The nose is extremely fascinating and really enjoyable. But there’s freshness to it, notes of cucumber and some herb. 
    • Taste
      Tannic, more typical sherry notes here. Raisins, dates and a little leather. But the tropical fruits are in the mixture, there’s a lot to it. But there’s also citrus! Bitter citrus notes. 
    • Finish
      The finish is little woody and much less fruit. Long and not quite as powerful. Oily, almost ashy in a sense. All this together with those bitter citrus notes.

  5. Rom scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Very fruity nose: exotic fruits including pineapple and yellow fruits (peach, apricot), floral (pink), oak and vanilla. The soft texture is a wave of velvet. In the finish the wood makes its appearance, mixes with vanilla then increases in intensity until becoming too present. A very nice nose but the final prevents this whisky to rise to the highest level.

  6. Ivynor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Difficult to note this whisky, with a very classy nose (around 90) and a suite, certainly good quality, but below. 87+ / 88 -
    • Nose
      The first rendering made me think of a sauternes finish, with very fresh notes of yellow fruits. Little by little, the nose becomes more and more fine and fruity: peach, apricot, plum ... with floral and woody touches. Really very nice.
    • Taste
      Slightly creamy texture, not too sweet, always on yellow fruits, but more indented, this time with more wood, vanilla, and some vegetal notes. Too bad there is not as much perfume as the nose.
    • Finish
      Much more wooded, "old" oak very marked, still a little fruit but light years of the nose.

  7. tomy63 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The nose is beautiful but the result is much more disappointing, as for many Tomintoul one wonders if he did not spend a little time in cask, but the nose would have been so mesmerizing?
    • Nose
      expressive, very fresh and very fruity (citrus, apricot, peach, passion fruit, maybe also mango, banana ...), some floral notes, some wax, honey. Superb!
    • Taste
      below the nose, the attack is quite fruity, tart, in the nose, but it falls quickly enough, the finish is woody, spicy, with a little cereal, lack of power.
    • Finish
      good length, but a little dry, spices, cereals, wood.

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Wow, this is by far the best Tomintoul I have tasted to date. The bottle
    is not cheap (around 160 EUR), but then again, this whisky is over four decades
    old.
    • Nose
      The nose is quite different. Very expessive and more fruity. Oranges and
      grapefruit jump out, sprinkled with brown sugar. Add some roasted almonds in
      the mix and a pinch of cloves. Could this be a sherry cask?
    • Taste
      It has a good body. A lot of citrus (oranges and grapefruit again),
      cloves return and some Mandarine Napoléon (a Belgian mandarin liqueur).
      Somewhat waxy and bitter. Very spicy, mind you.
    • Finish
      The finish, spicy with orange zest, is wonderfully long.
