Whisky Reviews for Tomintoul With A Peaty Tang

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.58 points

  1. coldsun scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    IMHO this drink is underestimated. It is a very interesting combination of peated, iodine Islay and sweet, flower Speyside tastes.

    Sweet peat... 

    this is right out there with Islay on the peat, but not briny though.

    Smoke from the mainland of Scotland (if you can call it the main island) is now much more than just an experiment. However, this drop quality does not reach Islay level, but it is still worth a try. Youth is barely noticeable, the smoke obscures quite well.

    • Nose
      aromatic campfire smoke with vanilla, sweetness with caramel, salty, fine spiciness, oaky-malty, after a few minutes it becomes more open: Gali-melon syrup, pine nuts and hazelnuts, heather honey, some raisins, some apple juice, seaweed, a touch of white tequila, possibly Resin and uhu liquid glue
    • Taste
      Spicy-sweet, cold aromatic smoke, malt, creamy with toffee, oak, some Zitus, also raisins, chocolate mousse, cocoa, ginger with aromas of sandalwood and juniper
    • Finish
      warming, fine wood smoke, toffee, spicy with some oak, vanilla, slightly sweet, later pepper, ashes, malt, cocoa
