Whisky Reviews for Tomintoul 10-year-old

27 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.45 points

  1. Xstream scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Especially toffee which predominates. Soft. Also some vanilla, caramel, oak.
    Not very complex, but a delicious everyday drink with, for example, a piece of chocolate. Also great as a desert drink.

  3. Syleo scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    All in all a well tolerated, rather gentle malt, which has quite attractive potential with its characteristics, but will probably not be one of my favorites in this 10-year variant.

      A positive surprise on the nose, no doubt. The tomintoul comes with 40%, but it throws aromas around properly. As soon as the light nail polish remover has evaporated through sufficient breathing time and resin and fresh oak wood emerge in its place, he blows a flower pot with hyacinths and heather around my nose at the same time. In addition to the floral impressions, there are ripe yellow pears and strawberries, also a little apple compote and mango, all combined in the fragrance of a freshly opened packet of Haribo Tropifrutti.

      When tasting, the tomintoul lives up to its slogan as "The Gentle Dram", initially there is no alcoholic burning sensation, at most a slight tickling on the back of the palate. However, I can't shake off a slight disappointment or at least a surprise. The intensity and the bite indicated by the aroma when nosing are simply missing, but that is probably due to the 40%. A little bit of sweetness and oak bitterness and a certain spice are noticeable, somehow flowery I can think of as an association, moreover light coffee beans.

      The short to medium length finish leaves mainly liquorice and a lot of bitter wood tones.

    A simple, nothing wrong and indeed nothing special standard bottling.

  6. maltaholic scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Not bad.
    • Nose
      It has a very aromatic nose, a typical bourbon. The barrel dominates in the note, spicy and soft.
    • Taste
      The seasoning and the wood remain in the taste. Juniper, cloves. Later some vanilla.
    • Finish
      The finish is short, spicy.

  9. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Cedar and vanilla note upfront, follow by airy honey and catch the rich malt on the top half. Light and gentle.

    Palate:- Thin and shy nature. Soft and easy on palate. Light sweet note with vanilla. Touch of ash.

    Finish:- Smooth and dry, short. Soft bitterness lingers.
