Whisky Reviews for Tomintoul 15-year-old

- Actually a pleasant port maturation. In terms of taste, not exactly my case, since everything is disappearing and there is no lasting impression.
With the price for me no purchase option.
Nose seems closed at first, only really opens for me after spending more time in the glass. Then there are ripe berries with a nice sweetness. Light tobacco with a mustiness of an old attic. Aromas did not last long and he gradually flattened out. A bit of a shame because the first impression is positive.
Malty soft start. Add the red berries and the dry tobacco. A light oak spice also comes across pleasantly. Looks a bit thin and watery.
short finish, drier and slightly bitter after cocoa.
- Port wine barrel maturation is quite successful. Begins sweet and quite soft in the mouth. Over time and in the aftertaste, a beautiful, powerful peppery spice develops as a counterpoint. Overall, a good, if not too complex and exciting bottling.
sweet and fruity; intense aromas of red berries (strawberry, blackberry); Strawberry jam; some vanilla; Notes of pipe tobacco
silky and full-bodied; sweet; red fruits again; getting a little drier over time
slightly dry; sweet; the red berries remain; Caramel; in addition there is an increasingly peppery, spicy note; slightly bitter note remains
port, hint of anise
- Mortar sweetness.
Summer fruits, strawberries and blackberries tempered with some toffee sweetness and cigar-box spiciness.
Lush clean malt modified by fruity sweet Port and some spicy oak tones.
Full and rich with lingering herbal spices and toffee sweetness.
- Nicely done, a good overall package. Price between 80 and 90 euros - but you get 15 years, 46%, not cool filtered. You have to judge PLV yourself, if you like Portweinnachreifungen - definitely good.
Sweetish, fruity red berries. Quite light, vanilla notes are added. Subtle coffee aromas, pleasant hint of bitterness (maybe some oak?).
Vollmunding with good start, intense sweetness, with the time getting drier. Caramel notes, however, are sweetly dominated. This fruity sweetness is clearly dominant.
Sweet again, red berries, jammy. Strong spicy.

livelier than the glencadam 17 portwood, this one has more complexity, plus the flavors of tomintoul are more suited for port
