Whisky Reviews for Tomintoul 1992 NCS
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.64 points
- I quite liked it but very unbalanced in my view and difficult to score.
Candy sugars, grapefruit, jam sponge, apple and malted mild biscuits.
Quite sweet on pineapple and custard but there is also some grassy dryness.
Fruit pastilles mixed in with pastry.
Quite long on candied sweetness and a little dry.
- Tomintoul 15 yo 1992 (55,5%, Norse Cask Selection 2008, hogshead CS059, 227 btl.)
Nose: malty with fresh oak and citrus. Apples and pears. Light Speyside style. Soft floral notes and some hay. A little wax maybe. Mouth: there’s the same sweet maltiness with orchard fruits and vanilla, but it’s now slightly harsher. Liquorice and a salty tang. Some bitterish herbal notes as well. Finish: long, half fruity, half bitter.
This Tomintoul starts gentle and slightly boring, but takes off on the palate and bursts into different directions. A bit of Speyside anarchy, quite entertaining even tough it’s not entirely succeeded. Sold out. Thanks Bert.
- Also available in 200 ml. and 350 ml. bottles.
