  1. DJ_Howard did not rate this whisky Newbie

    Had a wee dram over a friend's place over the fireplace. very nice. The sherry influence, oak tannins, well-cooked raisins, old bookshelf. Long lingering finish.

  4. The_Osprey scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Tomintoul 38 yo 1977 (cask 3700) vintage single cask 54.9%.

    One of the 'special' (or at least very expensive) drams consumed in honour of the birth of my son, June 2021.

    Aroma - sherry and honey, highlighter pen, permanent marker, bit too spiky. Over time the heat slackens off but is replaced by a little dish water over the sherried notes.

    Taste is spicy, boozy, strong sherry vibes, just a dense syrupy soupy sherried flavour leading to chilli flakes. Just very sherry dominant rather than complex with distillery character, which isn’t really my bag. Very one-dimensional but certainly intense in what it delivers.

    Not much to say about the profile. It's perfectly fine but there are similar, better things available much, much cheaper. But we all knew that already and the selling/talking point here, and the fun, is in the age statement rather than the flavour. 3.25/78
