Whisky Reviews for Tomintoul 21-year-old

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.22 points

  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Quite complex, versatile, but very specific whisky. For an amateur. Slightly doubled, with a mushroom train.
    • Nose
      Integrated, multifaceted, you can feel the shutter speed. The first nose is coffee, oatmeal cookies, spices, fruits. Deeper - mushrooms, paint shades and for some reason a creamy note.
    • Taste
      Apple seeds, hazelnuts, crumbly cookies, vanilla, pear.
    • Finish
      Medium in duration, full of spices, fruit tones, with strong oak bitterness, with a bright malt component and with a distinct flavor of dried mushrooms!

  2. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Oaky and mortar.
    • Nose
      Exudes maturity. Orange blossom honey, summer fruits and new mown hay frolic with a delicate nougat sweetness.
    • Taste
      Subtle balance of malty sweetness and spicy oak tones. Mature fruit cake flavours emerge, tinged also with hints of cigar-box. Light complex.
    • Finish
      Drying without hurry with climbing spiciness.

  7. Achany scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    quite a lot of vanilla in this one, with some drops of honey. a bit grassy, malty as well. it is well balanced, nearly nothing to complain about. a very "clean" malt. Good Single Malt, I would have like a bit mor ABV. (WSZ17)

    N: Rounded fruity/malty number, perfectly full at 40%.
    T: This 21yo’s age and pedigree is shown through the malty sour fruits.
    F: Creamy lactose and chalk leading to a long milky vanilla finish.
    C: Identifiably Tomintoul with an improved recipe that doesn’t greatly suffer from its minimal bottling strength.Scores a B
