This 25-year-old Tomintoul single malt Scotch whisky was introduced to the distillery’s range in the mid of 2015. Tomintoul distillery was in Speyside, this distillery has gained a reputation for producing relaxing and gentle whisky.
On the nose: pretty fresh stuff. Very gentle, you might say. Herbal and grassy. Citrus with brine. Floral but not overly so. Hay barns. A couple of custard creams.
Palate: lovely texture – very oily and viscous, but the texture is pretty much the only thing to get excited about. There are many classic notes here that follow the nose: it’s grassy, malty, chewy. Just a touch of honey to indicate sweetness. Dried hops and digestive biscuits. Sweet apples. Toasted almonds. There’s a little touch of bitterness from the wood, but the whole thing is very approachable and mellow.
