Tomintoul is an off the radar Speyside distillery featuring age statement bottlings from 10-21 years old as well as some other vintages. This is the Peaty tang, a vatting of 4-5 year old peated malt and 8 year old unpeated.
Nose: Clean and delicate with apple brandy, honey baked pears, some rose floral notes a touch of cream, the ‘peaty tang’ is an earthy cereal and grains with some roast ham. With water no real change here, and at 40% there isn’t too much need for it.
Pallet: gritty smoke on entry then fades and develops into cereal and fruit tones with honey, all front of the tongue. With water less fruity and the interesting edition of curry powder.
Finish: fruits fade into smoked honey cured bacon then some sooty fire and icing sugar. With water much the same
Mark neat – 8.2, with water 8.2
This is a nice mixture of a relatively delicate spirit with some peaty notes. Nothing special but worth trying
