Tomintoul 10 Bottling Note

A gentle 10 year old from the Speyside distillery, Tomintoul. This was introduced to their range in 2002, two years after the distillery was bought by Angus Dundee.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Medium-body and well-balanced. There are notes of vanilla fudge and barley. Tones of malt extract and espresso, hints of mochaccino and oak.

Palate: Pleasingly viscous, with notes of barley sugar, toasty cereals, acacia honey and malt extract. Honeycomb, toffee and a touch of vanilla fudge.

Finish: Quite short, yet charming.

Tomintoul 10 Year Old Reviews

Extreme value £££

Very nice, honey and flora. Young but smooth and extremely good value at this money indeed. Excellent starter whiskey!

Excellent

Best I’ve tasted in a long time

My confession

OK, here's the thing. I like it as it is, straight. Lovely whisky for the price. Right up my alley. But if I mix it 50-50 with Aberfeldy, this combination is absolutely gorgeous for my taste buds..! Sorry lads...

Unremarkable but nothing offensive about it

I intend to try every distillery's product that I can, so no regrets. This is light and clean, malty and fruity. No youthful harshness, just mellowness. Would've been nice to try this at 46% without colorant and non-chill filtered.

But as a repeat customer, for the price, I would choose the following malts over this one every time (in order of price as available to me): Speyburn 10, Old Pulteney 12, Glenlivet 12, Glenmorangie 10. They all offer a bit more bite and substance while being quite similar in profile. OP12 tastes a bit older than its age and Glenmo10 offers a bit more complexity.

The only negative about this malt is that it's too smooth and too mellow. That might be exactly what some people want. I'll have to explore the "pastry chef's whisky" notion mentioned below.

Tomintoul: Great, affordable Speyside staples

Soft, gentle, sweet, young Speyside.

If you enjoy the style, step up to the 12 year old sherried expression ...same soft whisky, with a little more punch in the flavours.

Delightful

I first tried this whisky at Tulloch castle in Dingwall, Scotland and I absolutely loved it. Simple ,classic Speyside but so smooth compared to Glenfiddich and Livet 12 years. Doesn't need any water drink neat to pick up all the amazing caramel,toffee,honey,almond,vanilla floral goodness. I really wish this was more common in California it's rare and kind of expensive here otherwise I would always have this in the cabinet. Cheers! The Sugarbear

Soft and Pleasant

Not remarkable (not necessarily a bad thing) by any any standards. Vanilla, caramel, and spice notes with a hint of class. Extremely palatable. Tastes like a blended masterpiece. I loved it.

Easy drinking, short finish but delicious.

Smooth and sweet with some spiced wood notes. No peat or earthy-ness but well-ballanced. A safe bet if you're unsure of the recipient's preferences - I can't imagine anyone actively disliking it.

Fabulous aroma

What a delightful nose all salted caramel and vanilla. There's no great length to the finish but it's pleasan enough.

Delicious

So easy to drink that my wife has finished the bottle whilst I was out.

Staple.

One for the whisky cupboard. Easy on the palate with a nice rounded semi sweet flavour.

The one for desserts.

A lovely gentle dram, mixes in to cream for deserts without causing any bitterness. Got to be the Pastry Chefs Whisky.

Interesting friend!

Always have a bottle of this dram in my whisky bar. Pleasant, enjoyable everyday sipping malt:)
