Tomintoul 12 Oloroso
A gentle 12 year old from the Tomintoul distillery. This was matured in Oloroso sherry casks.
The nose is quite light and well-balanced. There are notes of chewy oak with a toasty feel, notes of sherried peels and sultanas, cut hay and malt extract and a touch of barley sugar. The palate is of medium-body. There are notes of winter berries and blackcurrant preserve, notes of gentle, thin smoke with notes of malt extract and crisp barley sugar with toasty cereals and a soft honey. The finish is of medium-length and well-balanced with a refined subtlety.
Totally loved it

A very sherried sherry monster

Was introduced to this via the "Sherry Monsters" tasting kit and it stood out as being, by some way, my favourite of the bunch. You can really taste the sherry in it, sweet and full-flavoured with a lovely touch of warm spice in the finish. I'm really looking forward to getting more as these sweet, gentle flavours are exactly what I like. This looks likely to become a firm favourite.

OK -- not fabulous
Not to my taste

This is a curious whisky. It is light and balanced with a medium body, true.I tasted something like almonds?
I have to agree with the previous post. For the money, I'm wee disappointed. Not in my top 20, too.

Treated myself to a bottle on holiday. Reminded me of Knockando but had a strong aftertaste, much at odds with the "Gentle Dram" title. Nice, but I wouldn't put it in my top 20.
