This is the 16 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Tomintoul distillery, matured in selected bourbon casks. It was crafted by fourth generation distiller, Robert Fleming. Rather elegant and flavoursome, this one.
Nose: Medium-bodied and punchy. There are notes of stemmy cut hay and dried grasses, a leafy green note and a touch of rooty earth and fudge.
Palate: Notes of boiled sweets, espresso, mochaccino, ground almonds and granary toast with melted butter. Vanilla fudge and thick cream.
Finish: The finish is of good length with notes almond and barley sugar.

My brother gifted me a bottle and changed what I drink forever. I was content with a rather good blended Scotch until the fateful night when we shared a dram of Tomintoul 16 that he had just given me. I cherish my brother and this whiskey.

If you are looking for a smooth, slightly sweet, aromatic whisky then this is your best bet. For the price honestly this cannot be beat. I'm a big fan of Oban 14 and anything Ardbeg (to give you an idea of general taste) but when I want something smooth I go for Tomintoul 16. Anyone saying this is a 1 star whisky either got one bad bottle or has exceptionally poor taste.

Light, bright, easy to drink, and with no off-flavours, this is a nice dram to share with people who haven't developed a more sophisticated whisky palette. I believe it would make a great base for a blended whisky, but it lacks the distinctive character to be a truly memorable single malt. Not sure I'd buy it again, but I did quite enjoy it while I had it, and went through it rather quickly as it's such a pleasant and palatable drink.

Lovely 16 - Silky smooth all on its lonesome - leave the water in the tap & enjoy!

Complex , opens up on adding little water.. shows some fruits & medium body.. pleasant fruity not honeyed but very subtle at back of palate

The range of this Malt just goes from great to fabulousI was lucky quite a few years ago to have the enormous pleasure of tasting a 25 year old and will NEVER forget the fabulous taste unfortunately being an OAP probably will never get that chance again.A Malt among Malts with a taste of the heavens !!!!!

I AGREE WITH DUST COMMENTS. A CRAP 16 Y.O. MALT

I never have been much of a scotch drinker. I didn't like the peaty aftertaste but this scotch is really good. Goes down smooth and has a nice finish.
About ten years ago I was visiting Speyside and came across one small brewary and it was Tomitoul. I visited the brewary and tasted 16 years old tomintoul.I found it very tasting and very smooth going through the throat very nicely. I think it s a Rolls Royce of whiskeys. Since then I am only drinking Tomitoul

The worst 16 I ever tasted. Anonimous.

Tried the 10 year old when last I was in Moray. Liked it; and wanted to buy another. Baxters only had the 16yo so got that instead. Absolutely delicious! Not heavy, sweet and rolls around the mouth beautifully. The previous reviewer must have had a curry for his birthday meal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was given a bottle for my 26th birthday, I am a massive fan of spey whiskeys, single malts and have been for years. In my opinion (as this is a review and i am being honest), this is by far one of the worst from the spey area, to me it was sour with an off flavour that I can only describe as fishy. Everyone I have shared it with also tells me there is something off about it and rejected when i offered them more. I would seriously question the recommendations of anyone who enjoys this whiskey. Be warned.

Lovely and smooth. Leaves the mouth tasting like honey.

This is most certainly a wonderful scotch for the price. It was $60 in upstate ny, got home, sat down after dinner with a bit in a glass, and it didnt have a bit, some fruity and earthy undertones, and a semi-sweet aroma. I certainly will keep on hand.

It's good, nothing more than that. I did not find this to be exciting, but I did like it. For the price, it would make a good everyday whisky.

At under $52/.75L you can't go wrong with this flavour. The dude/-dette, who posted "apple cider" "review" below must have drunk vinegar. Or, s/he has no clue.

After playing the Pipes, we pass around the flasks. The Tomintoul wins every time. It is very smooth, has almost no bite and the most wonderful follow-up. It is worth every penny and will always be my drink of choice!

This is truly one of the worst scotches I have bought in years. Abominable, sour, surly and not even close to being a "gentle dram" unless you like sucking on rotten apples and spitting out the foetid seeds in your Glencairn glass.

Very smooth ! First place for sure!

in un mio viaggio a Londra ebbi modo di assaggiare e quindi acquistare questo whisky che reputo molto buono nel sapore, successivamente ho continuato ad acquistare tramite amici che si recavano a Londra , ora però vedo che c'è la possibilità di ordinarlo via internet e questo sarà per me un servizio che non tralascerò di utilizzare. grazie e complimenti

The Tomintoul 16 is great value for money - I don't think any other 16 year-old whiskies are available at this great price. Upon tasting it, I could see why they call it 'the gentle dram' - lots of subtle fruit flavours, but by no means uninteresting. A very pleasant, unassuming malt.
