Tomintoul Peaty Tang Bottling Note

Released in late 2007, a peaty single malt from the Tomintoul distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Full and pungent. There are notes of heather roots and wood smoke. A dark peat with notes of copper and pine oils with a touch of gentle sweetness from the barley malt.

Palate: Quite rich and powerful. There are notes of toasted oak with notes of pepper and the smoke thereof. Notes of toasty cereals and supple peat. A wistful ash note builds.

Finish: Long and hot with pepper and a leafy green note.

Reviews for Tomintoul with a Peaty Tang
Surprisingly compelling and more-ish.
For perspective, I am usually a smoke head type of whiskey drinker so at first taste I thought this was going to be too 1 dimensional and I am sure there are people who will find this either too much (smoke) or not enough (other, punchy flavours). However once I accepted the duality, I found I couldn’t get enough! The nose is smoke and earth but for me also also marzipan and Turkish delight. I love it. It’s a whiskey you can really hold in your mouth, exactly as described in the tasting notes but also for me a little nutty and a hint of iodine. A dash of water brings out the sweet flavours. For perspective, I don’t like creamy but this was just enough caramel and custard, without getting anywhere near sickly. Right at the end, a suggestion of unripe conference pear and mineral water leading back to the peat and smoke. Five stars for the price range. A thoroughly enjoyable and far too easy to drink whiskey.

Unbelievable surprise
Many thanks folks, it arrived today. I was astounded to discover the name of the Head Distiller at Tomintoul as I bought this for a friend's birthday.......He's called Robert Fleming as well! Sheer coincidence!

Just okay
I had high hopes for this but was unfortunately dissapointed. I like peated whisky but for me there wasn't a lot going on here. Sure the peat was there and for some reason I had a bitter lemon. Apart from that I didn't find a lot. Having said all this, it's drinkable and not badly priced.

Excellent for the price
This seems to take the already beautiful signature tomintoul taste and smoothness, adds a peaty smoke hit without losing the existing taste or character. Easily one of the best peated whiskies pound for pound

I don't know the standard Tomintoul flavour but I found this a little dry and unsubtle for my taste. Interesting but not my favourite by a long way.

Yes and no
If you like Tomintoul and peat, then go for it ! I don't like Tomintoul signature flavour so it was not my favorite. That being said, I think they did a great job creating a peated malt with balance. Also at a decent price !

A WONDERFUL Retirement Gift!
My cousin/brother by another Mother gave me a bottle of this commemorating my retirement. He's known I've LOVED Scot's whisky for years and this was/is the "icing on the cake." I HIGHLY recommend this IF, and only if, you're looking for something to broaden your Scot's whisky boundaries. It's surely LOVELY. And, ONLY to be enjoyed S-L-O-W-L-Y. VERY enjoyably the thimble full! It's a treat to behold for those with discriminating Scot's whisky tastes. Enjoy!

Great entry level peated whisky!
Bought this whisky as a cheap peaty dram, only 18,50 euro's. This is a great whisky in it's price range. A decent whisky overall. Nice peaty flavor, little peppery, some hints of dark chocolate, subtle sweet finish. Richer than I expected. Gets even better with a little bit of water. Very nice! Great for someone who wants to try peated whiskies for the first time!

Great special edition from a fine distilery.
Great stuff and a rich quaff from Tomnitoul. Just enough of heady, rich peat and a great crossover taste to the smoky, peaty jewels that form the class of Islay sips.

Liquid ash
Not my style at all, way too smoky. You either love this or hate it and my bottle is basically decoration
