ABV: 46%
Tasting note: Bright straw gold. Softly spoken yet quite dense with vanilla malt and short bread on the nose evolving to barley sugar and cut grass. Textured, tongue coating, almost oily; wonderfully clean, peppery, biscuity malt; honey drizzled orchard fruitiness closing the finish. Really delicious. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... One of Speyside’s youngest distilleries, Tomintoul has been a relatively shy performer until recently, when a raft of new releases (some peated) have appeared. This non-chill filtered example is, for me, the best of the bunch. Pale in hue, it has a light, clean floral aroma — think daffodils — with plenty of white fruits and very subtle oak. The palate has pear juice, light vanilla, and a long sweet finish. 84 points
