Came across this in a whisky advent calendar last Xmas and immediately decided to buy some. A superb Speyside malt, my favourite this year. Plenty of honey and malt and a just a hint of island character. Absolutely no vices. Wonderful!

A lovely sweet dram. One which definitely benefits from a very little water. Not the same without it. I will be buying again.

Lovely stuff, unusually pale in colour but pungent and smooth with a cracking fresh malty flavour no doubt owing to the lack of filtering. I would recommend this to anyone.

My all time favourite, and the name of my cat, who's only 9 years old!

Distilling water with a pinch of salt? Is that how they make Old Pulteney?

JL - delighted that you enjoy this cracking dram so much. With regards to the water, well... Tomintoul is one of the highest villages in the Highlands, so the water is undoubtedly pure, but we tend to take all claims about the water used in the distilling process with a big pinch of salt :)

Light floral nose, possibly a touch of apples too. A delicate almost grassy palate to compliment the malt and honey then a very smooth but not over long finish.Much better than the 16 year old version, possibly due to NCF?I read somewhere that the very hard water that is the source for Tomintoul Distillery makes for the very crisp, fresh whisky that this version typifies.What say you TWE admin?Anyway, a real star at reasonable price - enjoy!JL - Glasgow
