Tasting Notes by WhiskyFun (Serge Valentin)

Just like very old Bunnahabhains, old Tomintouls seem to remain easily available. Well, a few casks, at least.

Colour: gold.

Nose: quite beautiful at first nosing, with a peculiar combination of sour fruits and putty-like notes. Orgeat and tangerine liqueur? Orange-filled marzipan? Also very funny touches of cow stable in the background, hints of horse sweat… Mind you, that’s an asset in this context. In short, a beautiful nose!

Mouth: it’s amazing how fresh and lively, almost vibrant this has remained. Many jelly beans/bears/babies/crocodiles plus fresh passion fruits and oranges plus the expected spiciness from age, mostly toward cinnamon. It’s globally light, pleasantly so, and there’s no lack of body.

Finish: medium long, fresh, fruity, with always quite some cinnamon, esp. in the aftertaste.

Comments: it must be Haribo that have distilled this. Seriously, it’s lovely and fresh very old whisky, well in the style of the best old uncomplicated Tomintouls.
