Tomintoul Peaty Tang
70cl / 40%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
We assume that this new no-age-statement peated Tomintoul must be similar to the Old Ballantruan but at a reduced strength. Either way, at this price it must be worth a punt for peatheads.

This is a malty Speyside dram with just a light hint of peat to add complexity. Still a rounded Speyside malt, nothing like an Islay. Very nice indeed.

As a Speyside fan I don't do much peat - but this has just the right amount for me when I fancy something a bit different

Splendid. A fabulous Speyside that's put its wellies on and gone for a good old stamp around in the peat. It's so young and lively, so fresh and sweet, with those delicate peaty zephyrs wafting through it. "Tang" really sums it up: just a little something extra that makes it so special.
- Grant Melville, Falkirk, 21st Mar '13
Surprised!! Surprised!! Surprised!! A well-balanced dram with just the right amount of peatiness by not trying to imitate an Islay. Still retains its Speyside character. Complexity present for such an obviously young whisky. Pear Drops with a sweet milk chocolate undertones. Pleasant finish that softly walks away.

Finally, reliable producer's tasting notes. This proved a lot more complex than I had anticipated. Initially the peat smoke on the nose bears a resemblance to Islay-style smoke, particularly that of the younger Bowmores, but it quickly becomes more Speyside-ish. That "peaty tang" rather acts like a skin, because the delicate malty heart of Tomintoul is still there, intact, underneath. Very tasty indeed.
