Great whisky. Will be getting more!!
I was first introduced to this Whisky, as more a "ladies whisky". I feel the description suits it well especially if you are not accustom to whisky. I cannot drink heavy whiskey as it is often too "peaty" for me. This is lovely on the winters evening after a cold brisk walk.
this is middle of the road in my view, its good quality but does have anything that makes me buy again, not very interesting at all to be honest.
Tomintoul-10 reminds me of an unsigned indie band, compared to say some commercial pop of the other speysides. It's not as finessed, not as distinctly fruity or sweet and the flavours run together a bit, but it's energetic and spicy. Further more, it improves the more you drink it rather.
When malts were still an interest instead of an obsession, I had this when I was on holiday in the Braemar area. To this day, even after old Highland Parks, eccentric Dalmores and rare Auchentoshans, I have not had a dram as uniquely, unassumingly pleasurable as this was when mixed with water straight from the tap.
