Long known as 'the gentle dram' Tomintoul 16yo is soft and nutty, with a pleasant richness. A Gold Medal winner at the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC), this is a cracking dram for the money.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by CLASS Magazine

    Clear, mid golden yellow with bright gold highlights.

    Light and fragrant green apple skin and freshly cut pear flesh with linseed balsawood and barley water.

    Stewed cider apple, pear skin, sweet barley, light and thin vanilla custard, delicate spice and faint candied mandarin peel.

    Malty succulent crisp pear with light cinnamon spice and cream-of-soda vanilla. Faint whips of smoke. Light, fruity, fresh and rewarding.

    My favourite whisky, along with the 21yr and Dalwhinnie. Gorgeous.

    A lovely whisky for the money. Smooth, full of soft fruit and spice flavours. I only wish they would bottle it at 43% or 46% for that added flavour. Brilliant!

    I gave this as a birthday present to my stepdad last year and I don''t think I''ve ever had a gift so completely enjoyed by someone before. He has a hard time drinking anything else now. His face completely lights up just talking about how much he loves this Scotch.

    I have bought a few of these now, for personal consumption and for gifts, and always get glowing feedback from the recipients. To my mind and palette, got to be one of the best whiskeys in this price range. Exceptional

    Excellent whisky, very easy drinking. Surprised just how sweet it was. Will certainly be buying again. The whisky bible rates this higher than the 21yr old, which is why I chose it. You can't go far with this, smooth, sweet and very drinkable.

    I have to concur with the others, this is one superior whiskey. No burn, just bliss gliding down your throat. I am truly envious of those who can get a steady supply of Tomintoul, I have to scour the earth for it...but it's worth it!

    Excellent. Simply excellent for the price.

    I first came across this marvelous malt in 2005 and have bought at least one bottle every time I visit a whisky shop. I love a nice single malt and for me this is probably one of the best.I would recomend this to anyone.

    Possibly the best 16 YO Speyside Single Malt for the money.

    I bought this for a friend's Birthday and he kindly shared a glass with me. WOW! This is so smooth, and nice, and smooth, (did I say smooth?) that I now have just got to buy at least one for myself! Some whiskys catch at or burn in your throat. but not this one, which just slips down nice and gentle...

    Me too, Ive just had my first ever glass of Tomintoul (16yr old) after being a bit of a smokey peat man and have got to say i love it. The gentle dram is very apt description of this gentle gem.

    It's very simple: buy this. I admit that I haven't tasted all of the sixteen-y-o Speysiders but I doubt you will find one of this quality for this price. I love it.
