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.

    Very different, in a good way. Charismatic. Light tang, not a heavy tang of peat, thankfully, keeping this mellow. I might be out on a limb, or there might be variation, but I got two improbable but persistent flavour hints: lavender.. and laugh if you will... some damp but not quite fusty yet... old leather-bound books. Even the smell had a touch of the latter - not a usual whisky aroma by any means. Producer reek and smoke notes and floral mention mean I don't feel I've entirely lost the plot. Haven't tasted anything like it. Other more usual Speyside complexities in there, sweetening it off and always came back to it with relish when the mood struck me and it never disappointed my desire for a left-field moment. Just gets the 5th star, but a steal..

    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

  • Grant Melville, Falkirk 21 March 2013

    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.

  • Kenneth Blankenship, Richmond, Virginia 15 July 2012

    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.
