Tomintoul 12 years old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish

The gentle dram […]

The Glenlivet-Tomintoul Distillery is located in the hearty in whisky region of Speyside in the Ballindalloch. It was founded in 1964, primarily for the purposes of the rapidly growing market of blended whisky. Over time, single malts entered in the offer. Today I have in the glass the Tomintoul 12 years old in limited, as the producer indicates, version of Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish, 40% ABV. Previously, we had here Tomintoul - the gentle dram with a peaty tang, that is a peated NAS from this distillery. Lets see how is the classic version doing, which spent the last period of maturation in Oloroso Sherry casks. [caption id=attachment_7572 align=alignnone width=1920] Tomintoul 12 years old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish[/caption] N: still in the bottle I feel the obvious impact of sherry, in the glass it is much more quiet, more timid and with a pinch of pepper, in the background rather sluggishly fruits appear: pineapple, melon, a touch of grapefruit, orange peel, then I have something fresh, like a delicate traces of mint, maybe also chamomile, generally you have to give it a moment to breathe in order to distinguish individual accents; S: begins with oak, its slightly gingery and dry, only after that you can sense the emerging fruity character, as I have grapefruit, peach and orange peel, then a little bit of coconut and toffee, in the end ginger, bitterness and a large dose of dryness come back again; F: medium long, dry with ginger and remnants of bitterness. Score: 79 Tomintoul 12 years old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish is characterized by a nice fruity, though shy smell, you have to give him some time. The taste is less pleasant, with too much of oak, bitterness and ginger.

    Independent Macallan

    Macallan previously appeared on the blog in the official version of Fine Oak, after 18 years of maturing. Today I decided to reach for Macallan 21 years old from the independent bottler Douglas Laing, Old & Rare series, Platinum Selection. We have here a single cask - refill hogshead, 245 bottles (mines no 6), cask strength 52% ABV, natural colour. Distillation took place in March 1989, bottling in September 2010. The presentation is just perfect. [caption id=attachment_7160...

    US Exclusive

    During the holidays in Florida, by the way of buying champagne on New Years Eve 2016, I had, of course, revise a shelf with single malts. In fact, there were only standards and have already had to reach for Bourbon as the corner of my eye noticed Glenfiddich 14 years old Bourbon Barrel Reserve US Exclusive, 43% ABV. According to the label this version is offered exclusively in the US. Matured in bourbon casks for 14 years and then finished in the fresh American oak. The concept here is...

    Adult Glenfiddich.

    It stands itself on my shelf, such a small bottle with the inscription Glenfiddich 18 years old, 40% ABV. I dont even remember from where I got it. It seems that somewhere in Asia, it was added to a large bottle of Glenfiddich. It makes no sense that it would stand so alone longer and get dusted. Definitely it must feel neglected. I have to take care of it. In the summer I described a 12 years old version, there I put a lot of links to other posts about this distillery and its spirits. I...

    Mysterious malt

    A few days ago I got a sample of The Glenlivet Cipher. The assumption is a mysterious malt, of which the consumer has little to know and should independently explore the whisky, without any suggestions from the manufacturer. You need to find your own cipher. [caption id=attachment_6722 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Cipher[/caption] We know its The Glenlivet and bottled with the power of 48% ABV. We do not know the rest, eg. age (NAS - no age statement), but today...

    Kolejny Benromach

    After the previous post about the Benromach 10 years old 100 Proof I decided to go with the flow and try the Benromach Wood Finish Hermitage. Lets get right to the details, and use as an introduction the previous post. This single malt was distilled in 2007 and bottled in 2016 with a power of 45% ABV. The basic time whisky matured in first fill Bourbon casks, followed by 31 months in barrels of wine from Hermitage Appellation. Quite a long finish in wine barrels. [caption...

    Small Speyside Distillery

    During the last Whisky Festival in Jastrzębia Góra Mr. John regaled me with some delicious single malts. On the way back I got also a sample of Benromach 10 years old 100 Proof, 57% ABV, which Im going just to taste. This is the debut of Benromach on the blog (not counting the Masterclass at the Whisky Live Paris 2013), so at the outset, I must specify that the distillery is located in Speyside and is one of the smallest. It was founded in 1898 near Forres. As with the case of many...

    Kolejny NAS

    Recently while shopping in a commercial network I encountered a single malt below 25 Euro. Encouraged by the price I decided to buy it. Therefore, I present The Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade, 40% ABV. Reportedly this whisky was matured in American and European oak. It is NAS (no age statement). Briefly about the brand of The Singleton, because it is not a distillery, I wrote on the occasion of The Singleton of Glendullan 12 years old destined for the American market. [caption...

    Next Speysider

    Long in my opinion the Glenlivet is a counterweight to the Glenfiddich, I have already mentioned that on the occasion of the description of the Glenlivet 18 years old, which I enjoyed. It should not be a surprise as both distilleries are very well known. I also had the opportunity to compare Glenlivet Founders Reserve to leaving, at least from some markets, Glenlivet 12 years old. Today, it is a time for a 15 years old version, 40% ABV. [caption id=attachment_6298 align=alignnone...
