Tomintoul 16yo 40% 70cl
Is this the best value Scotch Single Malt on the market? There's a good shout for it to be so, considering what other 15+ year old whiskies are asking for these days.
A relatively young distillery in the grand scheme of things, Tomintoul was founded in 1964 mainly as a workhorse distillery to produce malt whisky for blended brands. Indeed, such was it's usefulness it beame part of the Whyte & Mackay family in 1989, before being sold to Angus Dundee Distillers in 2000, who also own Glencadam.
Tomintoul markets itself as 'The Gentle Dram', and this is especially apt when trying the 16yo, which has a lovely Sherry influence with hints of soft oak in the background. It's incredibly easy to drink - for some, maybe too easy and those people would argue it lacks some kind of complexity. Well, they're being far too picky, as there is still bags of fruity flavour going on here. There's not much better for this price point, that's for certain!
