Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 472: Tomintoul 16 Year Old
Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries a standard Speysider. Tomintoul is a young (°1964) and lesser-known distillery that is quietly working to put itself on the map. Although they still supply the vast majority of their production for the blends of Whyte & Mackay, they also bottle single malt. In May 2021, Mark participated in an online masterclass, organized by importer Cinoco, and this was in the line-up. It charmed without being really great. But for 50 EUR you do have an honest entry-level malt, made of mainly first fill bourbon-aged and only a little sherry-aged Tomintoul.
