Tomintoul 11 Year Old Tasting Notes

Selim's tasting notes

Nose: Hazelnut cake, soft mustard, gunpowder, oranges, copper coins, earth.

Palate: Pecans, walnuts, glazed chestnuts, gunpowder, bits of tobacco, sweet BBQ sauce.

Finish: Oily but sharp with sweet spices and tobacco.

Ed's review

Colour: Natural, light amber, or pale burnished gold. Coats my glass, with beads that form slowly.

Nose: Stewed apples in a butterscotch and vanilla sauce with grated orange peel on top. Dry roasted and salted nuts. Black peppercorns. Floral, with fragrant hay in the summer.

Palate: Medium to full mouthfeel. Mixed dry roasted nuts. A gentle sweetness and a fresher green note bring greengages to my mind - with vanilla cream. A little spice, but tempered with aromatic sweetness (I can see where Selim gets BBQ sauce from).

Finish: Long finish with gingernut biscuits, vanilla and a touch of warming spice. 

Overall: Another delicious dram from Selim - great quality spirit, aged in a great cask.

About this Chapter 7 Whisky

Tomintoul takes its name from the highest village nearby the distillery. Built in the 1960s, it started to gain recognition not long ago with Angus Dundee Distillers releases. Chapter 7 Whisky were very pleased to find this single Amontillado cask finished Tomintoul. Amontillado is a variety of sherry characterised by being darker than fino but lighter than oloroso. The nature Amontillado cask whiskies are rather unusual because the Amontillado casks themselves can be hard to come by. A properly seasoned Amontillado cask takes around 10 years to achieve.
