Tomintoul 16 yo, 40 %

Review #313
Matured in Bourbon casks, crafted by Robert Fleming. The smell has all the classic Bourbon cask influence. Vanilla, honey and due to the age, some light toasted oak and spices. With that said, not much more is going on here.

The taste is a bit watery, but some nuts (mostly almonds), fresh plums and light oak joins the party. The finish gets a bit more sugary, like fudge, but besides that, not much changes. The taste and finish reminds me very much of cake! If that makes any sense…

Too bad they watered this all the way down to 40 %, as I think this actually had some potential at a higher strength. The palate and finish simply just drown in all the water… I will give this 81/100 (21/20/20/20).
