'Tomintoul '15' - With a Peaty Tang'⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Bottled at 40%⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Cask Type: American oak ex-bourbon casks.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ This Speyside single peated malt scotch whisky is aged for 15 years in hand-picked American oak ex-bourbon casks. Tomintoul blends both peated and unpeated spirit to give the whisky it's 'Peaty Tang' name.⁣ ⁣⁣ Nose. Floral with Vanilla, Honey and Peat.⁣⁣ Palate. Sweet Malt, Earthy Peat and Fruit.⁣⁣ Finish. Spices, Lemon, Oak and Toffee.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ This one started with freshly picked flowers, a soothing fragrance that provided a floral aroma. Next, creamy vanilla, which gave a silky soft and very inviting smell to the whisky. Following this, you get very sweet and luscious honey.⁣⁣⁣ Also included on the nose was a glimmer of peat; a light and musty smell that added significant interest moving forward.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ On the palate, flavourings of sweet malt established base notes. Immediately next, more of the peat influence is present, giving notes of earthy peat this time, it's a lot more prominent on the palate than the nose though. Additionally, a juicy green apple note comes through and provided a memorable fruity flavour.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ The finish is medium and spicy with ginger and clove being the main flavours generating a strong winter spiciness. Now, you receive a lemon lift, which is slightly tart, but a welcomed and pleasing accessory to the whisky. Next, a wood-like flavour such as oak is present. The tasting finished with a very tasty toffee note that added balance. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ "A unique whisky with a lot to offer. For a nice easy drinking and delicious Speyside whisky with a twist, you must check this one out!"⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Have you tried this one yet? Let me know in the comments below.

A dry smoky presence steadily builds.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ABV and Price: 46% ABV;  750ml $95;  70cl £75.00; 8,328 bottles produced globally, including the UK.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ PC @compassboxwhiskyco 📸⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ What do you think of this new release?

TPWC - 'Scotch & Tattoos'⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Bottled at: 53.4% ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Cask Type:⁣ Bourbon hogshead.⁣ Age: 13 Years Old.⁣ Distillery: Caol Ila⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ My tasting notes 📝⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Nose. Fruit, Vanilla, Peat and Spice.⁣⁣⁣⁣ Palate. Liquorice, Rosemary and Nuts.⁣ Finish. Medicinal with Green Apple, Ash and Black Pepper.⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Plenty of comforting fruit such as apple and pear builds sufficient interest and structure. Now, an ambrosial vanilla note makes a big announcement. Then a distinct Islay peat scent provides notes of earth and mild smoke. Ultimately, improving the aroma, even more, cinnamon. The cinnamon instils a top layer of spiciness.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ There's a variety of flavours on the palate. A big hit of liquorice gives a bitter yet salty flavour. Following that a sharp and influential rosemary note adds ample herb like flavourings. Then Brazil nuts leave a lasting impression, by supplying a rich and mild nut flavour. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ The medium-bodied finish gives medicinal tastes and feels first, then there's a surge of fruit. Fresh green apple to be exact. Additionally, a burnt wood and ash like flavour is a very welcomed addition that expands and balances the palate. There's more spiciness now, cracked black pepper is what completed this one. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ My opinion 🗣🥃⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ "A great whisky, which submits well known Islay character throughout. It's big and bold flavours keep you coming back for more. One not to be missed!"⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ What are your thoughts on this one from @torstenpaulwhisky and @thewhiskyowl ?
