Tomintoul 10 year old

This single malt is named after the village of Tomintoul (which also has the excellent Whisky Castle shop) and marketed as the "gentle dram".  The nose is malty, even yeasty, a bit like a bakery.  There are also some grain and alcohol notes.  The taste is warm at first and a little rough with some saw dust and caramel.  With water everything calms down, less nose and less heat, but more cereal notes.  The finish has oak, pepper, is a little bitter, dry and little abrupt.  The Gentle Dram.... maybe.  The Slightly Dull Dram maybe a little harsh (but accurate).
