Scotch Single Malt - Speyside - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
Insider knowledge: Tomintoul 12 Year Old Portwood Finish whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Tomintoul 12 Year Old Portwood Finish whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Fruity and floral with notes of sweet cream soda, strawberry jam, granary toast and juicy barley.
Palate: Fruity and malty with creamy notes, jam, manuka honey and grenadine.
Finish: Good length with light fruit, perfumy notes and cereals.
Absolutely beautiful dram, I am quite new at drinking whisky, I used to drink Glenmorangie a lot but after doing distillery tours in Scotland tasting many different whisky this came out as my favorite of all so far.
Another gentle dram from Tomintoul with lots of fruity taste.
