Scotch Single Malt - Speyside - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
What's in a name? Tomintoul 12 Year Old Portwood Finish whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Tomintoul 12 Year Old Portwood Finish whiskey, rather than 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.
