Scotch Single Malt - Speyside - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
Interesting fact… Tomintoul 12 Year Old Portwood Finish whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Tomintoul 12 Year Old Portwood Finish whiskey, instead of 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.
