Insider knowledge: Tomintoul 1972 - Private Collection (Gordon & MacPhail) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Tomintoul 1972 - Private Collection (Gordon & MacPhail) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Hints of tropical fruit and dried banana chips. Butterscotch, hints of manuka honey and allspice. Mint.
Palate: Green tea, notes of toffee apples, quince cheese and marzipan. Dried grass, a touch of toasted oak.
