Tomintoul Caroni 1998 22 Year Old Cask #338117 70cl
The Tomintoul is a whisky known for great Bourbon Cask maturation.
The distillery has, however experimented and here we have the result of one such trial - a wonderful Caroni Rum finished single cask release.
Only 237 bottles were drawn from the cask, at a natural strength of 52.2%.
Aromas of clove rock and strawberry jam with hints of red cherry and Muscovado sugar.
Brambles, beeswax and dark chocolate come through the palate and mingle with treacle toffees and a chilli prickle.
The finish brings the mature oak notes, with mocha and nougat leaving a lingering espresso coffee.
