Tomintoul Bourbon Barrel 2007 12 Year Old Cask #11574 70cl
The Tomintoul is a whisky known for great Bourbon Cask maturation, and very rarely selects a cask to showcase its own unique flavours. Luckily, now and then one reaches peak maturation that is simply outstanding.
Here is one such cask. Aged for 12 full years in a Bourbon Barrel and yielding only 235 bottles, at natural cask strength of 65.7%.
A nose of cigar box and freshly sawn oak. Loaded with citrus, heather-honey and vanilla.
A real mature whisky. Dry initially but with time opens up with a balance of cream and and oaky spice.
A lingering spice in perfect balance with creamy sweetness elevates the finish.
