Gordon & MacPhail (distilled at Tomintoul) cask 644 1967 vintage 40 year old, 49.4%

Price: $260 Issue: Spring 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

A deep, mature Tomintoul that manages to retain the elegance and drinkability found in younger Tomintoul whiskies. Roasted nuts, lush fruit, suggestions of cherry brandy and orange marmalade layered with rich fudge, toffee, and maple syrup. Soothing finish. Tomintoul can be a simple whisky at a younger age, but this one has matured into a beautifully complex dram. (Bottled for Park Avenue Liquors.)
