Tomintoul 25 year old, 43%
Price: $415 ● Issue: Spring 2017 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
This is the oldest core expression of Tomintoul's Gentle Dram, now available in the U.S. It is a classic of this style of Speyside single malt. Peaches, malt, honey, vanilla, and developing floral notes on the nose. Full-bodied, with ripe apples, cocoa, milky coffee, honey, vanilla, and soft spices. Spicy and drying, with plain chocolate in the relatively lengthy, mellow finish.
