70cl, 45.5% abv
Tomintoul 1968 Single Malt Whisky was bottled in 2012 and is part of Gordon & MacPhail's "Rare Old" series. It was matured in refill Sherry Hogsheads. Many of the single malt whiskies in Gordon & MacPhail's "Rare Old" series will never be seen again. They are whiskies from another era - some are from distilleries no longer in operation, others from distilleries that no longer exist.
Colour: Dark gold.
Nose: Subtle Sherry influences with hints of marzipan and milk chocolate. A touch of beeswax polish develops with fresh fruit aromas; ripe banana, peach and lemon.
Palate: Chilli spice initially with honey, orange zest and gooseberry flavours. These combine with a lingering menthol and peppermint edge.
Finish: Long, sweet and creamy.
