Tomatin 1988 / 30 Year Old / Connoisseurs Choice Highland Whisky
70cl / 59.2% / Gordon & MacPhail – This 30-year-old Tomatin was distilled in 1988 and bottled in 2018 for Gordon & MacPhail’s Connoisseur’s Choice series. Fully matured in a refill American oak Hogshead, this Highland single malt has aromas of key-lime-pie and green apples, before giving way to sweet, sugary-pastry aromas. The palate opens with sweet notes, building quickly to peppers and earthy undertones. Freshly-ground coffee and rich dark chocolate follow, but are quickly overtaken by bold grapefruit notes.
