A wonderfully fruity release from Tomatin. This 32-year-old expression spent its maturation period in a single refill American oak hogshead before being bottled for Gordon & MacPhail's Connoisseurs Choice series at 54.5% abv. A masterful Highland dram.
There are aromas of cracked black pepper, dried mango, and lemon zest before moving into a palate that is full of baked apples, grapefruit peel, and Seville oranges. The fruity notes continue into the smooth finish, complemented by subtle hints of toasted oak.
