Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Tomatin 1997 Review


23rd May 2016

Review of Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Tomatin 1997.

Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Tomatin 1997 ReviewGordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Tomatin 1997 was matured in Refill Bourbon Barrels and bottled on the 16th October 2014 at 46% ABV.

The Gordon & MacPhail ‘Connoisseurs Choice’ range was launched in the mid-1960s’. Until this time, many of the whiskies the range featured would not have been available as single malt. Today, Connoisseurs Choice retains this exclusive nature with a range of rare and sought after single malts from distilleries throughout Scotland including this Tomatin 1997 Highland single malt whisky.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose:  A deliciously enticing nose of creamy sweet vanilla, pineapple and candied pear.

Taste: A lovely barley sugar sweetness, tangy candied orange and lemon becoming a little zesty and a late touch of oak spice.

Finish: Lovely long finish with the candied fruit slowly fading to leave creamy vanilla.

Comment: A cracking example of just how enjoyable this distillery can be when matured in quality casks. Considering the age and quality of this whisky, for the price I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

SMW Score 91/100
