700ML / 50% ABV.
Bottled to mark the 50th anniversary of Tomintoul Distillery, 5 decades is composed of casks chosen from each decade by Master Distiller, Robert Fleming. Cask from 1965, 1975, 1985, 1995 and 2005 were combined to produce 5,230 individually numbered bottles.
Colour: Barley gold
Nose: A subtle mix of tropical fruit and nuts, including papaya, guava and hazelnut. Gentle, peppery spice and a feint tobacco note reminiscent of a humidor.
Palate: Rich and creamy, with a sweet, malty backbone. Exotic fruits persist, and the mellowed oak of some of the more mature whiskies emerge.
Finish: Sweet and spicy, with ginger, nutmeg and black pepper.
