Antiquary 21 Year
Tomatin // Scotland
Released by Tomatin Scotch, which also contributes to a good percentage of the whisky used, this is a blend of single malts from Speyside, Highland, Lowland and Islay. The characteristic flavors of the whiskies from each region are thought to impart different layers of flavor. Each whisky in the blend is at least 21 years old. Impressive packaging with a sueded label and faceted glass.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Very sweet, almost to the point of cloying. Said to have Islay scotch in the mix, but couldn't detect it (maybe its a Bunnahabhain?). Brown sugar, chocolate malt balls (actually, there's a certain je ne sais Yoo-hoo), red delicious apple, pear, caramel, honeycomb cereal. Totally flat finish with no heat, little smoke, definitely a lot of mirrors."
