We can safely call this bottling of Mackillop's Choice an oldie, because it was distilled in 1990 and bottled for almost ten years. It's a Tormore, a house that hasn't appeared on my radar that often. Oh, yummy! A nose full of vanilla custard and eggnog (you know, the thick liquid liqueur). Some nuts and chestnuts, wood glue (which reminds me of grain) and yellow potpourri. That's great! On the palate, it can't quite live up to the promise of the nose. A little too much oak to my liking, which makes it a bit bitter and dry. Quite a few wood herbs that suppress the sweet. That sweetness translates to vanilla, corn and honey. Becomes relatively spicy on pepper and nutmeg. The finish is long, starts sweet but then becomes a bit bitter and dry. Quite a bit of oak on the deathbed. It had started out well, but unfortunately went downhill relatively quickly. If I had tasted this blind, I would have sworn that there was a single grain in my glass. Thank you, Manny.
