What an ideal gift this makes. A half bottle of fortified is one of life’s little pleasures. Topaque might be an unusual name for a fortified but it’s actually the given name for Tokay. This one from Rutherglen comes from one of the oldest fortified makers in the region, Campbells who have been crafting these golden elixirs for well over a century. Amazing colour with a decadent nose of toffee and honey and hints of tea, before a rich and unctuous palate, punctuated by a spirity lift and a long finish.
Deep, brilliant old gold. Lifted toffee, honey and cold tea characters combine to produce the unique character of Rutherglen Topaque. Toffee and tealeaf characters predominate on the front of the palate with a cleansing hint of spirit and old oak on the finish.
