Tomatin Legacy

Tomatin Legacy

Official bottling
Single malt - Speyside
43% ABV

Nose: Raisins, sour cream, orange peel, leather, hints of wet leaves, hints of tobacco leaf. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens slightly, oily, astringent. 
Tasting: Sour. Sour cream, raisins, orange peel, walnuts, lemon zest, hints of sea salt. 
Finish: Medium. Orange peel, green apples, sour cream, lemon zest. 


Aged in virgin oak and bourbon barrels (!). Is this whisky or bourbon? Who cares? It's tart and grapey, but not overly sweet. There's a milky, creamy note, which would be great if there were say a chocolatey bite, but instead it's accompanied by orange peel and other citrus. Decent dram, not a particularly great one.


Not bad.
