Tomatin Legacy, 43 %

Review #185
A NAS whisky from Tomatin matured in a combination of bourbon barrels and virgin oak casks. The smell is light fruity. Hints of apples and pears in the background, but the vanilla and marzipan is more in focus. The sweetness is definitely from the fruit though.

The taste is very light and fruity smoothness comes rushing in. Fresh fruits picked directly from the tree and dipped in honey. The finish bears more signs of the virgin oak influence. The fresh fruits get switched out with light oak and vanilla.

It is a bit simple, but if you give it some time in the glass it opens up a bit and becomes a more complete whisky. A little water opens up for some extra light fruitiness. I will give this 83/100 (21/20/21/21).
