Tomatin 6 yo (2009), Chapter 7, 63,2 %

Review #429
From the series “A Whisky Anthology” comes this single cask from a Bourbon Hogshead, with the cask no 1849. Only 335 bottles were made. It is young and that really shows in the smell! But not in a bad way. Hints of new make, loads of green apples, vanilla and marzipan. Just so very fresh!

Very powerful in the taste, but the new make notes mixed with rich vanilla sweetness and apples makes it quite enjoyable! A very long finish, that is mostly just warm. In the end, when the alcohol is gone, the apples and vanilla stays behind.

This really shows that even young whisky with new make notes can be very good. It is very simple and not very complicated which suits this dram! And as a bonus you get a great idea about how Tomatin new make taste like! I will give this 82/100 (20/21/21/20).
