Tomatin Legacy Review
Category: Single Malt Scotch
With the Legacy, Tomatin has throw its proverbial hat into the ring of the non-age-statement whisky arena.
Here’s a little background on Tomatin …
For years, it has lurking in the shadows of the popular Scottish distilleries.
Unbeknownst to many casual whisky drinkers, it’s actually been quite a major player in the whisky world for quite some time.
Case in point:
The Tomatin 15 was a phenomenal whisky.
It even earned a nice little spotted perched above the Whisky Jerk’s home collection.
Now …. back to the Legacy
So what’s the Jerk’s take?
We’re talking about some pretty phenomenal stuff at a delicious price offering.
Whisky guru Jim Murray gave it a 94 in his acclaimed Whisky Bible.
At $30 – $35 a bottle, it’s a steal of a deal. So, if you can your grubby mitts upon a bottle, snatch it up before they come to their senses and jack up the price.
Tomatin Legacy Tasting Notes
Nose:It delivers a tangy wisp of lemon on the nose, vanilla bean, marshmallow, and some pine overtones coming over the top.
Palate: The whisky comes ablaze on the tongue. The malts are young albeit, but they’re clean and crisp and under the reigns.
Finish:As this whisky fades into the sunset the malts go on cruise control, leaving you with some delicate spices on the fade away.
