The Tomatin Legacy – which is a NAS release – refers to the important historical contribution that the distillery did for the town of the same name. It was the founding of the distillery that put the town on the map. Dozens of families came to live around the distillery, since it became their employer. The nose is very sweet on vanilla and coconut with fresh touches of citrus. A truckload of juicy honey adds to that sweetness. It also offers up a lovely dose of caramel. It is not complex (at all), but very summery and pleasant. Wonderfully oily. It rolls silky soft across the tastebuds. There is a little spiciness present as if from pepper and some liquorice. The fruit of the nose returns, although the emphasis is now on citrus. Some fresh green apples surface. The finish is very short and shows a bitterness at the death. A very quaffable Tomatin with no frills. Typical drinking dram that will put a smile on your face if you are sipping it on a summery terrace (like me, writing these notes in the French Provence by the poolside in 30°C weather). Oh, feel free to add a cube of ice.
