Another offering in Tomatin’s interesting Five Virtues series, which pays homage to the five different elements used in whisky production: Wood, Earth, Metal, Fire and Water.
The Metal expression has been designed to showcase the traditional Tomatin style – a reflection of their spirit and the unique stills used to create it. As such it has been aged in former Bourbon barrels, to ensure that the spirit is the star of the show.
The result is a soft and nutty whisky, with notes of freshly baked cake, juicy citrus, apricot, almonds, vanilla, and cream.
Bottled at 46% ABV and without chill filtration and colouration, Metal is another impressive addition to the Tomatin Five Virtues range.
