Tomatin Five Virtues Metal is one of the five-part series exploring the five elements involved in whisky distillation. The Metal expression has been matured solely in first-fill bourbon casks and has a vanilla rich flavour profile and a light golden colour like white wine. The nose opens with notes of sourdough bread, followed by aromas of hazelnut cream and a little hint of peach. The palate is creamy with notes of molten butter, fresh vanilla and ginger and on the tail there is some oaky spice and fizzling Refresher sweets. A very interesting dram.
