Tomatin Legacy is an experiment in wood that yields a lighter and more vanilla-forward single-malt Whiskey.  

There is not even a freeway off-ramp for the little town of Tomatin. But that’s OK, keeps the city-folk out. The entire population is less than 200, and since their founding in 1897, Tomatin Distillery has had to build special housing on site for employees who come from the surrounding countryside to work seasonally at the plant. But back in the 1970s, this little hamlet produced more Whisky than anyplace else in Scotland. Well, that’s no longer true, but their Highland single-malt is still a core component of many of the finest blends, including two of their own: Antiquary and Talisman. 
 
Today, Tomatin is owned by mega-corp Takara Shuzo from Japan, where demand for their products is huge. But they stab off a select amount of their production for their own signature single-malt whisky line across a range of ages and special editions.
 
Tomatin Legacy is an experiment in wood. They have taken their signature single-malt Whisky and aged some of it in ex-Borboun barrels and the rest in virgin oak. This makes Tomatin Legacy lighter and more vanilla than the other products in their range. And as an NAS (non-age-statement) Whisky it is an internal blend… meaning a mixture of vintages of their single-malt line. 
 
Why call it “Legacy?” Well, this edition is a tribute to the heritage of their namesake town and their influence on it. And that has been a mighty influence indeed. Tomatin is just south of Inverness and it consists of a few Scottish cattle drovers, farms, a schoolhouse, and the distillery. The plant is ingrained in the history and culture of the people who live there. So they created a new addition to their core lineup to respect that.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Peter,
Good nose! Fresh sharp taste all the way down. I like the flavors. Good whisky for a good price

Jasson,
An absolute gem for the price. In the states it goes for around $22. Note: in the states it's called "Dualchas" - something to do with the licensing on the word 'Legacy'. This low-cost single-malt is a 43% substitute for many $50 bottles. Try it if you haven't yet. For the price, it simply cannot be beat. Delicious.
