The Tomatin Five Virtues series is a quintet of whiskies built around five elements that contribute to whisky production - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. This edition is their Water expression, which was drawn from a combination of sherry butts and second-fill ex-bourbon barrels.
Nose: Hot chocolate, toffee apples and honey on toast.
Palate: Walnut and almond appears first before waves of malt loaf and raisin sweetness develop.
Finish: A hint of oily malt and toasted cinnamon.
