Bourbon Barrel 638. 273 bottles. Grows on you.
I was pointed at WhiskyBroker by Tom of Tom’s Whisky Reviews, who told me that my much loved Tomatin Burns Malt from Whisky Barrel started life as a Whisky Broker bottling. Thought I’d give a couple of bottles a whirl to see what they’re like.
Nose – Faint, some fruit, a savoury edge (I initially feel its burnt onions but later this wears off). A bit polite but hints at tropical fruit. Faint wax and a little mango, and some drying peat.
Body – Refreshing, fruity, lovely mouth feel. Very pleasant, actually quite delicious, but a little polite. Some fresh apple and a peat backing.
Finish – Surprisingly long, never unbalanced.
