Appositive or not?

1

Is Tom a restrictive appositive in the sentence below? I know it would be a nonrestrictive appositive if it were set off by commas, but I'm not so sure about this sentence.

 

"Mary's other brother Tom is a barber." (As opposed to her first brother Tom; she has two brothers named Tom.)
