40% | 70cl | Speyside
Launched in 2019, Tamnavulin's Sherry Cask expression was made by first maturing the new make in American oak barrels before it was finished in three different sherry casks.
Built in 1966, Tamnavulin is one of the lesser-known Speyside distilleries whose output mostly went into blended Scotch whisky. That is, until its current owners Whyte & Mackay, decided to release it as a single malt starting with the Double Cask in 2016.
COLOUR: Amber gold.
NOSE: A bouquet marked by freshly baked tarte tatin and vanilla pod, soon giving way to another level of charm as nuances of banana, caramelised orange and fresh ginger completes this tapestry of temptation.
PALATE: Warm and inviting. The palate detects an avalanche of exotic flavours, glazed nectarines and frangipane, shortly enlightened by hints of sticky toffee pudding, Demerara sugar and Seville oranges.
FINISH: Complex and rich. Fruit cake, over ripe apricots.
