Tamnavulin Double Cask
Tamnavulin // Speyside, Scotland
Tamnavulin Double Cask was the first release from the distillery in this century. Much of its production finds its way into blends, but now Tamnavulin finally has its own expression. The single malt whisky is first matured in American oak barrels before a finishing period in sherry casks.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeAmerican oak and sherry casks
"The Tamnavulin Double Cask opens up on sweet notes like honey, orange liqueur and caramel glazed red apple, but with a hint of pilsner, and a slight nuttiness. The oranges make an encore on the palate, joined by ginger and pepper, followed by a lingering bitterness. A bit of a pedestrian whisky, but it is priced accordingly."
