Tamnavulin Cabernet Sauvignon Edition
Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland
Reviewed December 11, 2022 (edited December 18, 2022)
Nose: Malt, oak/wood, summer berries, vanilla, warm plastic Palate: Sweet. Dusty upfront, nutty, woody, summer fruit and berries, rose/floral Finish: Medium finish. Fruit/berry jam, mild spiciness, liquorice. The aftertaste builds on the fruit compote notes and sweetness. This is a sweet and fruity dram. There’s a good amount of immediate dryness, a little spiciness and hints of rose and liquorice. There’s a lot of youthful flavour, not necessarily complex, and not completely integrated, but tasty and quaffable. Not bad at all.
33.75 GBP per Bottle
@cascode I have a bit of a soft spot for Tamnavulin. It was a recognisable component of the Whyte & MacKay blended that was one of my gateways into whisky as a student in the early 90s.
Sounds appealing. I’ve developed a liking for Tamnavulin over the last couple of years, they make some tasty and affordable everyday quaffers.
