Tamnavulin Sherry Cask Edition is the second no-age-statement expression released by the Moray-based distillery, whose whisky is predominantly used in blends by its owner Whyte & Mackay.
The expression was matured in American oak barrels before being finished in three different oloroso Sherry casks sourced from individual cooperages in Spain.
Bottled at 40% abv, the whisky is said to have ‘enticing aromas of vanilla, caramel, banana and milk chocolate’ on the nose and a palate with ‘warm, sweet flavours of maple syrup, raisin and orange’.
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.
Palette : 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.
