Tamnavulin Double Cask was released in 2016, to celebrate Tamnavulin distillery’s 50th anniversary. The distillery was built by Invergordon Distillers in 1966 during the great whisky boom, and sold to Whyte & Mackay in 1993. Its new owner mothballed the distillery two years later and it lay silent until 2007, when Whyte & Mackay itself was sold to Indian group United Spirits.
The price point makes it an excellent value single malt. It was matured in ex-bourbon casks, then finished in sherry casks, hence the name.

Palate: Light to medium body, toffee, spice, malty with hints of orange zest.
Finish: Medium length finish with mocha and toffee.
