Tamnavulin 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. Tamnavulin Double Cask was released in 2016, to celebrate the distillery’s 50th anniversary.
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.
Nose: Sweet toffee, stewed fruits, with hints of chocolate.
Palate: Light to medium body, toffee, spice, malty with hints of orange zest.
Finish: Medium length finish with mocha and toffee.
