Tamnavulin Single Malt Whiskies
Don’t you love a story that begins with a chequered past and turns into a roaring success? Such is the case with Tamnavulin, a Speyside distillery established in 1966. Closed in 1995, it reopened in 2007 after a major refurbishment. Previously, many of its whiskies had gone into blends. However, in 2016 all of that changed when the distillery released its Double Cask expression, followed by the Sherry Cask Edition in 2019.
While its home of Tomnavoulin may be small (around 40 residents), the operation is nothing but. Operated by Glasgow-based Whyte & Mackay, the fifth largest Scotch whisky manufacturer with a presence in over 50 countries, Tamnavulin today is one of the fastest-growing single malt brands in the world.

TAMNAVULIN DOUBLE CASK (40% abv)
The Tamnavulin Double Cask (RM 260) has been matured in American oak barrels for a sweet, mellow taste with a rich, smooth sherry cask finish. It’s amber-gold in colour with rich warm aromas of apple, toffee and honey with sweet marzipan and subtle tangy marmalade notes. On the palate, it’s fresh with mellow pear, creamy peach, pineapple and a hint of caramel. Their signature Speyside malt concludes in a rich, smooth and refreshing finish.
TAMNAVULIN SHERRY CASK EDITION (40% abv)
The Tamnavulin Sherry Cask Edition (RM 260) was matured in American oak barrels and enhanced with finesse in three different sherry casks. It’s a classic revelation from the Speyside Valley. It too is amber-gold in hue but offers a bouquet of apple pie just out of the oven and vanilla. The nose is complex, giving way to nuances of banana, caramelised orange and fresh ginger. In the mouth, it’s warm and inviting with displays of glazed nectarines, frangipane, sticky toffee pudding and oranges. It waves a complex and rich farewell with a fruit cake and ripe apricot salute.
