Speyside’s Tamnavulin Distillery has revealed its latest Single Malt, the ‘Tamnavulin Sherry Cask Edition’.
The newly released Sherry Cask Edition shows the classic character of the Speyside distillery and its continued union with Sherry. It is matured in American White Oak Barrels and enhanced by a finesse in three different types of Oloroso Sherry casks created from a selection of the finest European and American Hogsheads.
The team behind the popular Single Malt expertly sourced casks from three individual cooperages across Spain. Each cooperage selected for its ability to gift different flavours to this single malt and bring to life the quintessential Sherry notes of raisin, vanilla and orange.
This three Sherry cask finish is warm & inviting, with exotic flavours of glazed nectarines and frangipane with a complex finish of fruit cake and over ripe apricots. Partnered with the signature sweet, smooth and mellow profile of Tamnavulin.
Joining Tamnavulin Double Cask, the Sherry Cask Edition offers richness, intensity and complexity. With an accessible fruity profile the new release gives shoppers the opportunity delve into the world of Sherry finished single malt without breaking the bank.
In store now in an exclusive 1L format for Tesco consumers RSP £45, a 70cl version RSP £32 will be available to multiple grocers nationwide in the second half of 2019.
