Tamnavulin Oloroso Cask Edition

Regular drammers will know that I’m quite partial to an Oloroso Cask finish so I was drawn to this airport-only expression after having a sample. The colour is a delicious amber gold and promises much

The nose is akin to a nice moist Christmas cake with its candied fruit, marzipan and spices and complimented with a nip of ginger

The palate manifests citrus fruits with maple syrup soaked apple flan and marmalade on burnt toast. Later on there’s a darker flavour like treacle scones at Halloween

The finish is smooth and longer than I expected from such a young dram (there’s no age statement on the carton) and has that lovely burn when drunk neat

I tried several malts when passing through the airport and settled on this which surprised me as the others were all aged. I paired this with a Partagas number 4 cigar and they are the perfect couple! Slàinte mhath 🥃

    Just returned from a buisness trip and had a stopover in Dubai and picked up a 1ltr bottle of 18yr old Loch Lomond inchmurren ,an absolute beautiful dram very topical fruit initially but a pleasure to drink .If you get the chance give it a try highly recommended
