70cl * 40% ABV * Scotland
Tamnavulin is a rather modern distillery, only established in 1966 during the Scotch boom. Sold and re-sold a number of times over the next few decades, it was finally snapped up by Vijay Mallya's United Spirits. This is matured in both American oak barrels and then Sherry casks to produce a whisky aromatic of demerara sugar, ginger root, baked apples and good quality milk chocolate. It drinks in a softly sweet and easy-drinking style.
