A wonderfully well-sherried single malt from the Tamnavulin Distillery, which begins its life in American oak barrels before being finished in three different types of sherry casks! Three of ’em! Shouldn’t come as a surprise, but if you’re a fan of all those Christmas cakey, chocolatey, red berry-y notes, you’ll probably be into this one from the Speyside-based distillery.
Nose: Brown sugar, gingersnaps and cinnamon rolls, raspberry jam and a hint of toasted malt.
Palate: Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut, more pastry notes, honeycomb and Christmas cake.
Finish: Dried apricot, citrus peels and vanilla pod.
Food Pairing: Dark Chocolate (Western)
