Product Description

This exceptional bottling has been produced from two bourbon barrels of Tamnavulin single malt, aged for more than 40 years. 

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Honeysuckle and gingerbread biscuits complement soft baked apples and pears. Toasted vanilla pods with dried fruit and a background eucalyptus note give a hint of the whisky's age. Light notes of waxed and polished oak are balanced by pine-needle spiciness.

Palate: Brown sugar leads, with walnuts, hazelnuts and a thick, rounded mouthfeel. Rich milk chocolate and soft Victoria sponge follow, with poached pears and vanilla ice cream. At the end, mint leaves dusted with icing sugar come through, with a hint of spice leaving you wanting more.

Finish: Gracefully fading away, with a rich orange and spicy cumin.
