2009 Carn Mor Strictly Limited Tamnavulin 13 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
After the Glenlivet, Tamnavulin was the second distillery to be built in the glen of the River Livet. The Whyte & Mackay owned venture has been behind the rest of the market when it comes to official releases - it wasn't until around 2020 that a core range became available. Tamnavulin's six stills are large, the fermentations short and the distillate tends to be light and cereal accented, sometimes with a touch of grassiness. This one was matured in American oak and has a pleasing sweetness throughout, enhanced by a greater than usual sense of purity. The finish is light but peppery making for uncomplicated everyday drinking, only with more oomph than you might expect from this distillery. 1185 bottles produced. 47.5% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Notes from the bottlers... Traditional sherbert lemon candy, sweet, tangy and effervescent.
