Delve into the world of Sherry-finished single malt without breaking the bank.

First, there was the 'Sherry Cask Edition'. Now comes a variation focusing on Oloroso sherry maturation in a one litre format. Equal in quality to its sister release, this is another solid value that offers clear sherry input without being overdone. The classic notes of fruit cake, orange zest and sweet nuttiness are all here, sensitively dialled in to match the lighter volume of Tamnavulin's spirit. There is also a lovely peel tang to the finish, completed by whisps of cocoa and ginger biscuit. 40% but tastes like 43%. We preferred it straight, or with just a few ice cubes, but if you must add water, do so judiciously. There is a sweet spot to this whisky that errs on the less is more side. Find it and this gentle dram is a pure delight. Travel retail exclusive. One shipment at the current price.
