Tamnavulin Single Malt Review

Tamnavulin Single Malt When a distillery that closed and reopened finally releases a new whisky there's always a bit of intrepidation and excitement, and both are here for Tamnavulin which reopened in 2007 after a 12 year sleep.

This NAS example is priced competively at under £35 and sometimes cheaper in supermarkets.

Fruity, sweet, juicy, yummy, this is very drinkable, the palate doesnt quite live up the hype of the nose, but a decent session dram this would make thats for sure, the problem being the finish is quite short making it quite forgetable.

Available to buy from supermarkets for a bargain price.

Many Thanks to Tamnavulin for the Official Sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


instantly very fruity, waxy fruit peels, sweet figs, almost artificially sweet, like over sweet fruit chews, hints of sweet airfix glue, the nose works for me and has my mouth watering


more malty that the nose, a bit of a let down in the lack of big fruity notes i expected from the nose, hints of balso wood and the fruit creeps back in to the background, more vanilla essence and artificial sweetner


short and sweet
