Tamnavulin Sherry Cask Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Tamnavulin Sherry Cask Edition Reviews

Half the price of the classics but not half the quality.

As Speysides go there are of course better ones on the market for the real connoisseurs, but sometimes a real world view is required. I can pick up a bottle of this for £20 in my local Tesco's, and it is drinkable. Christmas Cake spices and dried fruits, chocolate mouse and vanilla. Whilst a little rough around the edges there is always a bottle at hand so I can enjoy a whisky when I want without worrying about the cost or hassle of ordering another bottle, because I can just add it to my next shop.

On offer worth a try .

Prefer the double oak cask to this edition but not too bad overall . Bought it also because I generally like Tamnavulin and tried this £30 for litre Tesco with clubcard .

Probably don't bother.

This whisky has what I like to call, a "chemical maturation". There are just some budget friendly whiskies that to me, taste like they have had some sort of chemicals added, and its all kinds of wrong!

Its not the price bracket as a whole; I've had plenty of great budget friendly drams, where you can tell the distillery cared about the product, even if it wasn't a 30 year old single cask. Glenfarclas 10 for example, gives this a huge run for its money! And when I compare everything between the two, it's like pitching Usain Bolt's 100m sprint, up against the council fulfilling a pothole request. One is pleasant and exciting, the other infuriating and a lot of hard work.

I also find the same chemical taste in the current Aberlour 12. At this point, the A'bunadh is the only Aberlour I'll currently touch, and thats not really a sustainable price for regular drinking. It often feels like the 'whisky mill' is churning as much volume as possible, to get that $, with literally no concern or pride for the products they pedal. And I'm not naive, I know this is exactly what is happening, but isn't it a shame!

I'm not expecting the world from whiskies like this Tamnavulin and others in the price bracket, I'd just respect it more if those producing them respected their own products a bit more, and produced whisky that didn't taste like it was processed to hell! (Reminding me of those circular ham slices) when other distilleries seem to be able to produce decent products, for the same amount of coin.

This Tamnavulin itself, was very thin and even had some smokiness/peatiness to it, along with the aforementioned bleach. Really not the traditional Speyside single malt I was hoping for.

Easy, gentle, understated and cheap - sorry - VFM!

Very very easy-drinking - a gentle dram with a gentler finish. People have said bland - I’d just call it easy-drinking really. I can’t detect any of the harshness referred to by others, but I also would agree that the sherry casks angle is a little understated. Summary: jolly nice, I’m halfway theough the bottle after 2 evenings by the firepit, I’d give it 4 stars, but seeing as the price is soooo reasonable I’ll give it 5.

Worthy attempt but lacking in flavour and distinction

Hmmm, considering this is the Sherry Edition, finished in 3 types of Sherry Cask I expected a bit more. I find a lack of flavour and character. It's sweet, fruity, light, and inoffensive, but, it's almost a liqueur, it dosn't really seem to be a Whisky. Would go well with a slice of xmas cake, but I prefer the more rounded double cask.

Really nice

I have thoroughly tasted it and the Sherry flavour is very apparent but not overpowering, it brings with it an appetizing nose. I wouldn't say it is the best whisky I have tasted but I would definitely buy it again, in fact I have. I think it's best with about 2 teaspoons of water, which slightly mellows it and brings out the flavour

The best of the best!!!

One of the best whiskey I’ve ever tasted! Perfect in every way! And when you sipped - astonishing!👌🥃👏

Rubbish not worthy of one stay

Nose: Reminiscent of methylated spirits
Palate: Awful
Aftertaste: Harsh.
Very poor whisky: Should be banned: danger of giving Speyside a bad name

Probably the worst sherry cask malt I have tried!

This is a terribly bitter whiskey with barely any classic Speyside or sherry notes present. The nose is rather bland and uninviting, but the palate is just terrible. Not sure what sort of barrels they used to get such a bitter taste. This is the complete opposite of what sherry casks are supposed to produce. It's one of those whiskeys that you can't drink without a ton of ice or coke. This would only be ok as a mixer at less than half of its price. Otherwise it's just a scam sherry malt. Stay away!!!

thoroughly enjoyable

One of the best value for money whiskies on the market. Helps make a Speyside whisky, the most enjoyable of all Scotch whiskies
