Tamnavulin 1990

Bought – Justminiatures, 13th November 2013

A discontinued version of Tamnavulin from the Connoisseurs Choice range by Gordon & MacPhail. The ‘Tasting Notes’ for this whisky from the Gordon & MacPhail website says:

AROMA without water

A malty freshness, floral notes, hints of fresh grass, a delicate smoke intertwines and sweetness – marshmallows.

TASTE without water

Soft with a rounded spice, some sweetness, hints of stewed apples.

AROMA with water

Fresher and more fruity, suntle citrus edge – lemons and limes. With a hint of a spice lingering in the background.

TASTE with water

Initially citrus fruit influences – orange rind. A sweetness remains. Well rounded and delicate.

This malt used to be sold at ‘Master of Malt’ where one purchaser gave it a glowing review and 4.5/5 stars. Sounds good to me! 🙂

One response to “Tamnavulin 1990

  1. I recommend you try the more recent expressions, in particular the red cask number 1 (NOT no.3) or sherry cask no. 2. For me, the no.1 is THE best value whisky on the market today. Often reduced to £22 at the Coop or Morrisons, it is quite brilliant Speyside whisky. The Bible score is 94 (the sherry no.2 scores 91).
