Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has released a new Cigar Malt, the second exclusive bottling that celebrates an age-old pairing.
Cigar Malt II is characterised by Tamdhu’s dedication to full maturation in the finest first fill European Oak Oloroso Sherry Casks.
Bottled unchillfiltered and at 53.8% ABV, the whisky provides a richness of texture and strength of flavour that is ideally suited to pair with a hand-rolled Havana.
Tamdhu describe their new release as having a “balanced, creamy nose giving way to crystallised ginger, rich golden syrup, and hints of sherry oak. Winter fruits soaked in sherry complement the opulent, thick mouthfeel, which is followed by a rich malt loaf and vanilla cream. A long, lingering, and rewarding finish brings an unmistakable hint of sherry, with honeyed apricots and toasted nuts.”
The Tamdhu Distillery Manager, Sandy McIntyre, said: “After the success of our debut Cigar Malt, we are delighted to announce the second expression in the series. This latest release honours the age-old cigar and whisky pairing, and boasts a robust flavour profile designed to stand up to the finest cigars and complement their rich aroma. It’s the perfect representation of our dedication to full-term sherry cask maturation.”
1,000 cases of Tamdhu Cigar Malt No.II have been made and bottles are available via www.tamdhu.com or specialist retailers in the UK.
