Tamnavulin Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl £20.00 Asda

10
Found 27th Oct
Double Cask matured for a classic Speyside taste; rich, smooth and mellow. The distillery at Tamnavulin was opened in 1966 on the banks of River Livet, deep in the heart of Speyside, the most celebrated whisky producing region in Scotland. Amber gold in colour, this rich and elegant Speyside single malt whisky has hints of sweet toffee, honey and, marzipan on the nose with refreshing pineapple, pear and subtle citrus notes on the palate.

What would you prefer when talking about £20 then ?

I’d either grab a far better one for £25 - Highland Park 12, Glenmorangie 10, Old Pulteney 12, or Laphroig 10 (if you like it), or try some of the cheaper single malts in places like Lidl, Aldi, M&S...

I should mention those prices are on Amazon with prime delivery. Ardmore on there too for £18...

I like this one, normally pay £22

The ratings on the whisky exchange are a joke, nearly all 4/5 or higher, same with Amazon. Try a more credible source.

An accurate summary here from maltreview.com.

Overall: the low expectations of this whisky were met. I’ve heard criticism from some and my own perspective is if I was celebrating a 50th anniversary then I’d at least made it memorable for the right reasons. This is bottom shelf supermarket fare and as such will find favour with those who are price driven and prefer a lick of sherry taint. The casks involved in this whisky creation must be overtired and the briefest of sherry finishes. Somewhat disappointing or it could just be like Jura the spirit from the stills itself if flawed.

At £20 this is correctly priced although the Aldi single malts offer much better value for money and importantly flavour. A little water lifts this one up a couple of notches but it’s nothing memorable yet somehow remains a solid sipper as we managed to get through half a bottle easily without too much complaints.
