    Dark amber shines out of the glass when you smell this Tamnavulin. The first impression suggests a cobbler's workshop. The impressions of leather are very clear. Over time, the leather goes into the background and fresh biscuit appears. The taste is difficult to grasp. Lemon cake with frosting roughly sums it up. Lemon flavors, lots of sweetness and heather honey. In the background a hint of banana. The mouth is completely filled. The medium-long finish brings the sweet again.
    A whisky that puts the connoisseur in the pinch again and again: If you smell it, you do not want to stop it and drink it. If you have it in your mouth you do not want to swallow it. Whisky can be so delicious!

    Excellent whisky - a positive surprise.
    • Nose
      Mellow, grassy/ floral and fruity. Surprisingly light and fresh considering the age. Notes of quince jelly, Darjeeling tea and orange cake. I really like.
    • Taste
      Mellow, starting rather spicy. Clean, balanced and dry with notes of oak wood, orange cake, vanilla, caramel and lots of white pepper. Green vegetables as well. Lovely and totally pleasant.
    • Finish
      Medium long and pleasant. Rather dry on notes of green vegetables and white pepper. I cannot taste the parma violets that are stated on the label, but I never ate any, so I am not sure :))
