Tamdhu has launched the third edition of its Cigar Malt whisky.
The Cigar Malt collection utilises the brand's characteristic sherry-cask maturation to create a flavour profile that reflects the robustness and richness of a premium cigar – and to make a whisky that would pair well with a cigar.
Cigar Malt III is matured exclusively in first-fill European oak oloroso sherry casks and is bottled non-chill filtered at 53.8% ABV. Tasting notes supplied by Tamdhu say the single malt has notes of gingerbread, honey, panna cotta, dried fruits, and praline.
Tamdhu distillery manager Sandy McIntyre said: "Following the resounding success of Cigar Malt II, we take immense pleasure in introducing the latest expression in this distinguished series: Cigar Malt III.
“Reflecting the timeless pairing of cigars and single malts, this exceptional release showcases an especially bold flavour profile that harmonises beautifully with the finest of cigars. Cigar Malt III is testament to Tamdhu’s unwavering commitment to full-term sherry cask maturation, boasting an unparalleled depth and character.”
Cigar Malt III is available from tamdhu.com and at specialist retailers globally with a recommended price of £225.
