Tamnavulin – 1986 – 25 years – 50,00%

Douglas of Drumlanrig 
Special Rebottling for La Boutique du Chemin from  Old Malt Cask OMC2180
Distilled : 12/1986 – Bottled : 04/2012 – Cask number :  8432 – Alcool : 50,00 %

“82,5/100 (= Good whisky worth trying) nose 20 – taste 22 – finish 19,5 – balance 21. If you taste this blind I doubt if any more than five per cent of you would recognise this as a 25 year old malt: I certainly wouldn’t. As youhtful and juicily gristy as a malt a third of that age, this is the Cliff Richard of Speyside. Amazing what 25 years in a third filled cask at the bottom of warehouse can do… or not! “ (Jim Murray – Whisky Bibble 2013)

Tamnavulin distillery
Sur le versant pentu du glen, la Livet est rejointe par l’un de ses affluents, un ruisseau nommé Allt a Choire (Corrie en anglais).
C’est là que se trouve la distillerie Tamnavulin (dont le nom signifie «moulin sur la colline »). On l’orthographie parfois Tomnavoulin, mais l’Écosse est coutumière de telles divergences.
Tamnavulin est la seule distillerie située près de la rivière Livet, même si celle-ci donne son nom à des foules de distilleries de la contrée.
De tous les malts produits dans la vallée de la Livet et alentour, l’élégant Tamnavulin est le plus léger par le corps, mais pas à la bouche. Il est un peu plus affirmé que le Tomintoul, auquel il s’apparente le plus.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
