Tamdhu launches limited edition Cigar Malt
Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has released a new Cigar Malt Whisky. This limited edition bottling is an unapologetic celebration of one of the classic pairings – Scotch whisky and Havana cigars.
It has been created using a small selection of hand-picked, first fill, European Oak Oloroso Sherry casks and bottled, un-chill-filtered at 53.8%. This combination creates a fullness of texture and strength of flavour that perfectly complements the rich and aromatic flavours found in the world’s best cigars.
Tamdhu is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky to exclusively mature all its whisky in Oloroso sherry seasoned casks and this method adds warmth, depth and sweetness to the whisky, making it an ideal pairing for a fine cigar.
Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, said: “While whisky and cigars have long been enjoyed together, we wanted our Tamdhu Cigar Malt to cement that bond with a marriage of flavour and craft befitting of the two worlds.
This whisky, exclusively matured in first fill European Oak Oloroso sherry casks, provides the perfect accompaniment to the finest cigars. That we were able to use those sherry casks to continue the legacy of the Cigar Malt through the humidor is very special indeed.”
Bottles of Tamdhu Cigar Malt No. 01 are exclusively available to purchase from specialist retailers in the UK, USA, Netherlands, Germany, Taiwan and China. It can also be purchased from www.tamdhu.com/our-collection at RRP £180.00 per 70/75cl bottle (53.8% ABV).
Congratulations Tamdhu on creating a welcome addition to the drinks cabinet of any cigar smoker lucky enough to secure a bottle.
