Lost Scottish Single Malt returns home.

Tamnavulin distillery was founded in 1966, when John Lennon first met Yoko, and with the pure underground springs, they started making fine Single Malts. But the distillery was closed down in 1995 and was reopened more than two decades later. Their Single Malt was mostly used in blends and sometimes a few barrels would come out as indie expressions.

Until 2016, when a fantastic bottle celebrating 50 years of distillery came out and it was Tamnavulin's first original release since the 90s. It's called Double Cask, which means they initially mature the Spirit in American oak barrels, before they give them the final finish in ex-Sherry casks. Resurrection appropriately tastes like Christmas with flavors of festive pudding, spiced rum sweetness and chocolate.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Erik
Erik,
Smooth and sweet with a buttery nose.
 
Mehdi
Mehdi,
Dry and short honey finish. Easy on the nose but is watery on the palate.
 
Richard
Richard,
The nose held much promise, but could not get past the watery mouth feel.

Outstanding!

Pear chocolate caramel
 
Martin
Martin,
A sweet blend vanilla, caramel, apple and spice upon initial nosing. Tasting reveals some oak and spice followed by a bit of bitter chocolate, vanilla, and apple. Taste floats away shortly after. Allow it to sit for a bit before nosing to let the alcohol sting dissipate.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a rich birth; while a rich & spicy life leads to a long & warming death.

Mathew,
Carmel and vanilla on the nose. Sweet caramel with chocolate undertones. A bit of oak and spice through the finish. I would drink this again.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very light body. Ok, but nothing to write home about.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Disappointing! The nose is so nice. It is apple sweetness and creamy. The flavor however is a generic spicey sweetness with barley. One of my favorite noses on a scotch, so maybe I hoped for more from the taste. Still not a bad dram.

Caramel, toffee, and burnt sugar on the nose. Hints of barley and anise. Cocoa and caramel on the pallet, accompanied by oak and Cajun spices. Aftertaste develops vanilla and oak, with grassy flavors, rather short in duration. A couple of water drops opens up caramel nose even more, and floral taste dominates on the pallet. Hints of bread and more grassy flavors. Overall very pleasant and rather smooth.

Definitely some dark chocolate up front. An excellent after dinner whisky.

Gregory,
One of my favorites, love the sweetness, almost like chocolate palate.
 
James
James,
Beautiful rich color and there is a lingering sense of sweetness. But, the spiciness was a bit too strong for me to give it a higher rating.
