Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has released the latest edition in its Cigar Malt collection.
Cigar Malt III is a 53.8% ABV, non-chill filtered single malt that’s said to be “meticulously matured to pair perfectly with a hand-rolled cigar.”
Tamdhu Cigar Malt III undergoes a special maturation journey, developing its natural colour and flavor exclusively within first fill European oak Oloroso sherry casks. Each cask has been described as being “carefully curated, ensuring the wood has a strikingly robust character, capable of matching the opulence of a premium cigar.”
“Following the resounding success of Cigar Malt II, we take immense pleasure in introducing the latest expression in this distinguished series: Cigar Malt III,” said Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, in a prepared statement. “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 for purchase at specialist retailers globally and directly from www.tamdhu.com at £225.
