Tamdhu Cigar Malt III

14th September 2023
Tamdhu Cigar Malt III, matured in first fill European Oak Oloroso Sherry Casks to harmonise seamlessly with a hand-rolled cigar.

Tamdhu Cigar Malt IIITamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has unveiled the latest addition to its sherry rich Cigar Malt series, Tamdhu Cigar Malt III.

Tamdhu Cigar Malt III, a non-chill filtered single malt boasting a robust and no doubt flavoursome 53.8% ABV, distinguished by its unmistakably opulent sherry rich flavour profile, this limited release dram has been matured to harmonise seamlessly with a hand-rolled cigar.

The journey of Tamdhu Cigar Malt III is an extraordinary one, as it evolves its intricate natural hues and flavours exclusively within first-fill European oak Oloroso sherry casks. Every cask is thoughtfully selected, ensuring the wood imparts a strikingly robust character, capable of complementing the lavishness of a premium cigar.

The bold influence of first-fill European sherry oak casks is said not only to bestow Cigar Malt III with a captivating aroma but also imbues it with a warm, rich hue that pays homage to Tamdhu's renowned Speyside character. The whisky is said to tantalise with the fragrance of toasted gingerbread and honey, which gracefully evolves into decadent notes of creamy panna cotta and dried fruits. Mirroring the deliberate draw of a cigar, this single malt will progressively envelop the palate with its full-bodied layers, culminating in a gratifying finish that lingers, leaving behind a jammy aura of apricots and indulgent praline.

Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, 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."

Tamdhu Cigar Malt III has a RRP of £225
and will be available from specialist online whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
