Claxton’s Tamnavulin 5 Year Old Single Malt Scotch
Claxton’s was formed in 2011 with the first range of single-cask Scotch whiskies finally ready for a very successful launch four years later in 2015. Building on this with subsequent releases and quickly developing a loyal following across Europe, by 2019 it was time to establish a cask maturation warehouse. One hundred years after the Landale family bought Dalswinton Estate in 1919, Claxton’s moved into Sandbed House on the banks of the River Nith, in the heart of the Scottish Lowlands, and the Dalswinton Bond was born.
Quality, variety, and individuality are at the forefront of Claxton’s ethos when combining spirit and wood for maturation. Every shape, size, and type of cask is used for a specific reason. Their releases currently include Warehouse No.1 and Warehouse No.8, Exploration Series, Grain Barn, and the Dalswinton Series.
Cask Type: Refill PX Sherry Hogshead
The Exploration series focuses on single-cask releases with quality and accessibility in mind. This range encourages customers to explore the whisky regions that might otherwise have been inaccessible.
As with all the Exploration Series, this Tamnavulin was bottled at 50% ABV. This is a higher ABV than most mainstream distillery bottlings, allowing you to enjoy high-strength whisky whilst also creating consistency across the range, making it easier to compare flavors and styles. Matured in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask, this expression delivers citrus notes on the nose and a natural viscous sweet profile with dried fruits, such as dates and raisins, on the palate.
