Speyside whisky maker Tamdhu has announced the global launch of its limited-edition Cigar Malt No. 01.
The expression celebrates the time-honoured pairing of whisky and cigars – and Tamdhu has also created two bespoke humidors, inspired by and infused with its whisky, to celebrate its release.
Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has released a new limited edition Cigar Malt Whisky.
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 cigars.
Tamdhu is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky to exclusively mature all its whisky in Oloroso sherry seasoned casks.
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. All bottles are sold out on the official Tamdhu website, retailed for £180.00 (including taxes) / ₹19,000 (excluding taxes) per 70/75cl bottle (53.8% ABV).
