Each cask in this latest release has been carefully curated, ensuring the wood has a strikingly robust character, capable of matching the opulence of a premium cigar. 

Tamdhu Cigar Malt III, is said to deliver notes of gingerbread dipped in honey, panna cotta, sherry-dipped raisins, malt biscuits, apricot jam and rich praline.

Commenting on the launch, 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, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £225.
