Tamnavulin-Glenlivet 10 Year Old Naturally Light from 1980s (75cl, 40%)
A collectible bottling of Tamnavulin-Glenlivet 10 year old bottled in the 1980s, when many Speyside distilleries still used the Glenlivet suffix.
Tamnavulin distillery was opened in 1966 by Invergordon Distillers as a response to the increasing demands for their blends, and such provision has always been the distillery's focus. Despite this, Invergordon Distillers were always interested in bottling their single malts, and Tamnavulin was no different. They even boasted the legendary Moon Import are their Italian agents in the later 1980s. When Invergordon were bought over by Whyte & Mackay in 1995, the distillery was mothballed, but eventually re-opened in 2007. It now has a more prominent range for its single malt brand, and earlier distillery bottlings like this are becoming something of a rarity.
