About this Mythical Beasts release

This Single Malt was moved into a Pedro Ximénez Sherry Cask for finishing. PX is an intensely sweet and dark sherry, which complimented the Tormore perfectly. The PX cask underwent a special process called New Era Of Cask (NEOC). This process brought out the full flavour profiles of the sherry cask into the whisky. We are the first company to ever use this process in Scotch whisky.

About Nyami Nyami

The sparkling blue waters of the mighty Spey wind their way through the idyllic Speyside landscape, their depths home to myriad mysteries and myths.  Gliding effortlessly through deep waterways, the River God Nyami Nyami radiates benevolence, using his supernatural powers to provide sustenance for his followers, bestowing wealth and good fortune, and protecting them from dark forces in troubled times. Yet there is a poignancy about his solitude; he searches the rivers endlessly, seeking a reunion with his beloved mate. If thwarted, this powerful beast has only to shake his mighty snake-like tail to send tremors through the earth and waves crashing to the riverbank. Smooth, strong and complex, with a sting in the tail, this mythical beast leaves a lasting impression.
