Tamdhu - 18 year old Speyside Single Malt Whisky (70cl, 46.8%)
Online exclusive - not available in store
Tamdhu only matures in the finest Oloroso Seasoned Sherry Casks sourced from Spain, so when a small selection of these fine casks came of age, the time was right for the distillery to bring them together to craft a very limited 18-Year-Old release.
This scarce wood bears two great gifts: colour and taste. Tamdhu 18 Year Old’s deep copper hue is developed by the cask, nothing more – and each drop owes its rich, complex taste to its home of over a decade and a half.
Tamdhu 18 Year Old is bottled un-chillfiltered. A magnificent Speyside Single Malt for the sherry wood connoisseur.
Combining American Oak Oloroso and European Oak Oloroso casks, the 18-Year-Old unites Tamdhu’s signature fruity spirit and 18 long years of full-term sherry maturation to deliver layers of indulgent flavour and a deep natural colour which reflects the quality of the oak.
Bottled at 46.8% abv and non-chill filtered, on the nose the Tamdhu 18-Year-Old delivers rich dark fruits with ripe cherry and plum. Zesty citrus notes cut through an indulgent base of nutty milk chocolate and honey-baked oats.
To taste, crisp red apple emerges alongside dried fruits, with some sweet spice coming in the form of cinnamon, vanilla, and brown sugar.
A long, lingering, and rewarding finish brings spiced stewed apple and an unmistakable hint of sherry.
