Product Description

Tamdhu is aged in sherry casks and are of the same quality insisted upon in 1897. Only the best European and American oak is selected to mature the precious spirit. These casks are amongst the finest in the industry with a high proportion being first-fill and teeming with flavour.

A few interesting facts:

1) Tamdhu is one of almost two dozen malt whisky distilleries that were founded over a century ago during the'whisky boom' of the late 19th century and which have managed to survive until this day. 

 

2) Most of the production from Tamdhu distillery is used in blends like Famous Grouse, J&B and Cutty Sark.

 

3) The barley that is used for Tamdhu (Cellar, Optic & Golden Promise) generally comes from the East of Scotland. Tamdhu distillery processes circa 44 tonnes of barley on any given working day.

 

4) Tamdhu distillery has nine Oregon Pine washbacks with a capacity of over 50,000 litres each.

 

5) In 1966 the malting capacity at the Tamdhu whisky distillery was doubled.

  1. One of the best bang for your buck Scotch's 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Dec 2015

    Ive enjoyed a few bottles of Tamdhu. It is one of the best bang for your buck Scotch's on the market. The closest bottle I can compare it to is Macallan 18 but it tastes far better.
    I recommend this bottle for every occasion!

  2. 3 1/2 Stars if you please 3 Star Review

    Quality is definitely there. Casks coming through very well with the notes you'd expect from a sherried Speysider (hazel nut, toffee, dried fruit, smoke, allspice, and a bit of custard(?)) although somewhat subdued as it seemed a bit over engineered in it's presentation (coloring, chill filtered, 40 %). Complex yet somewhat light character (seemingly much older malt in here that 10 years). This may be a good next step for relatively new scotch tasters that have gone beyond the more basic malts but aren't ready for more exotic or explosive flavored malts.
