A cracking new presentation bottle, which only compliments the fluid contained within.
Recently purchased by those fine chaps from Ian Macleod & Co. This is a cracking distillery now reborn and spawning there first cask strength offering to us.
A small number of exceptional sherry oak casks have been hand selected and bottled unchillfiltered at natural colour and high strength to represent Tamdhu in its purest form.
Each batch is unique and varies slightly in style and strength but each captures the rich, complex essence of a sherry cask matured whisky.
On the nose there are red berries, walnuts, hints of pecan, delicate citrus and oak, creamy vanilla and cookie dough.
The palate has a powerful burst of richness, fantastically rounded by sherry oak with spice and dried fruit. Kept on the palate, lighter fruits come to the fore with apricot, orange and creme brulee.
The finish is rich, biscuity and malty with toast and marmalade and a pleasing, lingering fruitness.
A great dram, highly recommended by Robbie.
