In 1898 our founders secured their first precious shipment of sherry casks; 120 years on, Tamdhu is the only Scottish distillery to mature exclusively in the finest Oloroso sherry casks, nothing less.
This scarce wood bears two great gifts: colour and taste. Tamdhu’s deep amber is developed by the cask, nothing more – and each dram owes its rich, complex taste to the wood it called home. But which single cask to choose for this anniversary bottling?
Our distillery team happily stepped forward, to enjoy many hours of tasting, selecting, and more tasting – just to be certain. Bottled in strictly limited numbers and at cask strength, this Tamdhu Single Cask Distillery Team Edition marks 120 years of our craft; an exclusive Speyside Single Malt for sherry wood connoisseurs.
Nose: Toffee apple, dates and raisins, cinnamon notes hint at spiciness to come
Palate: Sweet and rich muscovado sugar, leading into butterscotch – with marmalade oranges and fruity richness
Finish: Toffee, ripe bananas and light pepper. Smooth, deep and long-lasting.
