A Can-Dhu-Spirit.

Tamdhu started out as a revolutionary distillery in the time of early railroad construction, electricity and industrialisation in Scotland. Tamdhu’s founders were obsessed with the idea of perfection and constructed the most advanced distillery of its time. They did so with the help of local natural resources – now, after so many years, their heritage is here for us to enjoy.

The distillery was closed for a little while and their water of life was used to make other blended Whiskies at some point. They came back a few years ago however, under a new autonomous leadership, with a simple goal: to make it as it was and to bring it to life in its former majesty.

Tamdhu 10 Year Old is Sherry cask matured in the best combination of first fill and refill Sherry casks. They are handpicked to deliver only the best product. The Whisky masters of Tamdhu use a mere wisp of peat smoke to prepare their barley.

Danny
Danny,
Was not a fan
 
Chris
Chris,
OK - good starting point
 
Mat
Mat,
Very picky when it comes to Scotch. Have my core three that I like to enjoy on occasion so I was skeptical about this one. Boy was I wrong. One of the smoothest scotches I've ever tasted, and I shared the sample with some friends who aren't scotch people and they all want a bottle. Guess my xmas list just got a bit easier.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
An enjoyable place to start tasting. Flavors are simple at first and easy to enjoy, but become more complex as you taste and learn what to look for.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
For a 10 year, this tastes fantastic. I’m More of a bourbon guy but it’s scotches like this that make me want to try more and more. Certainly not the best I’ve ever had, but it is delicious and very enjoyable.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Not like it. I’d be willing to try a different Scotch
 
Mary
Mary,
So smooth, it went down like pancake syrup. I will def be ordering a bottle or two.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Lacks the smooth, well blended flavor profile that older scotches have. I found it very forward with the pepper and ginger to taste with some cinnamon on the back end. The nose was very sharp and I couldn't detect any particular smells. Definitely better with a splash of water and is one of the spicer scotches that I've had.
 
Celeste
Celeste,
I thought this was the tastiest scotch that I have had to date. Absolutely fantastic
 
Deborah
Deborah,
I was surprised by the brightness of this drink and definitely can identify some of the fruity notes from the spiral. I’m excited to try more scotches now!
 
Lindsay
Lindsay,
Holds its own with flavor. Lovely to sip.
 
Ben
Ben,
Nose: marzipan, Christmas cake, vanilla, spices, butterscotch, caramel. Mouth: citrus, spice, heat, chili, berries, later heat subsides to a more buttery mouth feel.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
A bit sweet, which made it an easy drinker, but not one I would go to when I want to sit and have a deep thought alongside a dram.
 
MAYA
MAYA,
Strong caramel, spicy, not too sweet.
 
Heather
Heather,
It was an easy to sip. It was a little on the sweet side but not too bad. Nice notes of spice.
 
Randy
Randy,
I’ll try anything once, scotch is not typically in my wheelhouse but this one could be found on my shelf.
 
Audra
Audra,
This was a fine scotch, but not exceptional. The pepper balances the caramel and fruit nicely. It’s light smokiness is enjoyable and not overpowering.
 
Sanford
Sanford,
Not generally a fan or young scotch.
 
Lance
Lance,
Enjoyed the richness of the flavor. Strong from start to finish, would look to include in the future.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
This is the second scotch I've tried and I am extremely impressed with it. Super smooth and very nice flavor.
 
Melissa
Melissa,
Best of the bunch! Smooth, savory, perfect on stones!
 
Eric
Eric,
Curious to try this as part of my welcome pack since I prefer speysides. Brown sugar, vanilla cream, sponge cake and damp earth or peat smoke on the nose. Palate of pepper, mild dried fruit and smoke, milk chocolate late in the finish followed by woods and spicy, dry, oil that lingers Missing the sherry notes I was expecting. IMO Macallan 12 sherry cask is an infinitely better scotch at the same price
 
Scott
Scott,
I am a bourbon first kind of guy.....but this is nice. So smooth with a bit of sweet an a bit of fruit at the end. I might need a bottle for my bar.
 
Florina
Florina,
I like the favor it went good with my cigar. Very smooth going down. Had a couple of people over to see how the like it. Only one of them didn’t like it.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Got into and fell in love with Scotch years ago, but never had Tamdhu before. Sample that came in the Welcome Box was fairly awful. Worst nose I've ever experienced from a Single Malt. Terrible, sulphur-y sherry casks to blame, I'd say. Palette and finish weren't as bad, but no way they could dig out from the nose and cask influence. Willing to believe I simply have a freak sample from a freak bottle, but...yikes. Shame.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
So so. I had a really hard time picking up any distinctive notes with my nose which led me to believe this would be a subtle whisky. However, once it touched my palate the spicey/pepper flavors hit me like a truck. I could taste the smoke in the background but it wasn't enough to overcome the spice flavors. I did taste chocolate, but only at the very end and only as a wisp leaving the tongue wanting more.
 
Greg
Greg,
i have tried but I just don't care for the smokiness of a Scotch
 
Natalie
Natalie,
I quite liked this. I don't normally consider myself a scotch guy, but it appears I've been trying the wrong scotch. Very smooth and easy to sip.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
My wife really enjoyed this one; she loved the sweet caramel notes.
 
Kathleen
Kathleen,
I am bit of a Scotch newbie only trying Glenlivet and Chivas before this. I thought it was smooth and I enjoyed the slightly spicy taste. I look forward the trying more and comparing this to others.
 
Deborah
Deborah,
The smoke and sherry really came out for me rather than the big caramel and pepper that I was expecting. This one is ok, but I won't be buying a bottle.
 
Chuck
Chuck,
Caramel and almond on the nose. Dried fruit in the mouth. Pleasant heat and black pepper finish. A good if not particularly memorable dram.
 
Christa
Christa,
This came in my welcome box and it's not for me.
 
Roxann
Roxann,
I was timid at tasting this one because it had a definite scotch smell, the caramel and vanilla smoothed out the bitter bite and then the smokiness came thru. Nice sipping scotch for sure!
 
Katherine
Katherine,
Not as much caramel flavor as I would like. Heavy on pepper notes.
 
Dan
Dan,
Creamy butterscotch mouthfeel with lots of sherry character. A little note of fruit and spice. Surprisingly smooth for just ten years old. Like a baby Macallan!
 
Ross
Ross,
Had a very playful start and a nice intense finish.
 
Shelly
Shelly,
My favorite of the 3. Liked the honey and caramel flavors. Nice finish without being harsh.
 
Kay
Kay,
Surprisingly approachable and an easy drink for a 10 year old scotch. Round caramel mouthfeel with the right amount of peppery spice. Sherry notes provide a nice fruity backdrop for the sharper notes. It's a great starting point for those who are curious about scotch as well as being a more casual, easy-sipper for the seasoned scotch enthusiasts.
 
Michael
Michael,
I personally couldn't stand it . It may be a good scotch , but I myself cannot stand or stomach scotch. I love my bourbons , american wiskeys and Canadian wiskeys.
 
Steven
Steven,
Strong Sherry profile.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Awful front end. Finishes better.
 
Christine
Christine,
Pretty freakin good, mate. Drink up.
 
arne
arne,
first time consciously tasting a scotch. the sherry was very prominent, and I liked the subtle smokiness of it
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
I tried this neat first. The pepper flavor is just too prominent, not a fan of this Scotch. That said, it mixed very well with Mt. Dew Ice, the spices meeting the extreme sweet are splendid.
 
Adam
Adam,
This came as a sample in my Welcome Box. Up to this point I hadn't tried a scotch I actually liked so my expectations weren't that high for this. Boy was I surprised! This was the first scotch that I actually enjoyed. It had a sweet smell with a hint of smokiness. The taste was spicy with caramel. I may have to make this the first bottle of scotch I actually buy.
 
Nerisah
Nerisah,
Spicy taste but decent
 
Juan
Juan,
Nice and smooth, ok overall
 
Julia
Julia,
Spicy....but good spicy....would make a nice "sipper".
 
Paul
Paul,
Very good, in my opinion, for a 10 year scotch. The aroma of caramel and vanilla is inviting and the taste is smooth. Will definitely add this to my collection.
 
Liana
Liana,
I’m whiskey over scotch pretty much every time. This
 
Dave
Dave,
I’ll admit... I like a little whiskey with my seawater... lol... To me, Tamdhu is Ardbeg or Laphroaig lite. That’s not to say it’s bad - because it’s actually good. It’s nice and smooth with a taste of caramel and a finish with a hint of peat. My fiancee preferred it to the smokier, peatier Islays that I like. If you’re worried about how you might like a peaty scotch, this is a good “gateway”.
 
Kaitlin
Kaitlin,
Tamdhu made me finally understand why people sit around and sip scotch. Fruity without being sweet and a nice smooth finish. Definitely a keeper!
 
Alan
Alan,
Bleh
 
Jami
Jami,
It’s good.
 
Lou
Lou,
Enjoyed this but still not full-bodied like the Scotch I love. Wouldn't turn it down but don't think I would go out of my way to buy it.
 
Kristina
Kristina,
A bit too peaty for my tastes, but my husband really liked it. I thought with longer aging it would be sweeter but I’m new to this so maybe not?
 
Thomas
Thomas,
It’s sooooo smooth. Not a really scotchy scotch. Pretty palatable for almost anyone. Very approachable. Worth trying.
 
Alicia
Alicia,
Not for me
 
Lisa
Lisa,
I usually don't care much for scotch, but this one knocked my socks off! Not too much smokiness, a real pleasure to drink.
 
Catherine
Catherine,
I did not like the after taste
 
Elisa
Elisa,
Very smooth, even a non scotch drinker would enjoy this on ice
 
Bill
Bill,
I have never been a Scotch drinker but I can say this was a wonderful product. Very smooth.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Nice color and aroma. Light vanilla. It has a very smooth taste, but not much to it. I did like that it didn’t have the strong peaty taste. It burned on the swallow. Won’t be on my purchase list
 
Stephanie
Stephanie,
This scotch is smokey, smooth and has decent flavor, but I was expecting more. I typically drink pretty average scotch, Walker Red or Black is my go-to. I was expecting to be wowed and was just satisfied. It was good but a little disappointing for the price.
 
Steven
Steven,
It had a great taste it was smooth I really enjoyed it. it is relaxing it’s great over the rocks
 
Teresa
Teresa,
Loved the peat smokiness and smoothness. Thought this would make a nice introduction to a peated single malt
 
Kevin
Kevin,
I am not a fan of smokey whiskies. This is one that I will not be buying to put in my home bar.
 
Salvatore
Salvatore,
For a scotch it is very smooth.
 
Chad
Chad,
Not a fan of scotch but this was perfect! Comparable to a sweet bourbon.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This was the my fav of the box. Smooth, smokey, spicey, easy finish. Nice sippin!
 
Sonali
Sonali,
We both forgot to have a chat with each other as we didn't try this one together. We thought it was ok, but neither one of us found it memorable. We agreed that we would both drink it, but wouldn't keep it in our home bar.
 
JOE
JOE,
VERY FINE. I GAVE THIS AS A BIRTHDAY GIFT. MY FRIEND WENT CRAZY. HE LOVED IT. IT HAS BECOME HIS NUMBER 1. IT HAS BECOME MY #2.
 
Rory
Rory,
Smoky w some spice at the end... will join my home bar.
 
Marc
Marc,
Smooth beginning, great smoky after tones, smooth finish. Definitely would buy a bottle for my collection.
 
Moneca
Moneca,
This was was my favorite from the welcome box. It was light and smooth. There was a hint of spice as well. Very enjoyable. Considering this for my home bar.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Strong caramel rush with a nice medium finish. Excellent with a smooth overall feel.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Nice caramel sweetness up front. Spicy from beginning to end but not overwhelming.
 
Nichole
Nichole,
It was hard to get any flavor other than butterscotch cough syrup.
 
Stephanie
Stephanie,
Smooth and nice to drink strait. Doesn't have the complexity of some scotch though. More like a burbon
 
Troy
Troy,
Very smooth, very mild, very drinkable neat. Lacks defining characteristics but good overall.
 
Evan
Evan,
Strongest nose of the three. Dark cherries and sherry come through strong, but smell misleads as it is so soft and smooth to taste. Smokey vanilla lingers.
 
MYCHELE
MYCHELE,
Hands down the best of the three from the initial tasting.
 
Jennie
Jennie,
Enjoyable smell and taste.
 
Susan
Susan,
Left an odd after taste, almost a dirty, earthy taste.
 
Brian
Brian,
Fantastic smell and taste to match.
 
Amy
Amy,
Very nice for a 10-year. Smooth, with just a note of smoke.
 
Gerard
Gerard,
Caramel forward with a nice, smooth finish. Would make for a great daily scotch
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Smooth. Easy to drink.
 
Devin
Devin,
Overwhelming flavor, just not my preference.
 
MATTHEW
MATTHEW,
Light and week mouth feel. muted flavors with over whelming Carmel to start
 
Adam
Adam,
Chocolate on the nose with wood smoke & honey on the finish.
 
William
William,
Nice mild vanilla smell, mild taste goes down smooth. Touch of Carmel I would recommend and possibly by a botttle
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Very tasty
 
Calvin
Calvin,
Easy as others in the box. Nothing stands out, except it smells like tequila to me. But that is me. Hate to ding something overall, just because I didn't like it.
 
Brita
Brita,
I love the sherry finish!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Nice sherry finished single malt.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Caramel and sherry forward nose and taste. Smooth with a little heat.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
A bit medicine-y of a smell, but tastes nice. A bit fruity, some vanilla, maybe cinnamon? I like sherry, but this isn't the heaviest sherry.
 
Steve
Steve,
This one didn't work for me. Compared to others in the box, we found this nearly undrinkable.
 
Braxton
Braxton,
I liked the taste and aroma of this 10 year old. It goes down really smooth and has a unique flavor.
 
Ty
Ty,
Impressively good for a 10 year old non-peated scotch. My favorite entry level sherried scotch. It is much better than Aberlour 12 or Dalmore 12 in my opinion.
 
Charles
Charles,
I liked the bitter chocolate taste, but not really liking it's smoky flavor. Not sure what they smoked for the flavor, but it ruined the taste.
 
Jason
Jason,
A very good, enjoyable sharing whisky, but also can be enjoyed alone to relax. One that every bar should have!
 
Brad
Brad,
Good taste, not a lasting finish but more than other young scotches. Recommended for new scotch drinkers.

One of my latest favs. Smooth with just a hint of peat. Great balance.

Very good S: caramel raisin T:light smoke chocolate cherry sweet

Great Scotch. Very light on the peat but still present with caramel and fruit notes present. Will add to the bar.

Incredible Scotch. Smooth finish and outstanding Carmel flavor notes that's present throughout.
