Top reviews for Tamdhu Batch Strength:

— Heavy sweet front with a nice finish. Great with a mild cigar

— As my first batch-strength, I had to learn to bite off smaller sips than with normal Scotch but after that adjustment, I really love this. It has the wonderful mouth texture and smoothness I would expect from a sherry-casked whiskey, and serves as an excellent counterpart to my Macallan 12

— Best Whisky ever tasted - batch 1 better than batch 2 so far.

One of my all-time favorites!

Very rich and nice.

I just had my first dram of Tamdhu Batch Strength Batch number 001. Each batch is different, and this particular one is 58.8% ABV. Just one word. Wow! The first thing to notice is this golden liquid is thick, almost syrupy, with long legs trailing down the side of the glass. But even at 58.5%, the nose is pleasant with hints of berries and nuts. The mouth feel is very warm and inviting. And the finish is freakishly long. I mean, wow! Even after a good 2 minutes I can still sense the tingling fruitiness and warmth down my chest. This gem compares nicely with Macallan 15, and may even be on par with the Rare Cask, which, by the way, I rank also 9/10.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Wonderfully full vanilla and butterscotch aroma. Smaller sips needed for the batch strength. Sherry pepper drops to long vanilla warmth.
 
Christine
Christine,
They're not kidding on the batch strength, whew. Sweet sherry and oak in the flavor, very spicy finish. Had to add a bit of water to actually enjoy the flavor. I enjoyed wafting this one more than drinking it.
 
Ben
Ben,
A bolder scotch, you can taste the oak and sherry
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Great flavors and a good hearty kick! I enjoyed it.
 
Steve
Steve,
Way too strong for my tastes. Had to cut it with a splash of water. Couldn't really taste anything that stood out
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Wonderful buttery aroma but a bit harsh on the tongue to begin. Settles down with sweet notes and finishes with a Smokey, nutty note.
 
Brett
Brett,
Sweet on the nose with a buttery feel, smooth for batch strength, with a light smoke finish.
 
Alan
Alan,
Smooth and sweet definitely a good dram. I will order a bottle.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Moderate smoke/peat. It was smooth for a batch strength.
 
Sabrina
Sabrina,
I little strong for me.
 
Mat
Mat,
A little too in-your-face for my taste, but still a nice, front-of-the-tongue, strong whiskey.
 
Michael
Michael,
Strong but without depth or sufficient flavor. If you want to get drunk by all means drink it - but there are better drams out there for strong and flavorful.
 
Megan
Megan,
Smells of vanilla and butterscotch. Tastes almost too sweet. When we added a drop of water, the vanilla and sherry popped and the sweetness toned down a notch. Didn't notice oak or citrus.
 
Tom
Tom,
I've tried a handful of scotches and this one is phenomenal. The flavor is nice and full, and I feel its a very smooth drink. This is certainly going to become a regular for my bar.
 
Yang
Yang,
Tastes ok. Hints of chocolate, "sherry", they call it. Floral aroma. But so much alcohol... 118 proof is just too much it drowns out the flavor...
 
Howard
Howard,
Nice and smooth
 
Levi
Levi,
I had to cut it with water. Scotch is not as much my thing as bourbon. It is a fine bottle, just not as enjoyable for me as bourbon.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
The amount of rich fruit that comes through with this will blow your socks off. Super sweet and very hot (strong), yet amazingly well balanced.

Wow! Batch strength is delicious

Excellent and very smooth!!!!
 
Gary
Gary,
While not smokey, or peaty, the batch strength is something to be appreciated. Should be a standard in the Scotch bar list.
 
Ty
Ty,
Very good and very robust. It's a little hot to drink neat, and takes some experimenting to figure out how much water to put on it. For my money, the Tamdhu 10 is just as good, more approachable, and much less expensive.
 
David
David,
Very smooth caramel taste
 
Will
Will,
love it
 
Tom
Tom,
First sip bring a lot of caramel and vanilla, with pepper and just a hint of smoke on the finish. Extremely smooth for such a high proof. I only had the tasting sample, but when I buy a bottle I would like to try with a little water or ice
 
Enoch
Enoch,
For cask strength, this is very smooth, fruity, oaky, and with a peppery finish that lasts forever. A very enjoyable glass. A couple of small cubes of ice really opens the aromas on this one.
 
Theodore
Theodore,
Very smooth, sweet, vanilla and fruit. Almost no smoke. Long finish. Just wonderful

Incredibly smooth for 120 proof.
