The comeback kid.

Tamdhu, hidden in the Speyside hills of Knockando, started out as a revolutionary distillery in the time of early railroad construction, electricity and industrialisation in Scotland. The 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.

The comeback came slowly, but surely. For quite a few years, the 10 YO was their sole single malt offering. Until this little Sherry bomb, that is. Tamdhu Batch Strength is bottled un-chill filtered at natural color and at lavish 58.8% ABV. Each batch is unique and varies slightly in style and intensity. As with every bottle of Tamdhu, once distilled it is matured exclusively in hand-selected American and European Sherry oak casks.

This is a really robust, full flavored dram, so you better watch out. The casks used are mostly first-fill, which means the Whisky is packed with character. It’s a tribute to the Tamdhu heritage that started all those years ago and a reminder that the future is bright. Damn, we enjoy a good comeback story almost as much as we enjoy a good dram. Luckily, this time, we can have both.

Matthew
Matthew,
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.

Excellent and very smooth!!!!

Gary,
While not smokey, or peaty, the batch strength is something to be appreciated. Should be a standard in the Scotch bar list.

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.

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,
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.
