Whisky Reviews for Tamdhu 1998 V&M

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.38 points

  1. Whisk(e)yCharlie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Lots of complexity. To me, straddles the line between Single Malt and Bourbon brilliantly.
    • Nose
      Very woody. Cream. Recalls an SMWS bottling - perhaps 50.102, but not 100% sure. The delicate interplay of wood, cream, and old malt is wonderful.

      A second nosing shows more as old/expensive Bourbon - either a Barterhouse or Parker's Heritage were the first points of reference to surface.

      The more I nosed it, the more it trended towards Bourbon (must have been an active cask), particularly older/more heavily oaked Bourbons.
    • Taste
      Follows the nose at first with a Bourbon lead. But subtler. Also plenty of spice. Cinnamon. Maybe some cola. The malt notes and malt complexity grow if I chew the dram: malt, golden raisin, and a slight rubbery note.
    • Finish
      At first, a brief tartness - almost like Shock Tarts. This only came up on the first sip.

      Subsequently: Bourbon, wood, vanilla, cream. The faint rubberiness from the palate reappears, again mildly. Turns grassy and vegetal in its dying notes.
