  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Prefer to dilute the whisky to around 48 to 50%. The impressions refer to the whisky diluted with water. All in all a sweet sherry matured whisky, very nicely rounded.

      Brazil nuts, cotton candy, vanilla, marzipan and cinnamon, with orange and citrus notes, toffee.
    • Taste

      Very sweet and creamy to begin with. Orange, toffee, citrus, vanilla, strawberries, freshly baked cookies.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Oak spice, dark chocolate, in interplay with the sweetness. Bitter orange jam remains, the nuts are back and espresso. Warm and long.

    (TASTED BLIND)
    NOSE: Vanilla, coconut liqueur, old mahogany cupboard, dried banana, marzipan. Rich nose. (89-90p).
    TASTE: The arrival is both sweet and astringent. On the mid palate black tea, old oak, dried fruits, raisins, astringency and acidity. Very concentrated. (91p).
    FINISH: Raisins, astringency, acidity and some wood spice. Long. (89-90p).
    OVERALL: Very concentrated, flavourful, astringent and powerful. Total score 90 points.

    Tamdhu is, in my opinion, incredibly underrated. This bottling proves this one more time.
    Tolerates a little water, but I recommend adding a maximum of 10%

    The whisky remains somewhat closed. Even with a little water, it stays fairly dense. But it is a real powerhouse. Even with some water in it.
    • Nose
      Alcoholic, lots of pepper, coffee, gingerbread with butter, orange
    • Taste
      Lots of sherry, wood, vanilla, orange
    • Finish
      Wood tannins, with a dry, somewhat bitterness, long, apple, lots of spices, reminds me of Christmas spices, lots of power.

  10. Chris_V_Swan scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Tamdhu has increasingly convinced me since the then new 10-year-old bottling.
    "The Spirit of Enlightenment" was written on the bottle.
    Since I'm a big fan of the Enlightenment, this distillery has been a MUST since then.
    • Nose
      86 86
      NAS: this one seems young.
      Nice sweet characteristic with strawberries, red grape juice, white grape juice and sweet snap cherries.
      The alcohol is relatively well integrated.
      The alcohol is already noticeable, but gives a nice counterpoint to the sweet basic character.
    • Taste
      87 87
      A solid body, a little water is good for him. But it doesn't have to be.
      Very sweet and also a bit spicy.
      I would characterize the Oloroso barrels as largely first-fill, but that's purely speculative.
      The batch strength differs significantly from the agestatement bottlings.
      Wilder, sweeter, less wood emphasis.
      I like him.
      A few more years of aging and this whisky would have been an epiphany.
    • Finish
      86 86
      long and sweet.
      Mostly strawberries remain and a pinch of pepper.
      Doesn't burn.
