  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    The nose is expressive which is always a good sign in my view.
    on the nose it smells like a really creamy light bourbon, cedar wood, pine nuts, a bag of fresh sawdust, yellow plum and a little mango.
    Neat this has some depth, wow quite syrupy, a fight between some slightly bitter and more sweet white fruits.
    There is possibly a hint of peat, but basically this is a basket of stewed fruit and love it.
    Lets see what a little water does.
    Well water has released some fruit pastille sweetness and a nice spice note.
    A pepper note appears on the finish and the fruit lingers.
    This is what whisky base is good for, many times I try whisky with 93/94/95 point averages and my score is the 80's the opposite is true here, this has an 85 point average yet I think it is a 90 pointer minimum :)
    For the right price I would definitely buy a bottle of this

    I really like it, something different, the fruits are not overly strong in the mouth, but you can find different if you take your time.
    • Nose
      Dirty red apple, exciting, thyme, sour, pineapple, marzipan and lime, some vanilla and basil, herbal honey, banana, an interesting mixture that makes you want more
    • Taste
      Pear, apple, very pleasant, the beautiful herbal honey again, pecans, some fine pepper, almonds, mango, toffee and some orange, grapefruit, spicy oak, some bitter malt to the rear
    • Finish
      Long, orange peel, caramel, some pepper, getting drier

      Honey, mango and spicy spices

      Long, warming, pepper and sweet fruit

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Marzipan, orange, caramel, malt, vanilla, pine needles, basil and a little glue. 
    • Taste
      Bitter almond, orange, caramel, pecan nut, sweet & sour sauce and some pepper. Based on my experience with Tamdhu I expected a drop of water to unleash the cream, but instead it releases an Edradour-like puke note.
    • Finish
      Brazil nut, orange, caramel and pepper.

    Whisky Doris Tamdhu 25 years (1984 to 2010) Distilled: 1984/10/12 Bottled: 2010/7/2 Cask No: 2834 It is a Sample bottle that comes with various purchases. Immediately after pouring it feels spicy and scallion fragrant and alcoholic feeling strong. However, with the passage of time a sweet scent of wheat and fragrance like a flower began to appear, and when it calmed down, a green apple faced her face. When you put it in your mouth, it is quite rich and sweet like a solid honey spreads out, but the green apple gradually comes out and the mouth refreshes. The lingering finish is dry, but the fragrance and sweetness of the green apple remain fluffy. Although it may be cheaply transmitted in this way, there was a feeling like fanta apple (laugh) ※ It is the first time to write tasting comments tightly, is this even OK? It is all exciting because everyone is an amazing person. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=1154

    Tamdhu 25 yo 1984 (50,1%, Whisky-Doris 2010, refill hogshead #2834, 270 btl.)

    Nose: starts malty and very rubbery, with cereal grains and porridge. I can’t really appreciate this rubbery side, but it’s something I’ve come to expect from Tamdhu so it’s not a specific problem of this expression. After a few moments, it develops on fruit compote (apples, oranges) and big herbal notes (mint / verbena tea, ginger, a little nutmeg). Hints of pine resin and wax with a soapy edge. Mouth: in line with the nose: a fruity / malty centre with oranges, many pears, nutmeg and ginger. Pine wood and liquorice root. Quite herbal towards the finish. Finish: orange marmalade, a little dark chocolate and slightly bitter cloves.

    I should probably add that I’ve rarely been impressed by a Tamdhu so far – it doesn’t seem to be my style. This 25 year-old is very expressive though, with a big emphasis on herbal notes and spices. Available from Whisky-Doris (Germany) for € 95.

    Score: 81/100
