    A solid entry level 12y oloroso sherry matured scotch whisky at 43% ABV. Not more no less...

      Exactly what one would expect... Nothing fancy, but not bad either!
    • Taste
      85 85
      More dry than sweet. Nuts, caramel, milk chocolate, dried fruits. Could have been more robust, being bottled at a higher ABV.

      Short to medium.

  8. notesofmalt scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Tamdhu 12 years, 43% alc. Original bottling (2021). Ageing: sherry casks

    Nose: Sweet, the sherry aromas are evident. Grapes, almonds and mild orange marmalade, dried apples and banana chips. In addition some cinnamon and sugar cake, in the background a delicate mixture of leather, aniseed and mint.

    Palate: Soft and creamy with a pleasant woody spiciness. Ripe and slightly tart cherries, dried currants and malt. Scones with orange marmalade, again the banana chips and dried apricots. Finally a hint of cinnamon, cardamom, aniseed and cloves.

    Finish: Medium length and pleasantly dry/spicy. Christmas cookies, wood smoke and dark chocolate, minimal wood smoke.

    Conclusion: A really nice single malt whisky with clear sherry aromas, the spices bring a pleasant depth. In addition a good price/performance ratio. Just a few more turns would be nice. 84/100 points (2022)
