    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 211 bottles from cask no. 2453
    We always find Tamdhu to be a most reliable malt, well made and well matured. This is a good example. It has spent its 22 years in a re-fill American hogshead (so has a deep gold colour), which has retained the distillery character while rounding and smoothing and adding its own nuances. A mild nose, to start with at least; fresh-fruity, with typical Speyside esters (nail varnish remover, vinyl); some sandalwood in the background and an unusual head-clearing property, like a Vik inhaler. When water is added, this becomes tea-tree oil, bay leaves or rhododendron leaves, with traces of dry chocolate. The flavour at full strength is sweet and biscuity, with citric and eucalyptus elements; water brings up the full, oily texture of the whisky and a sweet, fresh taste to start, with traces of coconut, drying in the medium-length finish, via a mouth-tingling phase.

    A bit rocky.  Taste like a weekend in your grandmother's house.
    • Nose
      Soft and fruity. Super Glue. 1970's Ford vinyl interior. Eucalyptus. Beach sand.
    • Taste
      Sweet.  Hot alcohol.  Tea leaves.  Coconut....maybe sun tan lotion? Menthol.  
    • Finish
      Hot and spicy.  White pepper.  More beach sand.
