Nose

Very deep and dark dried red fruits. There's some charred oak wood along with a plethora of tropical fruit. These are normally all very dominant aromas, but not with this Tamdhu. It's very balanced.

Taste

The raspberry taste is what stands out the most. Also some red fruit, cherry, caramel and fudge. The mouthfeel is bit thin, sort of like a rosé wine. That might normally indicate watery, but that's really not an accurate description.  Thin is the best I can come up with.

Finish

This is the part I like best about this Tamdhu. A bit peppery, lots of raspberry. Sugary and caramel. And best of all, it's very long.

Comments

A lovely whisky, nothing else to add.
