    Besides the Ultimate cask strength Longmorn's, the Tamdhu's certainly belong to my favorite. The smell, the taste and the recognisability of ingredients, that I leave to each his own judgment. After all, it is a different experience for each of us. Cheers!

  6. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Sweet and sour, initially the sherry influences are not that clear. It needs a bit of time and water to get it more open. With water: Indeed it opens more up with sherry notes. Although there is a little off note in the background.

    Taste:
    Oemph! This one needs water. Without water it is quite a sherry bomb. Loads of sweet raisins, red berry's and other red fuits.

    Body:
    Medium and round

    Finish:
    Medium-long length. There is the obvious sherry influence, but also quite some vanilla and caramel.

    Price:
    Don't know this was a given sample

    Presentation:
    The Ultimate is alway sober and decent.

    Comments:
    I like it quite a bit, but it feels a bit too much 'finished for a finish'.

  10. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I like it! The price/quality is very good. 
    • Nose
      Sweet associated smells, honey, dried fruit (plum, fig), though a bit on rubber too.
    • Taste
      Full bodied, a little hot, mainly on the honeyed barley and fruit. The rubber association stays too.
    • Finish
      Still hot, slightly drying (which is normal), with fruit and ginger.
