Whisky Reviews for Tamdhu 2005 vW

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.11 points

  1. MY MALTS scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very sweet, very tasty, and very spicy .... The sherry keg is very well received ... At least 9 ml. Water to 3 cl. Single Malt ...

  2. OKoster scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    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!

  5. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A good example of why age doesn't always matter. Very tasty.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly gentle for such a high abv. Milk chocolate, toffee and fudge. Butter-y. Loads of vanilla. Cookie dough too.
    • Taste
      The alcohol is more noticeable here, but still not overwhelming. Very sweet arrival with a pinch of pepper. Creamy vanilla with lots of caramel and golden syrup. Some black berries, cherries and a hint of nutmeg. It swims very well.
    • Finish
      More vanilla and caramel with some mild spices. Long.

  7. Xstream scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Similar to #347, but this one is just a bit fruitier and more complex. #347 is more creamy and soapy. I love the more smooth and buttery profile of #347, especially the nose. But this one is more complex and has a more developing finish. Both are great though, but the creamy #347 i just enjoyed a tad more.

  8. Igor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    If you have a sweet tooth - try that, it is excessively sweet. Much too much saccharine for me though.
    • Nose
      Vegetal sweet sap, horseradish, liquorish, box of chocolates, vanilla flavoured Coca-Cola, bourbony parallel/Caribbean rum, sandalwood oil, maple syrup, light dessert note of lemon meringue pie, soufflé. Becomes sweeter, much more sugarcane-y. It reveals wild thorny bushes, heather?, thistle flowers, hay, lacquered wooden surface, rum - distinctly, candied fruit (pineapple, lemon), glazed doughnuts, milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      Intensive, powerful blast of citruses and spices, woody dry note, toasted wood, intense sweetness, cloying almost, sugarcane juice, golden syrup, gooseberry, pear drops. It's a bit watery, semi-watery, yet burning, gingery (sugared ginger), nip of chilli, allspice, nutmeg, orange zest, Fanta Orange, pungent bitter fruit, cough mixture, candy floss.
    • Finish
      Husky, hot, prolonged, more spice comes up, touch of salt (household soda), liquorice sweet, peppery, zesty, lemon peel, nectarine/tangerine, white currants, pear, coconut meat, syrupy-sweet but fiery alcohol burn, bitter herb tea, bitter almonds, oak-bitter, surge of salty warmth.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Even
    though there are quite some creamy notes in this one, compared to the
    earlier casks from this range (which are the creamiest whiskies I've
    ever tasted), in this one the fruit is more prominent. For a whisky over
    60%, its smoothness is absolutely remarkable.
    • Nose
      Red berries, caramel (Wehrter's), toffee, raisin, cocoa, vanilla, pear, orange, cookie and oak. With water a grassy touch as well.
    • Taste
      Creamy vanilla, red berries, caramel, orange, oak, raisin, blueberry, whipped cream and a little eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Caramel, tangerine, vanilla, currants and whipped cream.
