22 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.06 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A true sherry monster, violent and merciless, young, of course, but 9 years of aging were not in vain, it is not so primitive and one-dimensional, there is some picture of development, differently it appears before us in flavor, taste and aftertaste without breaking, however , the unity of perception; density and power, of course, beyond, but drinking, without distorting the water, is quite comfortable; in general - very good.
    • Nose
      An open, raw, crushed sodden grapes, raisins, raisin water, furniture varnish, spicy wood, sandalwood, a box for cigars, tobacco for hookah.
    • Taste
      Powerful, oily, enveloping, knocking down with a double blow of spicy, astringent oak and raisin-dried fruit sherry; resin, varnish, red pepper, burnt biscuits.
    • Finish
      Spicy, sour, burnt rusks, burnt sugar, leavard, cola, velvet beer, raisin water in the background, homemade, slightly sour pasta.

  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!

    Very wild, young, but also interesting Tamdhu. Nevertheless, even with water too much alcohol in the mouth and nose, the tea likes.

  10. emptycask scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Nose:

    Quite fresh with Raisins, citrus peal, cold black tea and some anise.

    Taste:

    Oily mouth feel, powerful arrival, pure chocolate, some anise, some honey and sort of bitter. The wood seems fresh but it has a pungent bitter note to it, or maybe a bitter nuttiness. Not much else going on here for me. Quite one dimensional but does the job.

    Finish.

    reasonable of length, but I expected more..
