N: Potent whisky from two bourbon casks. Blowing off the surface ethanol from my glass instantly released the orange & lemon oils - now we are in business!


T: This is more like it - [light-ish] honeyed, glassy, clean, porridge malt-cream. It travels on at a relaxed pace with resinous activity.


F: It behaves just-so, slowing to a calming & pleasing 'aah'.


C: This was a real treat to finish. I say finish, I couldn’t resist the Pot Still’s ‘weekly special’ - also a Tamdhu for a mere £2.25. Blog

Fresh out of the bottle and without water the nose was a touch monodimensional and closed. Quite spirity with hints of sweet fruits only lurking in the background. With a fair few drops of water and ten minutes in the glass, the whole profile blossomed, letting through lots of ripe orchard fruits whilst subduing the edgy spirit. Apple strudel and cream emerged a few minutes later, alongside some well-integrated oak, and a hint of damp, dunnage warehouses. A further five minutes brought through more grassy notes. A lovely nose then, but only with time and water! The palate had a nice balance of sweet fruits (this time with some sour-ish old-fashioned boiled fruit sweets in the mix) and spicy cinnamon, again needing water to bring complexity and balance. The finish was the only slight disappointment, with a drying, metallic edge slightly spoiling the lingering creamy fruits.

  • Nez: Frais, végétal, limite herbacé, presque mentholé et piquant. De la vanille poivrée. De la poussière boisée après aération.
  • Bouche: Épicée, poivrée, et sèche. Les épices explosent dans tous les sens.
  • Finale: Des épices exotiques, du gingembre, de la pomme vanillée. Sécheresse globale.
  • Verdict: Un Tamdhu "montagnes russes", particulièrement épicé.
