  2. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    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

  3. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    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.

  4. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Fresh, vegetal, herbaceous, almost minty and spicy. Pepper vanilla. Woody dust after aeration. Palate: Spicy, peppery, and dry. The spices explode in all directions. Finale: Exotic spices, ginger, vanilla apple. Global drought. Verdict: A Tamdhu "roller coaster", particularly spicy.
