    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Fruity sherry notes caress my nose tip. The high-potency alcohol content (58.5%) causes a slight cooling, but is well integrated overall. Sweet cherries, raspberries, wild berries and plums are dominant. The fruity-sweet notes are joined by nutty aromas, vanilla, dark forest honey, hints of baked pancakes and first signs of spicy oak. So far, the Tamdhu makes a fruity-fresh and pleasant multi-layered impression without being overstrained.
    • Taste
      Silky soft, the Tamdhu wets the entire mouth before the high alcohol content makes for a strong onset. On the tip of the tongue, a slight tingling sets in, while sweet sherry flavors run smoothly along the cheeks. Red groats, baked apples, raisins, plums and dark forest honey dominate the flavor. Christmas spices, caramel, walnuts and spicy oak notes complement the beautiful taste profile, which is still more on the fruity-fresh side settled. With the help of a few drops of water, the Tamdhu regains its sweetness and fruitiness without losing any noticeable strength. Thanks to the cask strength you can experiment very well with water. The palate already creates a subtle bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium long, intense and warming. At the beginning of the finish, a light pepperiness briefly flashes before the fruity sweet sherry notes gradually fade away. Spicy oak notes, a hint of vanilla / caramel and spices / herbs are gaining dominance. Finally, a subtle dryness and bitterness on the palate.

    Who likes the Aberlour A'Bunadh, will love the Tamdhu - provided you like sweetness, sherry, honey, elegance. The price-performance ratio is excellent.
    • Nose
      First of all, the really great dark copper color of this undyed and not cool filtered whisky in batch strength delights. The scent of sherry, baked apples, forest soil rises after a summer rain, dark plums. Then a pleasant mint freshness comes in.
      With a few drops of water , the Tamdhu becomes full sweet. Honey, plums, sherry. Quite incredible.
    • Taste
      Comes very sweet and supple in the mouth. Here then lead the baking flavors, the sherry and honey notes a beautiful three-way conversation. Then mix in the ripe plums and herbs, which were for a good time on the wet weather forest floor. And the alcohol, the mint? Yes, in the background, then getting stronger, then stepping discreetly into the background. Great. Sweet, full, strong, ripe. With a little water: The characteristic goes back to sweetness. Honey, sherry, plums. Very great, full mouthfeel. Thick, caramel, almost like whisky liqueur. But you realize the power behind it.
    • Finish
      The honey sweetness with sherry and plum base remains in the end, too. Cinnamon is added, a nice spiciness. Wonderfully balanced, the Tamdhu remains present for a long time. With a little water: A nice spiciness now complements the sweetness. For me, these are earthy dead notes, some may think of delicate oak tones. Anyway, nice, round, elegant.
