Tasting Notes

Der deutsche Importeur Whiskymax konnte das Batch No. 1 bereits probieren und hat mir die folgenden (übersetzten) Verkostungsnotizen zugesendet:

  • Geruch: Rote Beeren, Sultaninen, Walnüsse, ein Hauch von Pecannuss, Zitrusfrucht und Eiche, cremige Vanille und Kuchenteig.
  • Geschmack: Kraftvoller, komplexer Ausbruch, fantastisch abgerundet mit Sherry Eiche, Gewürzen und Trockenfrüchten. Beim Verweilen auf dem Gaumen entwickeln sich leichte Fruchtnoten wie Aprikose, Orange und Creme Brulée.
  • Abgang: Reich, biskuitartig und malzig. Toast und Marmelade mit einer verbleibenden, erfreulichen Fruchtigkeit.

Tamdhu shows its strength with new expression

Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has unveiled a new Batch Strength expression to complement the brand’s existing 10 Year Old offering.

Neu in Deutschland: Tamdhu Batch Strength

The special edition Tamdhu Batch Strength is bottled un-chillfiltered at natural colour and high strength. The first of its kind from Tamdhu, the Batch Strength expression remains true to the Victorian optimism of the brand’s founders, upholding their passion to create only the finest single malt.

To achieve the most genuine taste and character, the new expression has been matured in a small number of exceptional, hand-selected, sherry oak casks at Tamdhu Distillery, located in the heart of Speyside. The first batch of this new expression has been bottled at 58.8% alcohol by volume.

Commenting on the new malt, Iain Weir, Marketing Director for Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “We’re extremely excited to be unveiling this new expression. Tamdhu is a brand that we are exceptionally proud of and it’s great to be able to extend the range from our existing award winning 10 Year Old malt”.

He continued: “Our Batch Strength is the purists’ choice and we feel that this hugely satisfying malt is going to be a popular addition to the Tamdhu range. It is the closest you’ll get to sampling a dram of whisky straight from a Tamdhu cask!

Each batch is unique and varies slightly in style and strength but will always capture the complex richness and intensity of sherry cask matured whisky.

Tamdhu is owned by one of Scotland’s leading, independent family-owned distillers, Ian Macleod Distillers. Tamdhu was born on the banks of the River Spey in 1897 – an era when anything seemed possible. When obstacles were there to be overcome, an age of the Can-Dhu- Spirit. Its quality is defined by the hint of peat in its malted barley, the natural Speyside water that is drawn directly from the Tamdhu spring and the 100% exclusive use of only the finest sherry oak casks.

Original Tasting Notes

  • NOSE: Red berries, sultanas, walnuts, hints of pecan, delicate citrus and oak, creamy vanilla, cookie dough.
  • PALATE: Powerful burst of richness, fantastically rounded with sherry oak, spice and dry fruit. Kept on the palate, lighter fruits come to the fore- apricot, orange and crème brulee.
  • FINISH: Rich, biscuity and malty, toast and marmalade with pleasing fruitiness lingering.
