29th August, 2017 by Annie Hayes

Tamdhu 50 Year Old

Price: £16,000 (US$)
Ian Macleod Distillers celebrated the 120th anniversary of its Speyside distillery Tamdhu with the launch of a 50-year-old single malt, single cask whisky – the brand’s oldest bottling to date.

Aged in a first fill European oak Sherry butt, it is said to have a flavour of cloves, liquorice, espresso and baked apples, with a “lingering finish” of cocoa, ginger, walnuts and maple syrup.

Each decanter is housed in a solid stained oak cannister featuring Hamilton & Inches hallmarked sterling silver. The pack’s design also depicts the location of Tamdhu Distillery on the Spey River, its Victorian train station and Sherry casks.
