Tamdhu marks 125 years with single cask whisky
The Tamdhu Dedication Society has selected a limited edition single malt to celebrate the brand’s 125th anniversary.
After a ‘comprehensive’ tasting with input from Dedication Society members and Tamdhu distillery manager Sandy McIntyre, Single Cask No: 5982 was picked to be bottled for the milestone occasion.
The whisky was matured in a first-fill European oak Sherry butt, resulting in a limited run of 640 bottles.
McIntyre said: “For our 125th anniversary, it was imperative that we consulted our most devout fans to bottle a single cask that celebrates Tamdhu’s rich history, and toasts to its exciting future.
“The result, after much deliberation, is this Dedication Society bottling. As a whisky, it embodies all that is good about our distillation style and our dedication to full Sherry maturation.”
Bottled at 55.4% ABV, the whisky will retail for RRP £349 (€406) per bottle. Tamdhu Dedication Society Single Cask 2003 can only be purchased online from tamdhu.com.
Distilled on 21 November 2003, the whisky’s tasting notes include vanilla aromas, stewed apples and liquorice. The palate is said to be full and balanced, with spiced fruit loaf, plum jam and dark chocolate. The finish offers dried fruits, soft spice, and Sherry notes.
Tamdhu is owned by Ian Macleod Distillers. In June, the brand released 600 bottles of an 18-year-old single cask whisky in China travel retail.
Last year, the Tamdhu unveiled the sixth whisky in its Batch Strength series.
