Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    • Nose:

      Crunchie bars, Eccles cakes, a touch of rubber, black liquorice, brown sugar, vanilla cream, Victoria sponge, berries and foresty hints – rich earth and damp green leaves.

    • Palate:

      An oily mouthfeel with caramel, pepper and stewed oranges up front, and sherbert and milk chocolate coming in behind.

    • Finish:

      Medium length, with sweet wood turning slowly dry and spicy, with a burst of spiced butter fading to lightly bitter barrel char.

    • Comment:

      A solid and tasty sherry-cask-matured whisky. They’ve balanced the rich first-fill notes with some softer refill flavours to give rich fruit and chocolate as well as some softer creamy notes. I’m not sure about the ‘wisp of smoke’, though.

  • Producer's Notes

    • Nose:

      The softness of vanilla and sugared almonds, balanced by fresh oak and cinnamon.

    • Palate:

      Bursting with fruit and spice - gently yielding to toffee and the richness of sherry oak.

    • Finish:

      Fruit and vanilla linger, becoming pleasantly drying - finally unveiling the merest wisp of peat smoke.

    Bought this off a friend for his birthday from a large established whisky shop. I asked for something like Aberlour which is his usual drink of choice (it's actually not like that at all). The whisky itself wasn't bad to drink but I just couldn't enjoy it. The smell was not to my liking, the nose to me was like rotting fish or cabbage and I couldn't get past it. Stinky and unpleasant and not what I expected at all. Maybe you will like this if you're looking for something extremely pungent and different. Sorry not for me.

    I drink a lot of whisky, so feel suitably qualified to pass comment on this particular one which I bought recently. Throughly disappointed, don't judge a book by its cover. Compared to similar priced options, it has no complexity or depth of flavour. It tastes like whisky so I suppose that's worth a star. It actually tastes cheap which is quite an achievement. Each to their own so others may enjoy but it's not one I will buy again.

    Slightly viscous, but warm feel of caramel. Touch of spice and Speyside fans will enjoy the sherry hints.

    Going off my memory here - I was excited to try this one, but felt it to be a let-down. A nice initial Speyside flavour but had one of the most stunted finishes I've ever encountered. This one literally vanished without a trace on me, almost in a dry and flat manner. For the money, I've had far better scotches in this style.

    Slightly viscous. Vanilla wafers and waffles up front. The lighest touch of pine tar and rubber, followed by a strong pepper. A pleasant medium-length linger hinting of the forest floor before sunrise. Not a sophisticated dram; but something I wouldn't be ashamed to offer to anyone.

    I'm currently enjoying my first glass of this delicious sherried speyside malt. On the nose it reminds me of a hot pancake breakfast. There's a woody smell that's remind me of sweet maple syrup and butter. On the palate I really get the delicious sherried fruit. There is also a nice spice to it. On the nice long finish the sweet fruit dries leaving a pleasant peppery spicy aftertaste. I also get the hint of smoke that the producer mentions. I love single malts that are either heavily peated or heavily sherried. This one does not disappoint. I highly recommend this stuff.

    The most delicious speyside malt wholly (not just finished) in sherry casks and at an amazing natural colour

    Wow - one of the few if not only Speyside 10 year olds that are fully matured in sherry casks - most of the others just finish them off.!!! Great nose but oh so drinkable too. My brother and I managed most of the bottle in one session. Looking forward to a 12 or 15 now.

    I must agree with Robs review of this dram when comparing it to the glendronach 12 years. Yet, what I will say is that this whisky is pleasant and mellow, yet lacking any character or bite for my liking.

    I fancied a sherry cask Speyside, so I bought this along with a 12yo Glendronach. Last evening, I had some of each. This Tamdhu was pleasant enough and was exactly like it said on the box (see producer''s notes) but the Glendronch, for virtually the same price, was far superior. For me, the Tamdhu is overpriced - I wonder how much extra we''re paying for the unnecessarily fancy bottle which is poor man''s Hibiki, really. Here''s an idea - put the same 10yo in a ''normal'' bottle and sell it for less or increase the proof and make it non-chillfiltered and keep it at the price.

    An excellent Speyside malt. I''m a big fan of Sherry-cask malts, & this one didn''t disappoint.

    Quite excellent as it's been 100% matured in sherry casks. It's not been coloured up like many other malts are so it's all natural.

    Typical Speyside whisky. Easy drinking and smooth. I just kept going back for more. It's the first bottle of Tamdhu I've tried and will certainly buy another, and yes it is a nice glass bottle.

    Tamdhu is only ever matured in sherry casks. A beautiful bottle too! An excellent single malt from Speyside. Smooth, mellow with a natural golden colour.

    A wonderful whisky, very well made and classic Speyside from sherry casks. I will buy again. Mrs N loves the bottle and has claimed it. ( when empty)
