Tamdhu 10 Year Old Reviews
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.
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.

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.
Great whisky, but I hate the bottle!
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)
