Historically used for blending, Tamdhu flies under the radar of many scotch aficionados. But this underappreciated Speyside whisky compares well with more famous sherry bombs by offering a sweet, savory, slightly funky depth. At first sniff, Tamdhu seems like it might knock you out with one blow—but this gentle giant is a lover, not a fighter. Viscous and meaty, this cask-strength stunner reveals dried fruit, dark chocolate ganache, ginger spice, and saline minerality, thundering softly into a long finish. Ian Macleod Distillers revived Tamdhu, and their pledge to bring Rosebank back to life excites us to rediscover more top-quality whisky with a distinct identity. —Susannah Skiver Barton







Tamdhu Batch Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky...$77.99

Batch #2
58.5% ABV
A Tamdhu for the devoted malt fan, this magnificent edition is bottled un-chillfiltered at natural colour and high strength. Each batch is unique and varies slightly in style and intensity.

As with every bottle of Tamdhu, once distilled it is matured exclusively in hand-selected sherry oak casks. Our oak is amongst the finest in the industry, with a high proportion being first-fill and teeming with flavour.

Finally, patience is required to allow these fine casks to do their work, giving Tamdhu its deep colour and exquisite quality.
