Tamdhu 10 Year Old 2002 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in refill hogsheads and bottled 2013 by Douglas Laing & Co. for the Single Minded series.
Attractively sweet and honey’d on the nose carrying a citric fresh quality plus vanilla & spiced toffee. The palate is mouth coatingly sweet with butterscotch and spiced macerated raisins. This all runs to a long and warmingly spiced finish, still honey’d plus more raisins and vanilla.
Tamdhu Single Malt Whiskey
Tamdhu Distillery was founded in Speyside in 1896 and in production the following year. Designed by Charles Doig this distillery was originally equipped with two stills that were increased to four in 1972 and then six in 1975 in order to cope with the ever increasing demand for Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark blends of scotch to which Tamdhu was a major contributor. When the nearby railway station closed in 1965 the ticket office was subsequently converted into the Tamdhu Distillery visitor. But the visitor centre closed and then the distillery itself in March 2010 and with it the last working Saladin malting boxes in Scotland. A year later and Ian Macleod Distillers purchased Tamdhu Distillery and re-opened it in 2012. Single malts include Tamdhu 10 Year Old and Batch Strength.
