Tamdhu set to
replace their entry level 10 year old
with a new Tamdhu 12 Year Old Oloroso
sherry cask matured single malt.
has unveiled a new Tamdhu 12 Year Old
will replace the existing Tamdhu 10 Year
Old. The new Tamdhu 12 Year Old is
rolling out globally now and is expected
to be available in the UK in 2019.
Benefiting from an extra two years of
maturation, and bottled at the slightly
higher strength of 43% ABV than the 10
Year Old. The new Tamdhu 12 Year Old has been 100% matured
for a full 12 years in a combination of first fill and
refill American and European Oloroso
sherry casks from the cooperages of
Jerez, in Spain’s ‘sherry triangle’. The
result, Tamdhu tell me is "a complex and rich single malt
whisky that delivers a wealth of
complexity, with flavours of cinnamon,
dried fruit, banana and classic sherry
Tamdhu 12 Year Old launches globally
with a new look packaging design, including a new strapline,
‘Only the Best’ and activation, ‘From
Spain to Speyside’; a reference to the
top-quality Spanish Oloroso sherry seasoned
American and European oak casks which give
Tamdhu its distinctive colour and
flavour. The striking amber tones in the
single malt are developed naturally
through contact with the sherry seasoned
casks, which are crafted in the family
cooperages and bodegas of Jerez for up
to 6 years before beginning their
journey to Scotland.
Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery
Manager commented on the new whisky,
"We’re delighted to introduce the new
Tamdhu 12 Year Old as our new entry
"All our whisky at Tamdhu is exclusively
matured in the finest Oloroso sherry oak
casks. The American and European oak
soaks up nearly 35 litres of Oloroso
sherry during the seasoning process in
Jerez, which gives our new Tamdhu 12
Year Old its distinctive flavour and
striking natural colour.
"When you taste a dram of Tamdhu 12 Year
Old, you can really taste the time, care
and expert craftsmanship which has gone
in to creating this incredible whisky.
We hope Tamdhu drinkers around the world
will savour it as much as we do.
"We’re on an exciting journey with
Tamdhu and we remain committed to
bottling only the best."
As I said the Tamdhu 10 will be
disappearing from shelves soon so stock
up now if you are partial to it and the
new Tamdhu 12 should start to appear on
shelves here in the UK from 2019.
You will find the current Tamdhu core
range available from specialist online whisky
retailers such as

Producer's Tasting Notes:
Nose: Rich and enticing; iced cinnamon rolls, orange boiled
sweets, fresh sweet oak with raisins and
a faint hint of mint.
Taste: Silky texture that coats the mouth with banana, berry
jam, malt biscuit and classic sherry oak
Pleasantly long and balanced with ground
spice, dried fruit and soft Scottish
tablet, finally unveiling the merest
whisper of peat smoke.
