Tamdhu 120th Anniversary Single Cask

30th April 2018
Tamdhu release distillery exclusive single cask bottling to mark 120th Anniversary.

Tamdhu 120th Anniversary Single Cask No. 7389Tamdhu distillery has announced the release of a special distillery exclusive single cask bottling to mark its 120th anniversary.

The deeply rich looking Tamdhu 120th Anniversary Single Cask bottling was selected by the 15-strong Tamdhu distillery team. They choose Single Cask No. 7389, a European oak first-fill sherry butt.

To find the cask best suited to mark the 120th anniversary, nine possible casks were selected with a range of ages and cask types, including European and American sherry oak, and blind-tasted by the distillery team.

As you could well imagine, the distillery team had a lot of fun nosing and tasting the nine samples and voting for their favourites. The final top three were then selected for a blind nosing and tasting and ranked by each of the team members to agree on the winning cask.

The cask they choose to mark the 120th anniversary was distilled on 12th December 2002, you will be pleased to hear that its very deep dark colour is natural and comes from the 15 years the whisky spent maturing in the first-fill sherry cask in Tamdhu's traditional dunnage Warehouse Number Five. Non chill-filtered and bottled at 59.3% ABV this is a limited release of 603 bottles.

Tamdhu 120 Anniversary Single Cask Distillery Team Edition has a RRP 250 and is available exclusively from the Tamdhu distillery web site www.tamdhu.com. You will also find the current Tamdhu whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
