Tamdhu Batch Strength 003It seems that Tamdhu Batch Strength 003 which was launched in February this year may be worth having a look at, as the latest expression in the Tamdhu Batch Strength series has impressed the folks at both the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) and the International Spirits Challenge (ISC), picking up gold medals at each competition.

The stringent judging processes for both competitions saw Tamdhu Batch Strength 003 blind tasted by an esteemed panels of industry judges.
