Tamdhu releases the next instalment of their Cask Strength series, Tamdhu Batch Strength 6, and it is an absolutely delicious big Oloroso sherried dram.

Tamdhu Batch Strength 6Tamdhu Batch Strength 6 in  the latest instalment in Tamdhu's big sherried cask strength series.

Tamdhu is the only single malt Scotch whisky to exclusively mature all its whisky in the Oloroso sherry seasoned casks from start to finish and this sixth batch of their cask strength series is no different, with a high proportion of the contributing casks in this release being First-Fill Oloroso sherry casks, this in conjunction with the bottling strength is sure to make for a sherry rich dram.

Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, commented: "The Batch Strength series is one of our most popular releases – and Batch Strength No.006 is sure to appeal to our fans old and new. The high proportion of first-fill Oloroso sherry casks give this whisky a rich, complex taste and long, rewarding finish."

Tamdhu Batch Strength 6 follows in the footsteps of a series that’s no stranger to success, Batch Strength No. 005 won ‘Gold’ at The Spirits Business Luxury Masters in 2020. Its well-decorated predecessor, Batch No. 004, scooped a ‘Gold’ award in the Scotch Speyside, No Age Statement category at the World Whiskies Awards in 2020, a ‘Gold’ at The Scotch Whisky Masters and a ‘Double Gold’ at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Tamdhu Batch Strength No. 006 has been bottled at its natural cask strength of 56.8% ABV and has a RRP of £79.99 and you will find it available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, Amazon and Master of Malt

Tamdhu Batch Strength 6 Review

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A deliciously rich mix of vanilla, honey, sherried soaked sultana and raisin fruitcake with some orange and lemon adding to the fruitiness, a hint of toasted almond, a little ginger and some mild spicy treacle toffee.

Taste: A rich sweet sherried fruit delivery, the delicious sherried fruit - raisins, sultanas and cherries are joined by some plum, a touch of mildly zesty orange, a little nuttiness, a touch of vanilla and behind the fruitiness is a lovely honey, cinnamon and oak spice.

Finish: A deliciously long finish with the burnt raisins and sultanas hanging in there for an age, some cinnamon and ginger hangs in there too, some lingering treacle toffee and mildly drying oak at the end.

Comment: An absolutely delicious big Oloroso sherried dram, a pleasure from nose to finish, some quality sherry casks at play here and the cask strength simply adds to the flavour and pleasure experience. Tamdhu is becoming one to watch for fans of a big sherried dram going by the quality of this, highly recommended.

SMW Whisky Score 93/100
