15th August 2023
Tamdhu unveils Batch 8 in its popular big sherried Batch Strength series.

Tamdhu Batch Strength 8Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky introduces the latest addition to its 'Batch Strength' collection. Unveiled this week, Tamdhu Batch Strength 008 emerges as an unfiltered expression boasting a robust 55.8% ABV, epitomising the brand's steadfast commitment to crafting quality whisky.

Remaining loyal to their time-honoured customs, this iteration matures exclusively in Oloroso sherry seasoned casks sourced from the renowned bodegas of Jerez, Spain. The eighth instalment in this series dares to redefine perfection by meticulously hand-picking each cask, with a notable emphasis on first-fill sherry casks..

The rarity of this wood is said to bestow Tamdhu Batch Strength 008 with a stunning copper radiance and a truly magnificent flavour profile. Tamdhu tells me that upon nosing, deep nutty layers of Spanish oak give way to an enticing aroma of velvety vanilla and slowly melting honeycomb. The initial sip whisks imbibers away to a sun-kissed orchard in summer, where tangy berries waltz harmoniously with candied lemon peel. The experience culminates in Tamdhu's signature sherry oak finish, a lingering elegance enriched with subtle fig notes that linger on the palate.

Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, said: "Batch Strength No. 008 encapsulates our unwavering commitment to crafting exclusively sherry-matured whisky, presenting a captivating deep natural copper hue and a complex flavour profile. With each Oloroso sherry cask carefully hand-selected, this expression delivers an exquisite and nuanced flavour, leaving a memorable and gratifying finish that embodies the essence of Speyside."

Tamdhu has built a legacy dedicated to the finest award-winning sherry-matured whisky and the Batch Strength series has seen success at various prestigious spirits competitions, including last year's release, Batch Strength 007, attaining the Gold Award at the annual San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition.

Tamdhu Batch Strength 008 has a RRP of 87 and will be available f
rom specialist online whisky shops such ass The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop, Master of Malt and Hard To Find Whisky
