Tamdhu Makes It 3-In-A-Row For At The WWA 2021

4th March 2021
Tamdhu has made it 3 wins in a row for its single cask expressions at the World Whiskies Awards 2021.

WWA 2021 Category Winner in the Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch category - Tamdhu Iain Whitecross Single Cask 5892 Vintage 2003.

Tamdhu has made it 3-In-A-Row with their latest success at the World Whiskies Awards 2021, the Speyside distillery known for its sherry cask matured single malt whisky has scooped a ‘Category Winner’ for the third consecutive year at the prestigious World Whiskies Awards (WWA) 2021.

In the initial results of WWA 2021, the Speyside whisky maker was announced as ‘Category Winner’ in the ‘Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch category’ thanks to their Tamdhu Iain Whitecross Single Cask 5892 Vintage 2003' expression which was selected by Iain Whitecross (Tamdhu Assistant Distillery Manager), it was distilled on the 19th November 2003 when it was filled to a First Fill European Sherry Butt then bottled in March 2020.

No stranger to success, in 2019 Tamdhu scooped the ‘Best Single Cask Single Malt Scotch’ with its Distillery Team Edition, this was then followed in 2020 when their Sandy McIntyre (Distillery Manager) Single Cask expression was awarded the ‘World’s Best Single Cask Single Malt’.

In the wake of this latest announcement, Tamdhu has now been crowned as a WWA Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch Category Winner for the third year running.

Commenting on the accolade, Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, said: "We’re always delighted to see Tamdhu recognised for its quality – especially by such a prestigious and well-respected judging panel.

"Our exclusively sherry cask matured single malts win awards thanks to the craft and commitment of everyone at the distillery. Congratulations to the entire team and a special mention for Iain Whitecross, as it is testament to his service at Tamdhu to win such an important industry accolade with his incredible debut single cask."

The Iain Whitecross Single Cask award winning dram is said to have notes of deep toffee on the nose, accompanied by milk chocolate, hazelnut, peach, and vanilla. On the palate, a wonderful contrast of rich truffle, sharp zesty orange and warming cinnamon. The finish brings crème caramel, soft oak, wine gums and – of course – unstoppable sherry.

Owned by family firm, Ian Macleod Distillers, Tamdhu uses only the best Oloroso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks giving the award-winning single malt its natural, dark amber colour, intense richness on the palate and its deep, long finish.

Tamdhu exclusively matures in sherry seasoned casks, which are crafted in the family cooperages and bodegas of Jerez, Spain for up to 6 years before beginning their journey to Scotland.
