Review #556. Tamdhu Batch Strength Batch 1

Review #556 | /r/Scotch Review #198 – Tamdhu Batch Strength Batch 1

The Schtick: This is Tamdhu released at cask strength, but without an age statement.


Distiller: Tamdhu

Bottler: Tamdhu

ABV: 58.8% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Sample


Nose: Caramel, toffee, very nutty sherry. There is soke fruity essence like fig and blackberry but the nutty peanut brittle is really dominant in a savory sweet way here.

Taste: Thin to medium mouthfeel – surprising given the proof. Some heat. Nutty, faintly sour grapes, toffee and caramel. Fruitier than the nose but still clearly very nutty sherry. Nice peanut brittle note here also.

Finish: Medium length with some heat. Sweet toffee.

Overall: I really like this profile but found the palate a bit thin and a bit too much heat throughout. Its a nice unique profile but the heat is really what keeps it from climbing higher.

Thanks for reading!
