You may not recognize this particular distillery but it’s definitely worth a closer look. Tamdhu Distillery (not to be confused with Tamnavulin) sits right on the banks of the Rivery Spey just a bit south of Cardhu Distillery. Until fairly recently (a couple years ago), Tamdhu was not doing too well. The distillery was mothballed in 2009 by then owner Edrington Group and then sold to Ian MacLeod in 2011. In 2013 the brand was relaunched and so far it’s been getting some good attention from whisky drinkers. The Tamdhu 10 year old represents excellent value if you are looking for a good sherried whisky.

Really bright and rich red fruity sherry ness. bubble gum. Duty free perfume shop. Really strong. Dried flowers. Slight bit of pine sap.
Strong fruitiness with slight bubble gum rubbery ness. Full of flavour and really great mouth feel. Spicy like ginger chews.
Dry and spicy with lots of cinnamon and toffee pudding glaze. Ginger chews.
Really nice dram. Would probably always be up for a dram. Amazing value. Strong sweet sherry flavour that is easy to drink and still very flavourful and interesting. A good dram for beginners and seasoned drinkers alike.
