The Tamdhu 18 Year Old opens with citrus and nutty notes, followed by classic sherry tones and a hint of prunes. An idea of rum balls and sultanas gives it a sweet depth, while the oak spice adds a robust structure. The bouquet is voluminous and massively intense.


The first sip reveals the rich fullness of this whisky. A fruity sweetness of red apple dances on the tongue, accompanied by a malty depth and a subtle sweet dryness. The usual sherry notes are present and enhanced by candied apple nuances. The texture is remarkably creamy, but a distinct kick reminds you that this is not a whisky for the faint-hearted. Dark notes of coffee, chocolate and morello cherries add a sensual complexity.


The finish is long, warming and slightly burning, carried by a fruity flavour that lingers on the tongue.


Overall, the Tamdhu 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a truly exquisite choice of sherried whisky. Its smooth texture, wonderfully creamy and extremely intense, is a real treat for the palate. The flavours are overwhelming, but in a positive sense, and offer a sophisticated - unfortunately relatively high priced - taste experience.
