Tamdhu Batch Strength Single Malt Scotch
PUT CRÈME BRÛLÉE IN YOUR GLASS, ADD A DASH OF SPICE, LIGHT IT ON FIRE.
It's easy to see why this bottle won so many awards. A fine malt with a lot of heat, reminiscent of those beloved, hot American bourbons.
A Tamdhu for the devoted malt fan, Batch Strength 001 is bottled un-chillfiltered at natural colour and at 58.8%. Each batch is unique and varies slightly in style and intensity. As with every bottle of Tamdhu, once distilled it is matured exclusively in hand-selected sherry oak casks. Our oak is the finest in the industry, with a high proportion being first-fill and teeming with flavour. Finally, patience is required to allow these fine casks to do their work, giving Tamdhu its deep colour and exquisite quality.
A CONSORTIUM OF GENTLEMEN
Enthused by the optimism of 1897's Diamond Jubilee, a consortium of merchants and gentlemen of the whisky trade raised today's equivalent of £20 million. Driven to produce the finest whisky in the world, they set out to construct the most advanced distillery yet devised. Having first acquired a unique site on the banks of the River Spey, they enlisted the ingenuity of Charles C Doig Esq - the pre-eminent distillery architect and engineer of the day. Doig insisted upon employing only the most advanced techniques of whisky production, delivering unrivalled consistency and quality. This ensured every drop was as magnificent as the one before.
ONLY THE FINEST SHERRY OAK CASKS
The sherry casks in use today are of the same type insisted upon when the distillery was established in 1897. Only the finest oak holds Tamdhu's spirit. These traditions create a Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky worthy of the name Tamdhu — a spirit the founders would recognise as their own. Sherry casks are absolutely essential for the flavour and colour of Tamdhu. The casks are also phenomenally expensive – but it wasn’t always that way. When Tamdhu began in 1897, sherry casks were somewhat of a bargain. Grant, Dewar and Walker had them shipped to Speyside to hold the precious Tamdhu spirit.
