Tamdhu unveils Batch Strength No. 004A new feature on the blog, I am going to start a fairly regular (I am not going to say weekly as there is no guarantee of whiskies available that regularly) round up of some of the recent new Whisky releases on the market.

Tamdhu unveils Batch Strength No. 004

Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has unveiled the fourth annual edition of its multi award-winning Batch Strength series, reflecting Tamdhus commitment to producing only the best sherry cask matured whisky.

Bottled un-chillfiltered at 57.8% ABV, Batch Strength 004 boasts a complex richness, deep intensity and natural colour, having been matured in American and European Oak Oloroso seasoned casks from the cooperages of Jerez in Spains Sherry Triangle.

The scarce wood of the sherry cask bears two great gifts; colour and taste. The deep copper hue of Tamdhu Batch Strength 004 is developed by the cask, nothing more – and each drop owes its rich, complex taste to its Oloroso cask home.
