Tamdhu Single Cask Distillery Team Edition Review

Tamdhu Single Cask Distillery Team Edition This Single Cask Distillery Team Edition was bottled to celebrate the 120th Anniversary of the distillery and was selected by the 15 strong distillery team.

Like all Tamdhu distillery bottlings this was matured in an ex Oloroso sherry cask and is one of 630 bottles.

I really wasn't sure if I would like this, I can sometimes (understatement of the year) not enjoy ex-sherry drams so I'm always a little apprehensive.

This has a lot of really tasty notes to it, dried apricots and juicy dates, some really complex hugely tasty and very very drinkable.

The only issue is the price! I get that this is a limited edition single cask celebrating the 120th anniversary but £250 a bottle is way too much for this bottle, especially for a drinker.

Available to buy at the distillery or online on the Tamdhu Website
