What they say
An independently bottled Tamdhu single malt Scotch whisky, aged in a refill hogshead for 8 years. It was distilled in autumn 2006 and set aside to mature until autumn 2014, when it was then bottled by Douglas Laing for the Provenance range. Honey’d and warming with spice, leading towards notes of red fruit on the finish.
What I say
An independently bottled Tamdhue expression. Like many IB’s this offers me the chance to try Tamdhu not in it’s native (OB) heavuily sherried guise but in a more revealing (likely) refill hogshead. Distilled Autumn 2006 and bottled Autumn 2014 by Douglas Laing as part of their Provenance range.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Very light gold (3/20), medium tears, long, medium legs.
- Nose: Sweet and malty, golden syrup, porridge oats, flapjacks, fruity, apple, peach, apricot, vanilla, white chocolate, a hint of latte coffee?
- Taste: Silky and medium-light bodied initially, malty, creamy, vanilla, ‘milkshake’ perhpas strawberry, crips orchard fruits.
- Finish: Long, vaporous and drying, cream and barley sugars.
A little light, possibly due to maturation in a refill cask? Very milk and vanilla rich.
Don’t take my word for it:
