Award-winning Tamdhu airport exclusive now available to buy online
Tamdhu Single Malt Scotch Whisky has announced that its award-winning Edinburgh Airport European Sherry Oak Single Cask Whisky will be available to buy online, via the Tamdhu website.
Amid consumer demand following global travel disruptions, the Speyside distiller decided to ring fence the remaining bottles for online purchase, giving non-travellers, and those who have been affected by rescheduled or cancelled flights, an opportunity to sample the oldest single cask released by the Tamdhu Distillery to date.
Distilled in November 2002 and bottled in February 2019, this first-fill Oloroso sherry cask was chosen unanimously from a shortlist of eight casks by key members of the Dufry and Edinburgh Airport teams during a visit to the Tamdhu distillery.
The news comes after the expression was crowned as ‘Category Winner’ in the 13 to 20 Years’ Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch category at the World Whiskies Awards 2020.
Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, said: “Naturally we were delighted when this Single Cask Tamdhu expression won in its category at the prestigious World Whiskies Awards.
“We’re proud now to bring the critically acclaimed liquid to a wider audience, allowing more Tamdhu fans the opportunity to taste this wonderful dram and appreciate the craft of the entire team here at the distillery.”
Tamdhu Edinburgh Airport Single Cask (70cl, 57.1% ABV, RRP £279.00) is rich and luxurious on the nose, with notes of buttered fruit cake and orange zest. The palate bursts with rich sherry flavours, dried apricot and a note of cinnamon. This culminates with a warming vanilla and fresh oak finish.
