Ten Year Old
Matured exclusively in sherry casks
Bursting with fruit and spice – gently yielding to toffee and sherry oak with the merest wisp of peat smoke.
There was a time when the world turned to Scotland for the next innovation. From manufacturing to medicine, it was an age where anything seemed possible: obstacles were there to be defeated.
These industrious innovators all had one thing in common; they were proud purveyors of a
A belief that anything is possible.
Enthused by a legacy of enlightenment, Tamdhu’s founders set out to construct the most pioneering distillery in the world. A water wheel positioned beneath the floor for optimum performance, kilns redesigned to reduce heat loss – and waste extracted by Archimedean Screw, direct to the distillery’s own railway station. Few names other than Tamdhu so embody the 'Can-Dhu-Spirit' of our grand Industrial Age.
However, fine whisky is not created by technical innovation alone. Carefully selected barley was expertly malted, then combined with cold, clear water direct from the Tamdhu spring. The final ‘ingredient’: fine oak casks from the most trusted sources. Together, these elements combined to ensure the unswerving magnificence of every drop.
113 years later the distillery fell silent, but its soul lived on. Fuelled by the same 'Can-Dhu-Spirit' and passion for quality that inspired those daring merchants an age before, Ian Macleod Distillers took on the challenge. A family enterprise, independent in thought and ownership, they set out to return the eminent distillery to former glory.
To honour their efforts, the sherry casks in use today are of the same quality insisted upon in 1897. Only the best European and American oak is selected to mature the precious spirit. These casks are amongst the finest in the industry with a high proportion being first-fill and teaming with flavour.
