Tamdhu Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has announced the sixth limited edition of its multi-award-winning ‘Batch Strength’ series.
Batch Strength No. 006 is bottled un-chillfiltered at 56.8% ABV, with each sherry cask meticulously hand-selected to create this one-of-a-kind release.
Tamdhu is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky to exclusively mature all its whisky in the finest Oloroso sherry seasoned casks from start to finish. This scarce wood imparts a deep copper hue and a complex flavour profile.
True to the Speyside distiller’s ‘Only The Best’ philosophy, as always a very high proportion of the casks chosen are first-fill which results in a magniﬁcent Single Malt for the sherry wood connoisseur.
On the nose, fresh spiciness from the oak is followed by roasted nuts and warming vanilla. A rich palate follows; summer berry pudding with a dollop of crème anglaise. A drop of water brings orange, lemon and a whisper of oak spice.
The finish is trademark Tamdhu, long and lingering with rich fruit, spice and unmistakable sherry notes. Swells of cinnamon spice combine with rich figs and citrus zest in a luxurious farewell.
Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, said: “The Batch Strength series is one of our most popular releases – and Batch Strength No.006 is sure to appeal to our fans old and new. The high proportion of first-fill Oloroso sherry casks give this whisky a rich, complex taste and long, rewarding finish.”
