Tamdhu Batch Strength #001

Tamdhu Batch Strength is the latest high-strength addition to the core range, which complements the existing Tamdhu 10 Year Old. It was matured in a combination of American and European oak sherry casks (a large proportion being first-fill) and bottled at a generous 58,8% alcohol.

Nose: folds open nicely. Juicy fruits (red apples, sultanas and berries) and lots of nutty notes (hazelnuts and walnuts). Rose pepper. Malty sweetness and a whiff of vanilla.

Finish: rich and sweet, but increasingly peppery and spiced. Cinnamon buns and vanilla cake. Oranges and berries again. Heavy caramel / sticky toffee pudding in the background. Coffee beans and chocolate. Some light (spirit) sulphur as well.

Finish: long, spicy, with roasted notes and hints of dried apricots.

This is an intense, spiced up version of the regular Ten. A similarly bloated, slightly sulphury style with much more punch this time. Around € 70.

Score: 83/100
