Tamdhu Quercus Alba Distinction Release 1 Whisky 700ml
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Tamdhu's new 'Distinction' celebrates the influence of the distillery's use of American Oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks.
The wood (Quercus Alba) used in these barrels offer the flavour of vanilla pudding, dates and chocolate, with a mouth-coating fruit-syrup quality. Cherries and subtle citrus notes cut through on the nose, while the palate and fish are dense and full, with the oak having a final say in spices and chocolate again to finish.
