Tamdhu Batch Strength 70cl
The Tamdhu Batch Strength was released in 2015 as their new cask strength edition to their range of whiskies. The cask strength edition is released in batches that are numbered on each bottle. Each batch is unique to itself and slightly different from each other in flavour. On the nose the scent of fresh red berries, nuts, smooth vanilla and cookie dough. On the palate rich and full with spice, dried fruits and heavy sherry mixed with apricots, creme burlee and oranges.
In 1897 a group of merchants got together to form a consortium and raised å£20 million pounds of today's money and design to open the most advanced distillery on the market. They would hire Charles C Doig who was a very prominent distillery architect and engineer of the time. He used the most used the most modern and advanced techniques of the time to create a consistent and high quality whisky. He positioned the water wheel beneath the floor and redesigned the kilns to waste and heat loss that was extracted by Archimedean Screw. The private rail way for Tamdhu would give it easy access to fast distribution. Tamdhu went through periods of prosper and loss from 1897 to 2011, but in 2010 the distillery would close. 2011 it was then purchased by Ian Macleod Distillers and in 2012 it was relaunched with a fantastic whisky.
