A limited annual release from sherry cask

Tamdhu Speyside single malt Scotch whisky has launched a new limited annual release 15 Year Old to complement its expanding collection in domestic and travel retail markets globally.

The new malt, created for specialist domestic retailers, reflects Tamdhu’s commitment to producing ‘only the best’ sherry cask matured whisky.

Bottled at 46% ABV, non-chill filtered and natural colour, Tamdhu 15 Year Old has been matured in American and European Oak Oloroso seasoned casks from the cooperages of Jerez in Spain’s ‘sherry triangle’.

After the full 15 years in these casks, the result is a complex and rich single malt whisky that delivers a nose of apple pastry, spiced currants and orange zest with notes of pineapple and fennel. The palate delivers juicy apricot and vibrant raspberry, with lemon tart and almonds. The finish is a rewardingly long journey through malt biscuit, cream sherry and vanilla.

The iconic 15 Year Old Tamdhu bespoke bottle takes a prominent position within Tamdhu’s luxurious new packaging. The packaging tells the history of Tamdhu Distillery and the significance of sherry casks within the Tamdhu story.

Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu distillery manager said: ‘We’re extremely proud of our new Tamdhu 15 Year Old. All our whisky at Tamdhu is exclusively matured in the finest Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks.

‘When you taste a dram of Tamdhu 15 Year Old, you can really taste the time and care that has gone in to creating this incredible whisky. We hope Tamdhu drinkers around the world will savour it as much as we do.’

These exceptionally rare oak casks bear two great gifts: colour and taste. Only the best Oloroso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks give Tamdhu its distinctive colour and flavour. The striking copper tones in the single malt are developed naturally through contact with the sherry seasoned casks, which are crafted in the family cooperages and bodegas of Jerez for up to six years before beginning their journey to Scotland.

Tamdhu 15 Year Old is now available to purchase worldwide from specialist retail outlets at RRP £84.99 per bottle (46% ABV). For more information see www.tamdhu.com/our-collection.

Tamdhu’s full range also includes Tamdhu 10 Year Old (UK only), 12 Year Old and Batch Strength limited annual releases, along with two new travel retail exclusives, Ámbar 14 Year Old and Tamdhu Gran Reserva First Edition.
