The Tamdhu Distillery Brings Forward A New 15 Year Old Scotch

By Nino Marchetti / March 26, 2019

The Tamdhu distillery in Scotland, as we’ve touched upon in the past, was originally established on the banks of the River Spey in 1897. It is known mainly for a brief period of being shuttered and also its extensive use of Oloroso sherry casks for whisky aging. Those here recently debuted a new 15 year old expression that’s set to be a limited annual offering.

The new Tamdhu 15 Year Old Scotch whisky, according to those behind it, has been matured in a combination of American and European oak, Oloroso sherry seasoned casks from the cooperages of Jerez in Spain’s ‘Sherry Triangle.’ It is a higher end bottling for the distillery, clocking in at 46% ABV and is both natural colored and non-chill filtered.

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.”

As it stands now plans call for the Tamdhu 15 Year Old to be made available worldwide for around £85, or about $115 USD.
