The Tamdhu distillery was created in 1896-97 by a blenders group, but two years later became part of Highland Distillers & Co. The distillery was closed from 1911 to 1913, then from 1927 till 1948 during which time the distillery was used as warehouse for Glenrothes distillery. Tamdhu’s production capacity was been doubled in 1972 and in 1975 the number of stills grew to six. The Tamdu distillery produces its own malt, using a Saladin box. The major part of the production is used in the blends Famous Grouse, J&B and Cutty Sark.

Tasting Notes: The nose is rather floral and spicy, although it has a sweet and slightly smoky character. Some remote hints of pear. In the palate, a pleasant sensation of sweetness, without any aggressivity but with a nice complexity, from ripe pear to unripe wallnut with some light toutches of smoke on the background. A nice finish, lingering and pleasant, complex too, recalling the sweetness of the palate (marshmellow) and having a fresh character (mint) and with some woody hints. RATING: 18/20 43% Alc./Vol.
