A new expression for the brand, this is Tamdhu's 12-year sherried release. It's matured exclusively in first-fill and refill casks featuring Oloroso Sherry and bottled at 43% ABV. Let's dive in!
Surprisingly grainy, full of apples, pears, grain, honey, some tobacco and cream. Not wildly complex on the nose, but there's no doubt there's a good deal of sherry character in this pour.
Moderate mouthfeel, honey, apples, baking spice, pears. There's a pleasant balance of fruity character, sherry dessert notes and a touch of oak and grain.
Moderate finish, tobacco, some ethanol, toffee, cream, butter. Easily the best part, the sherry punches true here in the finish.
This is a dram that gets better the longer you sit with it. While the nose is surprisingly grain-forward, the palate and finish develop nicely into an easy sipper of a pour.
