About Tamdhu 10 Year Old Scotch Single Malt Whisky
Inspired by the Diamond Jubliee of 1897, which celebrated then-Queen Victoria’s 60 years on the throne, a group of Scottish merchants and whisky traders pooled together capital (roughly equivalent to £20 million in today’s currency) to build the most technologically-advanced distillery the world had ever seen. After procuring land adjacent to the River Spey, the group hired Charles C. Doig, the most esteemed distillery architect and engineer of his time, to construct the industrial masterpiece. The result was Tamdhu Distillery, the most modern distillery of its era.
Tamdhu Distillery survived the ups-and-downs of the 20th century until finally closing in 2011 — shortly after its closing, the distillery was purchased by Ian Macleod Distillers, and is now producing whisky by the same exacting standards which earned Tamdhu Distillery its sterling reputation over the prior century.
Tamdhu has a solid core lineup aged exclusively in the finest sherry oak casks, a characteristic that defines their quality of their whiskies. A hint of peated barley, coupled with water drawn directly from the Tamdhu spring on the banks of the River Spey, generates a masterful combination.
As the first release in their maturing range of whiskies, this 10-year-old is Tamdhu’s signature single malt, aged for a decade in the finest Oloroso Sherry casks. Non-chill filtered, naturally colored, and brimming with soft notes of vanilla, toffee, with just a whisper of peat smoke, this incredible whisky won a Gold medal at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
