About Tamdhu 12 Year Old Scotch Single Malt WhiskyTamdhu is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky distillery, established in 1897 by a group of like-minded entrepreneurs, who raised today’s equivalent of £20 million, and filled their first casks with the vision of making the finest whisky in the world. To achieve that, they settled on nothing but the best. They enlisted the best distillery architect and engineer of the day, Charles C Doig ESQ, picked the perfect location by the banks of the River Spey, and chose the most advanced techniques. In 1898 the company secured its first precious shipment of sherry casks from bodegas in Spain, and has been maturing its whisky exclusively in the finest Oloroso sherry casks ever since. The distillery modernized its processes in 1949, introducing Saladin boxes, a French invention that mechanizes the barley turning process. The increasing production over the next 15 years required the company to scale up its maltings output, and at one stage it needed an impressive 10 Saladin boxes to meet the demand. Today Tamdhu is one of the last distilleries to malt all of its barley on the spot using a saladin. The 1970s whisky boom brought on another expansion of the distillery, and four stills were added, allowing the distillery to respond to the growing demand without compromising the exceptional quality of its spirit.
In 2010, the Tamdhu Distillery, owned by the Highland Distillers at the time, closed its doors. It however resumed operation only two years later, after being sold to Ian MacLeod Distillers, the world’s 10th largest Scotch whisky company. The new owners wanted to build upon the impressive Tamdhu legacy, and today the distillery makes its whiskies using the same processes and passion for sherry maturation as the founders had before them.
Tamdhu 12 Year is a single malt from the distillery’s exclusively sherry oak matured range, which replaced the 10 year old expression in 2018. After aging in first-fill and refill American oak and European oak casks, which give it its distinctive color and flavor, this sherried whisky is bottled at 43% ABV.

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.
