Tamdhu 10 yr old

Tamdhu Batch Strength
Nose: Red berries, sultanas, walnuts, hints of pecan, delicate citrus and oak, creamy vanilla, cookie dough.

Finish: Rich, biscuity and malty, toast and marmalade with pleasing fruitiness lingering.
Isle of Skye 8 yr old
Nose: Stunningly evocative. Deep peaty tones waft from the glass, like the reek from a crofter’s lum. But there is a lot more beyond: the grains intermingle deliciously with oaky, vanilla notes and something malty and even slightly honeyed. The stuff of dreams.
Palate: Sweet at first, and remarkably viscous. This seems to be the peat hanging around and there is intense barley sugar and spice.
Finish: Massively flavored. This creaminess continues for what seems hours. Remains sweet, spicy and chewy and at the end faintly nutty. The oak returns at the end.
