Whiskies (9)

Adelphi Tamdhu 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.30%
7 Judging from the very pale colour, the wood did not have much positive input. Hence, perhaps, the lack of Tamdhu's sometime elegance.

Dewar Rattray Tamdhu 12 Years Old 1980
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.10%
7 An enticing note and a more “square” palate. It needs water to cut the edges. Quite refreshing and invigorating for a “floral dew”.

Gordon & MacPhail Tamdhu 1981 Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 No, I don't think I was being suggestible. An unusually complex Tamdhu.

Harris Whisky Tamdhu 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.50%
7 More interesting without water. But then, alcohol prevails. The nose is appealing.

Kingsbury Tamdhu 1966
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A welcome bottling of this neglected malt, and an interesting example.

MacPhail's Collection Tamdhu 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Tamdhu is a pleasant, polite, whisky. Does it really have the stamina for such a marathon maturation?

Tamdhu 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 ?Not a big hitter or EXTREME, but who cares. Sometimes it's nice to be a little gem.

Tamdhu 1984 27 Years Old Scott's Selection
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.60%
8 A nicely-integrated old dram.
