Tamdhu Fine Single Malt - Old Bottling pre-2013 (70cl, 40%)
This is the Edrington-era no age-statement release. The distillery's single malt brand was relaunched in 2013 and this expression given a premium makeover.
Tamdhu is a historic Speyside producer, and for many years was alone with Springbank and Glen Ord as being the only fully self-sufficient distilleries in Scotland. It was the first in Scotland to install Saladin boxes for malting and today it is the last distillery to still use them, which in its years being owned by Edrington, also supplied malt to Glenrothes and Highland Park. Traditionally, Tamdhu was mostly used in blends such as Cutty Sark and The Famous Grouse, but it has always been regarded as a great single malt, and new owners, Ian Macleod Distillers, are now focusing on this.
