Tamdhu 10 year old malt whisky Tasting Notes:
Nose: Softness of vanilla and sugared almonds, balanced by fresh oak and cinnamon.
Palate: Bursting with fruit and spice – gently yielding to toffee and the richness of sherry oak.
Finish: Fruit and vanilla linger, becoming pleasantly drying, finally unveiling the merest wisp of peat smoke.
