Tamdhu launches 18 Years Old single malt

Tamdhu has announced the launch of its hotly anticipated 18 Years Old single malt.

The Speyside distillery, which exclusively uses oloroso sherry-seasoned casks to mature its whiskies, has combined American and European oak oloroso casks for the new limited release.

Bottled at 46.8% ABV and non-chill filtered, Tamdhu says the 18 Years Old delivers "layers of indulgent flavour and a deep natural colour which reflects the quality of the oak".

Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu distillery manager, said: "Tamdhu has rightfully earned a reputation for producing the very best sherry-matured whiskies, so crafting, bottling and launching our 18 Years Old will go down as a true career highlight.

"The entire distillery team has an innate understanding of the Tamdhu sherry maturation process - so we selected a combination of casks that deliver a truly special drinking experience, befitting such an important age statement."

Gordon Dundas, Tamdhu global brand ambassador, said: "Across our entire range, we are dedicated to full-term maturation in the very best oloroso sherry casks. The combination of both American and European oak casks results in two distinct styles, which we combine to show the amazing character of this fantastic distillery."

The announcement of the 18 Years Old release comes as the brand is celebrating its 125th anniversary.

On the milestone, Dundas added: "It's apt that such a ceremonial age statement - the 18 - is unveiled during the brand's 125th anniversary. We've had well over a century of dedication to craftsmanship, and the launch of this exquisite dram paves the way for the years to come."

The Tamdhu 18 Years Old will be available through the Tamdhu website, and through specialist retailers in markets across Europe, the US, Asia and Australia, from April 2022 (RRP £139.99).

The distillery is opening its doors to the public during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, with tours, tastings and a luxury 'Spain to Speyside' experience. Festival visitors will be among the first to try the 18 Years Old.
