Tamdhu 10 Year Old Bottling Note

Well-sherried single malt from the Tamdhu distillery, aged for a decade in sherry oak casks. As if that wasn't quite wonderful enough, this has been presented in a delightfully retro-styled bottle. Expect a litany of "Ooooh" and "Ahhhh" noises when you whack this on the table after a good meal.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Dried orange peel, red wine, pecan and raspberry jam.

Palate: Soft red fruit followed by brown sugar and spicy clove. A touch of chocolate-covered Brazil nut.

Finish: Crystallised ginger, cacao and juicy blackcurrant.

Tamdhu 10 Year Old Reviews


Has to be one of the best 10 year's on the market. Incredibly smooth and rich. Fantastic whiskey, don't know what the last review was talking about. Must have got a fake bottle

6th August 2020

Nice bottle, cr@p whisky.

Nose: ryebread, sourdough, German spiced cakes. raw new-make spirit.
mouth: not good, cheap and nasty. artificial tasting - and so much rye.
finish is quite long, but not that enjoyable.

Conclusion: Pretty bottle, but the contents are not that good (unless you like ryebread) - there is something very wrong with this whisky and it ust have changed from the earler higher point scoring expressions, I suspect the whole thing is now made on the cheap and trading on past glory. Avoid.

Good value dram, very impressed considering the cost.

Definitely get red wine and subtle raspberry jam on the nose. Palate you get clove and chocolate with a cocoa and spicy finish.

A great suprise

Really suprised how much I liked this whisky.
Great mouthfeel, smooth, vanilla, wood, fruit, got better over time.
Would definitely buy again and will explore more of the tamdhu expressions.
I am very curious about the cask strength.....
Highly recommended to anyone, also a bargain price. I can’t think of a better 10yr I’ve had.

A dram to savour

What a beautiful wee dram. So smooth and silky. I keep recommending it to friends and it never fails to impress

10th December 2018

A keeper

Not too complicated, yet very satisfying and good value too. A great cabinet filler.

2nd December 2018

Quite unique at a great price

First time I tried a sherried whisky and was nothing like I ever tasted but I can tell it was great.
Tasted a lot like red wine like a merlot to me, some raspberry and bit of spiciness.
My girlfriend doesnt like whisky but as soon as I took the first sip I knew this could probably change her mind.
For the price I have to give it 4.5stars

7th September 2018


Artificial and very sweet/caramel in taste.

7th September 2018


Highly recommend this. Actually bought bottle on a true experts recommendation and man he wasn’t wrong

A polished effort, the Tamdhu 10 is both sweet and woody and the aftertaste is just superb, much better than many more expensive malts

5th July 2018

Smooth with a long and lovely sweet aftertaste.

Beautiful smooth whisky. The aftertaste is long and sweet like a crunchie bar mixed with dates dipped in a full bodied Rioja. No overpower of alcohol just a lovely smoothness around the mouth. I enjoy all whisky but having tasted this it is by far my favourite. Wonderful.

9th December 2017


Beautiful smooth tasting, it’s up there with the serious single malts in my opinion, will be purchasing this again ASAP 👍

6th December 2017

Nice and easy 2

Forgot to give the rating earlier. Really impressive, after second "review". Good value for the money - quite similar to GlenDronach Allardice 18YO but less than a half the price...

4th November 2017

Nice and easy

We had a blind tasting in which some of us thought it is a very good blend. It is a fine competitor to GlenDronach and could be the first whiskey for brandy or cognac lovers. Very well balanced, easy to drink, nice sherry cask and not the shortest sweet finish - as a 10 year SM should have. Even some fans of Islay hummed approvingly. Good job, gentlemen!

13th October 2017

Taste is very smooth with the deep taste developing on the tongue and the side of the mouth

I am new to Speyside whiskies and normally go for Islay with Laphroaig being my favourite to date. I was given this bottle of Tamdhu as a birthday gift. I found it very easy on the nose. Not sharp at all but very subtle. Taste is very smooth with the deep taste developing on the tongue and the side of the mouth. There are gentle tones of vanilla and honey. As expected the peat that makes my Laphroaig is missing but the salt on the lips is there. Has a satisfying long finish. I would certainly recommend.

8th October 2017

The best, pound for pound.

Pound-for-pound this is the best whisky I've come across. It's smooth, easy and approachable. I get vanilla, a hint of sherry fruit and a rich, pleasing finish.

Sure, there may be better malts out there. But not for under £35.

12th September 2017

Smooth and luscious in true Speyside styule

On a dollar per delight basis, this has to be the best Speyside single malt. Absolutely true to the Speyside style. Malty, sherried wood, vanilla and honey with a very long finish. Not even the slightest taste of tar.

29th August 2017

Easy to drink

I try to experiment with scotch from time to time and grab few unknown bottles from my local liquor store. This was in my cabinet for a while as rather dull bottle did not inspire me to give it a taste. Well one day I did. Boy, was I surprised! What a smooth, fruity sipping dram!

28th March 2017

After dinner.

This great whisky and dark chocolate... a combination to kill for. It's price is a bargain.

7th March 2017

Dessert whisky

Tamdhu 10y: colour deep amber (natural). Smell pleasant, sweet, light, caramel. On the palate butter, the body is medium intense wave, smooth, rich. Aftertaste is long, sweet. The best marriage of single malt and sherry.

4th February 2017

A fantastic dram that punches well above its price tag.

Got to be up there as the best value whisky on the market at the moment. This is a cracking dram. All natural colour, no chill filtration and you can tell good casks have been used to produce this. If you like sherried whisky you will love this. A great sipping whisky. Ordering another bottle now.

24th January 2017

Nice dram for heavy cherry lovers

Aberlour alike with more bite and less complex palette. Heavy cherry, oaky witch vanilla all the way. Nice dram for people that like heavily cherried scotch.

13th December 2016

All good

An all round good dram. I was slightly expecting more from this but then I'm used to drinking slightly more sherried whiskies than this one. An easy drinking whisky full of flavour and pleasant aftertaste.

1st November 2016


Great whiskey. Easy drinking

30th October 2016

a great experience !

I was right (again ;) ) to trust the editor's comments. This bottle was a great pleasure to the last drop.

2nd October 2016

Fine whisky indeed

This might have replaced Glenfarclas as a new favorite sherried whisky for me this is fantastic stuff.Nose is a little fumey and yet it is so incredibly smooth for only being 10 years old.And the flavor is pretty much my ideal whisky of this style lots of dark fruit like plums and raisins with some sweet oak,cinnamon and nutmeg with a nice fruity finish that lasts quite a while this seems older than 10 years.Great stuff not cheap for a 10 year old here but worth the money for sure really glad I got this.The Sugarbear

19th September 2016

So So

I love my sherry bomb's and was expecting a tad more than i got from this. no doubt its a palatable dram, and maybe i'm looking for a replacement to the glendronach 15 too hard, but this didnt particularly excite me any more than many other sherried whiskys ive tried, still, it wont go to waste !!!

11th September 2016


Wonderful, wonderful whisky. This is MY whisky. Love it

10th September 2016


I couldn't be happier with this bottle. Smooth, sweet(in a dark fruit sense, not your bright fruitiness of most Speysides), cereal, toasty, maybe hints of cardamom.
For the price, it's hard to beat if you're looking for great sherried Speyside experience

30th June 2016

Not bad

A bit too serried for my liking.

4th May 2016

Delicious- smooth as they come

This is one ridiculously smooth whisky. The sherry notes are all there and it has a very nice mouthful. I am usually an islay and island drinker (Laphroaig and lagavulin being my top 2 favorites)but when I'm looking for a tasty Sherried cask that is ridiculously smooth and a chocolate mouth feel I'll pour a dram of the tamdhu.

29th March 2016

unbelievably beautiful

I do like a nice sherry whisky but this is by far and away the nicest that I have had. simply amazing. the person below describing it as like liquid toffee has it spot on. my favourite whisky by a long way and at an amazing price.

30th December 2015


Flavorful and smooth beyond its age. Macallan is normally my go-to single malt with Select Oak being my favorite. Tamdhu has even more flavor, aroma, texture, and is incredibly smooth. Paired with a Fuente I had a wonderful afternoon. I plan on stocking up and seeking out the cask strength and special editions.

13th December 2015

Oh Tamdhu !

I bought this last week but as I have been enjoying my #whiskyadventcalendar I hadn't opened it - til last night. Oh boy. Each sip leaves you wanting the next. Deliciously smooth with no harshness in the alcohol or aroma. Just delightful.

Tamdhu whiskey review.

This is the most delicious smooth drink. Bought for me as a birthday present and it is the most perfect present although the problem is it is consume able so it does not last long because it is soooo Moreish. It is smooth and mellow.with a lingering aftertaste, wonderful.

11th July 2015


Ive been drinking whisky for years. This was so good I hade the whole bottle in one night. Bit rough the next day mind

3rd December 2014

A Modern Classic

I first tried this easy-drinking malt in the late nineties. It was fantastic value back then and it still is. I saw three Canadian tourists in Pitlochry, Scotland, stampede and buy all three bottles off the shelf - delighted with their purchase. It made me smile and I can understand why!

22nd November 2014

lovely stuff

like drinking liquid toffee...

11th September 2014

Great Whisky

This is the first single malt i have bought and i have had whisky but mostly blended whisky i bought this because i wanted a speyside and am glad i trusted the user ratings its a great whisky and brilliant service and will be buying again

19th August 2014

One of my favorites.

Yes, its a nice bottle but its one of the best Speysides available at the moment. Its made in a old style (non computerised) distillery with real skill and expertise. I find it better than either Macallan or Glenlivet. A lovely dram.

27th January 2014

Very Well Made

I love this. Classic Spayside and wonderfully sheried. Do not think you are paying over the odds for the bottle as you are not.Having said that Mrs N has claimed it when empty.
