Tamdhu Batch Strength, 58.8%

Price: $88 Issue: Summer 2015 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Ian MacLeod's first release of Tamdhu was a belter. Now, finally, it's been joined by this high-strength NAS. There's no hint of the high strength on the nose, which is all caramel toffee and shortbread, backed with sultana-like sherry cask influence. The palate is the same: nut, dark fruits, and date. Hugely approachable. With water, it's a matter of…chocolate? Maltesers! All you want in a sherried whisky, and it won't burn a hole in your wallet either.£60
