Tamdhu Douglas Laing 8 Year 700ml
Single malt Scotch from Speyside's Tamdhu distillery, matured for eight years in a single sherry hogshead between 2014 and 2022. That cask was opened by the team at indie bottler Douglas Laing, releasing a total of 355 bottles for its Provenance collection.
Nose: Roasted walnuts, candied pecans, a touch of maple, and fragrant cinnamon.
Palate: The cinnamon sticks around, with a dash of nutmeg and ginger, while rich, roasted barley and trickles of caramel develop.
Finish: Spiced fruit loaf, buttery shortbread, caramelised almonds, and chewy toffee.
