Selected by the 15-strong Tamdhu distillery team, a range of cask types and ages were originally lined up for the special commemorative bottling. After a blind tasting by the team, the first-fill European oak sherry butt, which is said to deliver notes of toffee, apple, dates, raisins and cinnamon, was chosen as the final bottling.

Commenting on the news, Sandy McIntyre, Distillery Manager at Tamdhu Distillery, said: “The distillery team had a lot of fun nosing and tasting nine samples and voting for their favourites. The final top three were then selected for a blind nosing and tasting and ranked by each of the team members to agree on the winning cask.”

He went onto say: “This cask is something to savour and enjoy over a prolonged period. I would expect this bottle to be opened on special occasions when you would share a dram, or two, with close friends and family or even just to keep for yourself – selfish, perhaps, but who can blame you!”

Limited to just 603 bottles, Tamdhu 120th Anniversary Distillery Team Edition, is now available from for a RRP of £250.00.
