Speyside single malt Scotch producer Tamdhu has unveiled the sixth whisky in its Batch Strength series.

Tamdhu Batch Strength No. 006 is a non-chill filtered single malt, bottled at 56.8% ABV. The single malt whisky was matured exclusively in oloroso Sherry casks. Tasting notes include aromas of roasted nuts and vanilla, leading to summer berry pudding, crème anglaise, and orange, lemon and oak spice with water. The finish is said to be ‘long and lingering’ with fruit, spice and Sherry notes. Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery manager, said: “The Batch Strength series is one of our most popular releases – and Batch Strength No. 006 is sure to appeal to our fans old and new. “The high proportion of first-fill oloroso Sherry casks give this whisky a rich, complex taste and long, rewarding finish.” The new release is available to purchase via the Tamdhu website and specialist retailers for RRP £79.99 (US$109) per 700ml bottle. Ian Macleod Distillers is the owner of Tamdhu Distillery. Earlier this month, the company released a gift collection comprising three miniature Tamdhu whiskies. In other whisky news, Diageo unveiled the second release of its collectable Prima & Ultima single malt Scotch series, priced at RRP £23,500 (US$32,720). Meanwhile, trade body the Scotch Whisky Association released figures showing the value of Scotch whisky exports rose by a third during the first half of 2021.
