The First Editions - Tamdhu 20y, 1998, 55.8%, 265b
Distilled in 1998 - only 265 Bottles
Tamdhu distillery is in Speyside. It has most of its own spirit going into blends such as Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark... It has in recent times started to bottle under its own name as an official bottling.
This expression was matured in a refill HHD(hogshead) producing a caramalised almond, sweet waxy and honey, flour and light coloured tinned fruits in the profile.
Natural colour and at cask strength. A pure whisky as you can get, direct from barrel to bottle.
The First Editions was set up by Andrew Laing of Hunter Laing and focuses on mostly older ages of single cask bottlings of whisky that he chooses. Hunter Laing was created when Douglas Laing split down the middle in 2013 and the two brothers Fred and Stewart went their separate ways although both stayed in the world of whisky.
Hunter Laing also now has Ardnahoe distillery on Islay with one of the best views ... weather permitting... looking over at the isle of Jura.
