Tamdhu 1963 - 55 Year Old - 1 of 1 Donated By Ian Macleod Distillers 70cl / 55.4%
27 November 2018
A one-of-a-kind bottle of Tamdhu 55 Year Old, presented in a Glencairn crystal decanter with stopper. This was distilled on 2 November 1963, matured in first-fill European oak sherry butt number 4678, and bottled at cask strength on 15 November 2018.
This is bottle number 1 of 1.
Tamdhu distillery was built in 1897 by a group of blenders led by William Grant. The famous distillery designer Charles Doig was the architect, and whisky writer Alfred Barnard wrote in 1898 that Tamdhu was ‘perhaps the most efficient and designed distillery of its era’. Like its neighbour Knockando, it was a late Victorian railway distillery which quietly supplied blenders since its foundation. Today, the distillery is owned by Ian Macleod Distillers.
Tamdhus from the 1960s count amongst the finest and most celebrated whiskies of that era, and the distillery's range of bottlings now regularly earn awards, firmly grounding its well deserved reputation for excellence.
