Tamdhu 50 Year
Tamdhu // Speyside, Scotland
Unveiled in early 2017 to celebrate their 120th anniversary, Tamdhu 50 Year is the oldest single malt released by the Speyside distillery. This single cask bottling was distilled in November 1963 and matured for half a century in a first fill European oak butt, once used in the aging of sherry. The design team for its bespoke decanter included a glass specialist, a crystal maker, and luxury jewelers. Only 100 bottles were ever released, hence, the hefty $20,000 price tag.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
