Tamdhu has announced the release of its Quercus Alba Distinction III limited-edition single malt.


The Quercus Alba Distinction series is named for the American white oak barrels that feature prominently in the Speyside distillery's maturation regime.


It celebrates the journey that the American oak takes, with staves being shipped across the Atlantic to Spain to be seasoned, assembled, and seasoned with oloroso sherry before finding the casks are transported to Tamdhu.


Tasting notes supplied by Tamdhu say the third limited batch of Quercus Alba Distinction features notes of vanilla cream, shortbread, sharp citrus, peppermint, plums, and chocolate.


Sandy McIntyre, Tamdhu Distillery Manager, said: “This series truly celebrates the very best in American oak oloroso sherry casks and we’re excited to release the third expression in this collection.”


Bottles of Tamdhu Quercus Alba Distinction III (48% ABV) are available to purchase exclusively from specialist retailers in the UK, USA, Germany, China, the Netherlands, and Australia (RRP £70).
