Douglas of Drumlanrig is an independent bottler of which the owner is said to be a descendant of the family Douglas who lived in the Drumlanrig Castle. It’s actually more a mansion than a castle, but I digress. The bottler is part of Langside Distillers. Only 12 bottles of this Tamdhu appeared… that’s quite odd.
The nose is spring clean and sweet on white fruit and some citrus. A truckload of nougat takes possession of my nose buds. Hazelnuts. Waxy. It’s quite pleasant, without being grand.
It’s pretty waxy on the palate as well and even reminds me in that regard somewhat of Bladnoch and Clynelish. Again white fruit and citrus, joined by some pepper and wood, but not bitter. Still, there is this touch of quinine. But it works as a whole, I say.
The finish is medium long on more of the same.
Not exactly a Tamdhu that jumps out, but nothing wrong with it either.
