Single Malt Scotch Whisky
How to Drink
Nestled in Blackford, Scotland, Tullibardine’s history dates as far back as the 1400s, where the buildings formerly housed a brewery – even serving beer to King James 4th of Scotland! Flash forward to 1947 when the brewery was converted into a distillery, producing its first drop of spirit in 1949. Despite the distillery changing hands a few times over the years since, Tullibardine’s reputation for the highest quality Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky hasn’t wavered.
From the distillery: In the glass, the auburn hue of this whisky comes directly from its time spent in the 228 litre barriques that previously held Pinot Noir from Chateau de Chassagne-Montrachet. On the nose, red cherries and vanilla with hints of chocolate and Turkish Delight. On the palate, a real hint of red summer fruit, more chocolate, and a sweet spice note on the finish.
Finished for 12 months in 228-litre Red Burgundy wine casks from Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet this Scotch is non chill filtered and bottled at 43%.
Nose: Cinnamon, red cherries, fresh sliced red apple, and toast. If you blinded me on this I would maybe say Agricole Rum. Super cool; you’d think it would be closer to any sherry cask finish but this is distinctly a Pinot Noir barrel.
Palate: Red fruits; cherry and cranberry. Baking spices (nutmeg, cinnamon), brown sugar, and molasses.
Finish: Lots of that red fruit coming through again, nice and long.
