Tullibardine is a gentle, civilised, malt that seems to live in obscurity. Nice to be reminded of its existence. Could be a golfers dram - the distillery is near Gleneagles.
35 Years Old, Cask 2112
Nose: Lovely soft peat, rounded with malt.
Palate: Medium to full body. Some treacle toffee. Cobnuts. Sherry. Winey. Coffee. Straw.

Comment: Tullibardine is a gentle, civilised, malt that seems to live in obscurity. Nice to be reminded of its existence. Could be a golfers dram - the distillery is near Gleneagles.
Nose: Initially perfumed: dried herb, heather honey, dried lavender, mothballs. Followed by a pleasant dunnage warehouse smell: alcohol, earth, mellow wood.
Palate: Dry and intensely perfumed honey and spice with fresh malt.
Finish: Dry, woody. Fresh herbs, light smokiness.
Comment: Has held its character well considering its age.
