Tullibardine 20 Year
Tullibardine // Highlands, Scotland
Tullibardine has gone through a recent relaunch and the new 20 and 25 year bottlings have been brought in to replace previous vintage bottlings. This 20-year-old single malt is aged entirely in first-fill bourbon casks.
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.
Cask Typefirst-fill bourbon
"The nose is wonderful and brings honey and vanilla, allspice, oatmeal cookies, even something a little tropical like cocoa butter and papaya. The taste follows suit, with lots of vanilla, salted caramel, malt, orange oil, and oak. The wood threatens the other flavors but never goes overboard. The finish is medium and sweet, and full of Tullibardine's signature vanilla note as well as gingerbread and raisin. "
