Tullibardine is Gaelic for “lookout hill” and refers to a 15th century small medieval chapel located near the distillery. The 225 in the name of this Highland single malt comes from the fact that it was aged for around 12 months in 225-liter casks that previously held Sauternes dessert wine from Chateau Suduiraut.

Tasting Notes

"Fresh and fruity on the nose, with cantaloupe, lemon zest, and orange marmalade existing beside cocoa, honey, and tropical fruit. On the palate, there's white chocolate, orange bitters, oak spice, black pepper, vanilla, butter cream, and even a little grape. Water brings out a bit more citrus zest and sweet vanilla cream. Well suited for those with a bit of a sweet tooth. "
