Like many other Tullibardine expressions, the number in the name of this single malt comes from the size of the casks it was finished in. In this case, they were 228-liter Burgundy wine casks from the Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet.

Tasting Notes

"The Burgundy wine lends this whisky a nose of ripe red fruit, chocolate, and spice with a faint whiff of alcohol. Cream, toasted wood, and strawberries are there as well. The taste is big and rich, full of crème brûlée, baked apples, orange peel, red fruit, and nutmeg. A slight spiciness and dry oak assert themselves on a long, warm finish. "
