Tullibardine 228 Burgundy Finish
Tullibardine // Highlands, Scotland

Cask Typeex-Burgundy wine casks
"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. "
