Tullibardine // Highlands, Scotland
Tullibardine was founded in 1949 but closed its doors in 1995. It reopened in 2003, and in 2011 was bought by French wine producer Maison Michel Picard. The small distillery ages this whisky in first-fill bourbon barrels. It's the entry level expression of the distillery's recently re-launched line.

Cask Typefirst-fill bourbon
"Lots of cereal malt, orange, vanilla, and coconut on the nose. The taste boasts white chocolate, peaches and cream, spice cake, toasted coconut, and a hint of cinnamon. It has a medium finish full of spice, vanilla cream, and orange zest. "
