Tullibardine Sovereign (43%, OB 2013)

Nose: malty nose with pear drops and creamy white chocolate. Fresh cereal notes. Vanilla custard. Very soft gristy and mineral notes. Undemanding, modern whisky. Mouth: still very malty. Lots of apples and pears. Quite a lot of spicy notes now: cinnamon, pepper, mint and ginger. A faint potpourri edge as well. Finish: medium long, more malt and ginger, with soft nutty notes.

Even though it’s slightly uninspired, this is not an entry level whisky to be ashamed of. It’s a fresh and properly made spirit, which was not always the case for previous distillery bottlings. Around € 35.

Score: 79/100

Now to name a NAS entry level expression ‘Sovereign’ is a pretty bold move, at least in my opinion. Just let me put it this way: When that one is already so excellent, than why on earth should I even consider to purchase one of the (higher priced) versions?
