What’s up next then, as a suitable sparring partner for a 27yo Tullibardine? Not matched by age but by style/type, this begins our red wine/grape-themed mini sesh. MoM ‘,… made with 100% Australian barley and matured exclusively in re-coopered and re-sized Apera (an Australian fortified wine, not dissimilar to Spanish sherry) barrels’.
N: This smells fabulous, a nicely rounded, pleasing sweet nose. No quibbles with the strength at all as this seems more 46% than 43%.
T: A lovely soft mouth offering of well-rounded all-sorts.
F: Becomes surprisingly salty.
C: Accomplished, decent [tropical] aged, complex,… I’m impressed. Most improved since its earlier incarnations.
