  1. kaeuflin scored this whisky 69 points Expert Junior

    Wow that tastes really young, for a 10 year old.

    Grace points for natural color, neatly incorporated alcohol, and no K├╝hlfilterung + a really chic presentation

    It seems to me like ten years of hardly matured whisky, out of a few refill kegs, which was then finished in a wine barrel to hide the remaining immature notes.
    Who loves Tullibardin NAS (eg the 500), will be thrilled ... For me, huge disappointment. No good first contact with this bottler.
    Blindly I would have said 3-5 years
    • Nose
      70 70
      Yeast .. oh and a little grappa / fermented grapes, a bit of malt.
    • Taste
      70 70
      More yeast, malt beer ... A little semi-dry red wine. Cheap Pinot Noir from the liter bottle with screw cap ....
    • Finish
      70 70
      Fermented grapes, new wine, a furry, youthful feeling, and a slight bitterness, but without the oak or age becomes noticeable.
