Whisky Reviews for Tullibardine 2007 vW

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.89 points

  1. Menko scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Oily, sweet, vanilla, oak, powerfull. Not very complex, but enough punch to make it interesting. Tastes better than it smells.

  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    blind sample of singlemalt x-mas calendar.

    Much better (fruitier and bit more complex) with water. Otherwise it is a dram that is soon going to be forgotten.
    Nothing that I need to taste again.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Mildy fruity nose on rather white fruits (pear) and a malty vanilla sweetness with a hint of earthy white cabbage. Not overly complex.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Fruits trend towards light yellow now, malty sweetness, then vanilla and whipped cream on a pear cake with crumble. Alc. has quite some power.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Finish is driven by the alcohol (warmth) some fruits and sweetness that is drying out towards the end. Medium+ length.

  3. rottendon scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful, initially fruity bourbon barrel, which is increasingly spicy, strong and intense.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Pear Helene, some fallen fruit and malt immediately after pouring, very intense! After a bit of life very calm and aromatic, some lime juice and vanilla, mirabelle plums. Pretty much acid. Mineral and maritime notes emerge. Warms first mineral, peaches are added. Then the acid increases again significantly. After the first sips an intense meaty note is added.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Quite strong and tingling in the onset, slightly unripe, acid apples and very light honey on the flavors side. The mouthfeel is fluid but dense. To the back a little tannins and menthol. In the second sip already in the foreground considerably bitter, coffee in the honey, also grassy.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Dries in the finish first, before a slight sweetness of strength spreads. Warms the chest area intensively, overall medium.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Very clean spicy ex bourbon in cask strength, delicious, but nothing to remember.
    • Nose
      In the nose similar to the Souvereign very robust and malty, with more light fruits and a mineral note.
    • Taste
      Fruity, spicy, and the slight touch of yoghurt.
    • Finish
      Departure clean, slightly fruity, oak, spicy, slightly mineral.

  5. MVDW scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Tried again on 10-11-2019, but it is not my whisky. Too clean, little happens and too sweet for my taste. -2 points for the nose and -1 for the taste.

    Certainly not bad whisky but again (still), not my taste.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Green apples, dried apricots, vanilla, sweet, fairly dry / closed further
    • Taste
      82 82
      Lots of vanilla, sweet. After tasting several times I don't get much out of it anymore, I would really describe it as a really sweet whisky, almost powdered sugar. The alcohol is present, but not unpleasant. Pure to drink.
    • Finish
      82 82
      As described above. Medium finish.
