  1. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior



    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt The
    nose is quite punchy and rich. There are notes of nut oils and aniseed,
    soft apple peels and hints of chewy sultanas and honey. There are notes
    of mocchaccino and rich chocolate enrobed fruits. Notes of rubbed
    peppermint leaves with a grape-like character and notes of drying oak.
    The palate is full and rather robust. There are notes of dry, powerful
    oak with notes of crème de fraise des bois with notes of sultana and
    acacia honey. There are shades of fino sherry with a healthy does of
    vinosity. The finish is long and well-oaked with chewy acidity.Price in 2005: Around 320 Euro

    Tullibardine
    1965/2005 (48.3%, OB, cask #949, 199 bottles) Colour: brownish amber. Nose: starts on
    very bold whiffs of walnut stain and old rancio, arrak (distilled dates) and
    wine lees. Goes on with wet paint and ‘new plastic’ (it isn’t as horrible as it
    sounds) and gets then much more classically sherried, with the usual cortege of
    chocolate, coffee, raisins and a little mint. Not spectacular but balance is
    reached if you don’t rush this one too much. Mouth: hmm... Now it got seriously
    woody, with big, rather drying wood tannins and grape skin. The good news is
    that what’s behind the oak is rather classy here (ripe strawberries, Smyrna
    raisins) but these flavours struggle to make it through the tannins. This was
    probably much more ‘accessible’ ten years ago. Finish: long, oaky and winey, as
    you may guess, very drying. Hard finish, water really needed here. The nose was
    very nice but took some time to develop, but I think the palate is really ‘too
    much’ for my taste. SGP:372 - 78 points.
