Whisky Reviews for Tullibardine 1993
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.44 points
- Sherry is absolutely present, some orange and dried fruits. A little less alcoholic sensation would have given a better experience but a good dram for the price.
- Since Tullibardine distillery in Perthshire reopened in 2003 after a decade?s
silence, the new owners have issued a significant number of expressions. These
have included Marsala, Moscatel and Port wood finishes, but one of the 2006
releases seems the best of the ?finished? bunch so far. It is from a 1993
distillation, and has spent some 18 months in an Oloroso Sherry butt prior to
bottling. Up there with the same distillery?s excellent cask strength John Black's
Selection 1986, Cask 697 for the lover of a truly Sherried malt. The nose is
rich, with brittle toffee, a whiff of furniture polish, spice and gentle Sherry.
Water releases much sweeter, fruitier notes. In the mouth this is a big-bodied
whisky, mouth-coating, spicy, and not too sweet. Elegant and well balanced, with
hazelnuts coming through once water is added. The finish is long and
increasingly drying. A lovely example of how a perfectly-judged period of Sherry
finishing can enhance a malt. Tullibardine and Sherry wood go together extremely
- "Distilled in 1993 at the Tullibardine distillery in the Highlands, finish in a sherry cask."
- A very nice and drinkable whisky for a very descent price. Good balance!
