    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
    well.

    A very nice and drinkable whisky for a very descent price. Good balance!
