the Perthshire distillery of Tullibardine - 22-year-old (cask # 665). Matured in
a Sherry hogshead, this bottling, and the Linkwood, above, follow on from
Lemaitre?s previous offerings of a seven-year-old Glenrothes and a 40-year-old
Springbank. All bottlings in the Whisky Mad range are Sherry wood-matured, as
this is the style of malt whisky personally preferred by Regis Lemaitre. The
nose is of marzipan, sweet Sherry, vanilla fudge and cocoa powder, while the
palate is warm, rounded and confident, with leather and spice, drying steadily.
Lingering oak and liquorice sticks in the finish.
