  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    It looks like a blend, but not so great!
    few scents, spices on the nose and mixed fruits without real character!
    on the palate, it's bland and flat, limited like a glenmorrangie 5 years old ... but spices hide everything, typical of basic blends!
    short final, just a disappointment!

  4. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    [Pronounced] Tulli-Bardin is a really fascinating distillery, one that produces just 150.000 litres a year. That's peanuts in comparison to nearby giants such as Blair Athol [3,000,000 litres]. The distillery itself is, shall we say ‘battle worn’ - and I really like it for that. The warehouse is secured by a large heavy door and a gate inscribed with the message ‘Weesht John and Angels at work’. And then there's the dunnage warehouse area in a double apex building with no support in the middle! Distressed concrete means it holds itself up, making for a dramtic, moody and memorable atmosphere inside - cracking!!
    N & T: Easy one this - smells and tastes like new-make spirit, so uber-young. So that's a neutral spirit on light cereal and even lighter fruits.
    C:  Exactly what you'd be asked to produce for blends - good, neutral spirit I'd imagine. Nothing else to say. Let's try the Burgandy finished NAS Tullibardin[e] WB

  5. Albaron scored this whisky 76 points Specialist

    Nice malty, that's about it. The rest is flat but has spice, is probably a bit older.

    As part of a blind tasting tasted
    • Nose
      very light alcohol and solvents, seasoning, a little vanilla and toffee, fresh mint
    • Taste
      a little alcohol, seasoning, vanilla, creamy toffee, malt, bitter, a bit too long drawn black tea
    • Finish
      some malt, then seasoning - from the barrel?

  6. Arquebus scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Unmemorable - life is too short!! 72 pts - one of my lowest scores

  7. rottendon scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Clean balanced malt with very independent character, not one of many times. Very easygoing, even he could find his way to my shelf. I'm typing here on age.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruits immediately, juicy. Shortly thereafter, a slight eucalyptus note comes up, as well as lovage. The fruits are gone, sweetness barely exists. After a while, the whole thing comes in balance, herbs and fruits, no sugar junk. The nose is then heated sweet, but still behaving, Ricola Swiss herbal sugar. The warmer, the more caramel-like the whole thing becomes.
    • Taste
      Very own, I just have to be clear about what that is. Fresh Belgian waffles with sticky caramel and coffee powder. Again the herbs and much more, Storck giants z. B. The oak is also very clear, but harmoniously integrated, as well as the alcohol. The mouthfeel may be a bit too thin. I still like it the second time and it's still too thin.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately, quite short, because the finish is well balanced and even.

  10. Gloin scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    An intense, very nice nose. Unfortunately, the taste is far from the intensity and is superficially one-dimensional, the finish is also one-dimensional and also very short.

    blind tasting
    • Nose
      intense, green apple, sawdust, a little lime, getting sweeter, very aromatic
    • Taste
      surprisingly soft and gentle after the intense nose, sweet, almost no oak, sweet, a little grapes, a little vanilla
    • Finish
      short, malt, a touch of oak
