  5. diamond2000 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: open, quite bright, strawberry jam, vanilla pastries with the same strawberry jam, muesli with fruit and milk, creamy notes, dried herbs, after a while you can distinguish light minerality.

    Taste: sweet-pepper, berry jam, citrus marmalade, burnt caramel, a little bit of herbal bitterness. Rather dense, considering 43%.

    Finish: the same strawberry jam, bitter zest, caramel, medium length.

    Rating: 82-83

  6. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Noses young (slightly below or around 10 years), yeasty, and rubbery, with some nice Highland character à la Tomintoul, Tomatin or Deanston.
    Tastes tangerine-fruity and aspartamy-sweet with a drying edge.
    Finishes sweet with a mild and pleasant burn. Rum-soaked raisins in the aftertaste.
    The sherry influence is pleasantly subdued here, without swamping the distillate. The ABV is well chosen, too; good body. Not a bad choice at this price level.

  8. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A young malt with sherry finish. The Tullibardine with Burgundy finish from the same series I found very pleasant and original, the 25-year-old Tullibardine from 1st and 2nd-Fill sherry casks is of course a different league, but a more than pleasing malt. This very young malt with sherry finish convinces me less. The youth is clearly noticeable, I find the slightly sour head note less pleasant, the sherry tones catch the whole thing a bit and give some harmony.

      The first impression conveys a slightly sour head note. Fresh damp grass, dry hay behind; slightly metallic. Something sherry also turns over it. Not unpleasant. Basic tenor: Fresh and young with a tight sherry shirt over the still tender body.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Slightly metallic, the slightly herbaceous acidity comes through, then these less pleasing aromas are captured by pleasant sherry tones. The palate also reports the oak. Fir-grassy-young with sherry cover.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Even in the rather short finish dominate the slightly metallic grassy notes, complemented by slight oak bitterness.

  9. KOQ24 scored this whisky 55 points Expert Junior

    It needs a lot of Oxidization to become pallatable, though the strong rubbery note never goes away.
    On the Tongue it got a lot more pleasant though.

    The Sherry Finish is definitely the weakest of Tullibardine's Finishes.
