  1. Drk Neknul scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    If I could have picked a keg for Barrel # 392, I would have loved Tulli in the Highlands right away. Eye / Nose: Optical: Cola. Point. Heavy sherry sweetness, old furniture, spices (reminds a bit of reduced, dark curry sauce) Palate: creamy, chocolaty, dark, ripe fruit, chocolate kisses, very well integrated alcohol, no junk notes, no bitterness Finish / lFazit: Long, powerful finish, perfectly selected, bottled at the ideal time. Especially in the finish separates in the Dark Sherries often the chaff from the wheat, some bottlings are almost like balsamic. For this one applies: Ingenious Darksherryreifung to IMHO quite fair price of 82.60 EUR for 70cl. Attention! If you do not like strong sherry bottlings, FINGER WEG.

    Very tasty malt, if you like "Dark Sherry". Anyone who has problems with this, but does not want to miss Sherry, should look for the usual suspects, such as Macallan, Glendronach or Glenfarclas. Basically an older sherry is waiting here with a lot of "bums".
    Unfortunately now hardly available anymore, at least not at the original issue price. Anyone lucky enough to have it, I can only recommend this malt to my heart. Here you get what you need. Neither the youth, nor the high alcohol content are noticeable, this results in a strong overall picture.
    • Nose
      True to the motto: "Are you still living or are you already living" - is that still sherry, or is it already whisky? Violent, all-pervasive sherry flavors. Mountain prunes, raisins and some chocolate. Sweet and strong at the same time. Gorgeous, if you like sherry. The high alcohol content is barely perceptible.
    • Taste
      Here is the cask strength, strong onset, but by no means alcoholic. Then as expected - "The winner takes it all" - in this case, the strong sherry. The chocolate from the nose is there as well as the plums and the raisins. Despite the just 9 years also noticeable seasoning available, but without drifting in Bitternoten.
      Cask strength, heavy sherry sweetness and light spice - that fits. Of course, you should not expect much from the Brennereicharakter, which goes completely under.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and strong, towards the end a little spicier than on the tongue.

  6. Torfding scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Despite the few years, this great Tullibardine looks much older, the alcohol is well integrated.
    • Nose
      old oak furniture and furniture polish, musty wood, heavy and thick sherry, light fruit notes, sweet and strong, slightly musty dried fruit, old raisins, prunes, dark chocolate, thick sauce and seasoning, a little burnt bread
    • Taste
      fruity and peppery, dark fruit (berries) with a bitter orange note, chocolate, barrel flavor, a touch of coffee, strong sherry, dry and strong, but not alcoholic
    • Finish
      long, becoming bitter; dry, spicy, warming and undulating, oak

  7. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    As the colour suggests, it must have been a very active cask. A great example of young whisky with a heavy cask influence.
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry notes, very aromatic. Fruity with prunes, dates, blackberries, blueberries, molasses, notes of dark rum, beef, soy sauce, tobacco. The dark side of sherry, but with some lighter fruits in the mix.
    • Taste
      Sweet cherry liqueur, chocolate sauce, orange zest, strawberry marmalade. Rich, thick and fruity. There is a slight spiciness, most likely from the alcohol.
    • Finish
      Very sweet, but also quite spicy, alcohol is burning the tongue a bit too much.
