T: This is really strong stuff with more malty/creamy notes from the nose. Theres a huge pepperiness regardless of water added. Fortunately time resolves the heat issue in the main which coincides with the appearance of soft rubbery notes. Later still, theres quite some dry herbal: rosemary, thyme etc., and onion seeds.
F: The rubber=malt remains with a little bitter astringency and fresher with natural liquorice wood.
C: The energy of this Tullibardine is akin to a sports car whizzing around country lanes. Its constantly changing up and down the gears with plenty of accelerations and injections en-route. Rather exhausting and yet exhilarating at the same time.
