Color
Pale gold
Nose

In hellem Licht (am besten Sonnenlicht) sieht man deutlich, dass Cadenhead auf die Kältefiltration verzichtet hat. Viele kleine Fasssedimente werden sichtbar. Die erste Nase ist recht ungewöhnlich: Frisch geknackte Walnüsse, Roggenbrot und floral-fruchtige Noten sind meine ersten Assoziationen. Ich gewähre dem Tullibardine einige Minuten Zeit zur Entfaltung. Nach und nach öffnet sich der Malt und es treten neue Aromen in den Vordergrund. Leicht florale Noten (Blumenwiese & blühende Sträucher) sind weiterhin präsent, frisch gemähtes Gras, helle Früchte, Zitronen, Vanillekipferl und schöne Eichenholznoten folgen. Der Alkohol (47,3%) ist gut eingebunden und kaum spürbar.

Taste

Die Textur des Tullibardine ist sehr cremig und seidenweich. Zu Beginn macht eine spürbare Würze auf sich aufmerksam. Frisch gemahlener Pfeffer tänzelt kurzzeitig auf der Zungenspitze, ehe süß-fruchtige Noten dominant werden. Helle unreife Früchte (Birnen, Aprikosen), Zitrusfrüchte, Vanilleeis, Shortbread, Muskat, Ingwer, reichlich Walnüsse, zarte Anklänge von Zartbitterschokolade, Roggenbrot und würzige Eichenholznoten sind präsent. Die Abwechslung zwischen den süßen Aromen und den würzig-schweren Noten ist sehr gelungen. Beide Seiten verschmelzen zu einem harmonischen Geschmackserlebnis. Der Alkohol ist perfekt integriert. Auf das Hinzufügen von ein wenig Wasser verzichte ich. Eine leichte Bitterkeit ist bereits am Gaumen feststellbar.

Finish

Mittellang bis lang, süß und würzig. Der angenehm lange Abgang serviert dem Genießer weiterhin einige viele Facetten. Ein süß-fruchtiges Wechselspiel von hellen Früchten, roten Äpfeln, Vanilleeis, Shortbread, Roggenbrot, Pfeffer, reichlich Walnüssen, Zartbitterschokolade und würzig-herben Eichenholznoten lässt den Malt langsam ausklingen. Der Tullibardine hinterlässt eine leichte Bitterkeit am Gaumen.

[July, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 105 Euro in January, 2016.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a strange but delicious extremely nutty profile.  A must try!

There is no accounting for taste...

Nose

I've seen Serge saying something about bread and thought "pff, yeah, sure...". He is kind of right though!


Lots of different grains and flour from these grains. Not necessarily bread, but raw bread dough. Really odd but not unpleasant. When your nose got used to it you get more of the rather usual and expected stuff like citrus, vanilla and some grassy notes.
Taste

Creamy and fruity, no more gras and no more grain/bread.

Finish

Medium length, almost long, with some oak and some frutiness.

Comments

A nice surprise! The nose is somewhat odd but it is still, or rather because of that, very likeable.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

De la pomme verte et jaune, et du citron très acidulé. De la pêche juteuse se cache derrière, apportant un sucré bienvenu à ce nez jusque là trop acide à mon goût.

Taste

Fruitée et onctueuse. Du sirop de citron, de la compote de pomme jaune. De la poire blanche bien mûre, et du jus de raisin blanc.

Finish

Longue. De petits pétillements viennent, et s'en vont rapidement. Un acidulé fruité reste en bouche et s'installe à demeure. Une très légère amertume fruitée apparaît en toute fin de bouche.

Comments

En aveugle, j'aurais juré être face à un Speysider, très classique, en fût de bourbon. Tullibardine est pourtant une distillerie des Highlands (dans les terres, entre Édimbourg et le Speyside; et non loin de celui-ci donc je me pardonne moi-même). Bien fait, agréable du début à la fin; un bon whisky classique, en fût de bourbon. Et très facilement buvable.

Tullibardine 22 yo 1993/2015 (47.3%, Cadenhead, Small Batch, 528 bottles) Five stars Not sure when this new one was bottled, perhaps this year already? Colour: straw. Nose: grains and bread. It’s like nosing the bread buffet at breakfast in a posh hotel in Tyrol or in the Bavarian Alps. I won’t list all breads, but there are at least fifteen different ones. What’s particularly striking is these notes of gourd seeds, then we have a little ink and, imagine, some rye, as in some young American ryes. Fun stuff! (do Tullibardine source from MGP? Hey, I’m joking!) Mouth: very un-Scottish indeed. This could be a blend of Mackmyra with High West rye or something. So plenty of bread, geranium syrup, some ginger, some nutmeg, and then a little maple syrup and custard. I do seem to detect pomegranates as well. Oh, almost forgot to mention olives. Fun stuff indeed. Finish: quite long, still a bit ‘wacko’ but in a great way, and always extremely bready. A touch of lavender sweets in the aftertaste, and some ginger liqueur plus new oak and pepper. And some lapsang souchong. Comments: totally unexpected. Maybe a cask that some Scottish blenders would refuse because of its huge idiosyncrasies, but whisky enthusiasts who’ve already tried everything will love this. Nutshell, different and excellent, a whisky that’ll make you smile. SGP:352 - 90 points.
