    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      In bright light (preferably sunlight) you can clearly see that Cadenhead has dispensed with the cold filtration. Many small barrel sediments are visible. The first nose is quite unusual: freshly cracked walnuts, rye bread and floral-fruity notes are my first associations. I give the Tullibardine a few minutes to unfold. Gradually, the malt opens and new flavors come to the fore. Slightly floral notes (flower meadow & flowering shrubs) are still present, freshly mown grass, bright fruits, lemons, vanilla crisps and beautiful oak wood notes follow. The alcohol (47.3%) is well integrated and barely noticeable.
    • Taste
      The texture of Tullibardine is very creamy and silky soft. At the beginning, noticeable spiciness attracts attention. Freshly ground pepper prances briefly on the tip of the tongue, before sweet-fruity notes become dominant. Light unripe fruits (pears, apricots), citrus fruits, vanilla ice cream, shortbread, nutmeg, ginger, plenty of walnuts, delicate echoes of dark chocolate, rye bread and spicy oak notes are present. The alternation between the sweet aromas and the spicy-heavy notes is very successful. Both sides merge to a harmonious taste experience. The alcohol is perfectly integrated. I abstain from adding a little water. A slight bitterness is already noticeable on the palate.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, sweet and spicy. The pleasant long finish continues to serve the connoisseur many facets. A sweet and fruity interplay of light fruits, red apples, vanilla ice cream, shortbread, rye bread, pepper, plenty of walnuts, dark chocolate and spicy oak oak notes makes the malt slowly fade away. The Tullibardine leaves a slight bitterness on the palate.

    [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!

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

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blindly, I would have sworn to face a Speysider, very classic, bourbon cask. Tullibardine is a Highland distillery (inland, between Edinburgh and Speyside, and not far from it so I forgive myself). Well done, nice from start to finish; a good classic whisky, in bourbon cask. And very easily drinkable.
    • Nose
      Green and yellow apple, and very tart lemon. Juicy peach hides behind, bringing a welcome sweetness to this nose so far too acidic for my taste.
    • Taste
      Fruity and unctuous. Lemon syrup, yellow apple sauce. Ripe white pear, and white grape juice.
    • Finish
      Long. Little crackles come, and leave quickly. A fruity acidity remains in the mouth and settles permanently. A very slight fruity bitterness appears at the end of the mouth.

    Tullibardine 22 yo 1993/2015 (47.3%, Cadenhead,
    Small Batch, 528 bottles) 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.
