Note by Feinschmecker Single Cask Whisky Edition 2016 - Tullibardine 2006 (Bordeaux Hogshead), 57.1 Vol .-%
COLOR: pale copper with light brown reflections NOSE: Strange five-o'clock tea idyl - to tender Darjeeling's there is the exceptionally "poshe" version of a Mars bar lightly salty caramel, not too bright milk chocolate with grape-jelly filling, next to a well-meaning soul has a few crashing -fixed pears (almost Glenfiddich-esk!) and open a window, on the rain-wet wooden frame a warm afternoon sun shines. TASTE: salt caramel , bitter orange, a delicate touch of dark stone mushrooms - umami at its best. Later then Aachener Pfümli en passant, the fruit goes, spice comes (and remains: cinnamon, clove, allspice and pepper finely dosed), dark chocolate. FINISH: Medium long , spicy (Cabernet Sauvignon to franc?), Slightly ethereal notes, and the "fine-grained tannins" cited in wine descriptions - delicately astringent, overall very nice grip. CONCLUSION: Very successful seminar in finishing! Undiluted surprisingly "vinous" to "wine-spicy" without any intrusiveness and so not made up - invites, handy as he is, to intensive employment.
