Tullibardine Distillery sits in the village of Blackford In Perthshire, one of the gateways to the highlands. The distillery was bought from previous owners, Whyte & Mackay, in 2003 by an independent consortium. Before the purchase, the distillery had been silent (mothballed) since 1994.
Being an independent company, all the decision making is done in house. The production method is very traditional and the distillery is even one of the few distilleries in Scotland equipped with its own bottling plant meaning the team have complete control throughout the whole process.
The new 15yo is the first age statement release from Tullibardine since their reopening. It has been aged solely in first fill bourbon barrels in traditional warehousing.
Nose: Barley sugar and delicate florals, with apple crumble and custard.
Palate: Lots of honeyed malt, with creamy porridge and berry jam along with fresh sponge cake.
Finish: Caramelised nuts, spicy oak and mango curd.
