Tullibardine 25

£350.00

Description

Tullibardine’s history of brewing and distilling dates back to 1488, when King James IV of Scotland stopped by the site, a brewery at the time, to purchase beer. This was recorded as the first public purchase of beer in Scotland.

Fast forward to 1947 when distillery specialist William Delme-Evans visited the same spot and found that the mineral rich character and purity of the water from nearby springs situated in Perthshire’s Ochil Hills was perfect for distillation. The Ochil Hills are well known for the gold that was once mined from them, giving us our ‘a drop of pure Highland gold’.

Using the Danny Burn as the water source, Delme-Evans converted the brewery site into a whisky distillery and named it Tullibardine after the small medieval chapel situated nearby and translating as ‘lookout hill’ in Gaelic. Tullibardine was the first distillery to be built in Scotland since 1900.

This is a delicious, smartly packaged 25 year old from the Tullibardine distillery. It boasts all of that typically malty, creamy, slightly spicy flavour we’ve come to associate with the distillery.

Nose Rich notes of spice and manuka honey, hints of cooked fruit, toasted oak and malt loaf.

Palate Thick, creamy palate entry with notes of bitter orange marmalade, kiwi fruit, custard apples, baking spice and oak.

Finish Long finish with banana and strawberry jam.

Overall A deliciously rich, creamy dram.
