Reviews from Real Scotch Drinkers!

Nose

“Bags of sweet red fruit and bubble gum. A gentle ‘green’ note and sappy wood, while a citric – acidity shines through. It suggests depth and complexity.

Palate

Warming and dry arrival with wood and spices. Very layered and well matured, without obliterating the spirit character. Dried red fruit, leaning against a distinctive salty note. An ever so gentle coffee-like bitterness leads the way into a lovely long, woody finish.

The Dregs

This brings a ton of maturity and complexity – in fact, this whisky seems to be acting almost twice its age even. Sherry cask a go-go, but in the best possible way!“

About Tullibardine Distillery

Tullibardine or Tulli, as it’s referred to in the industry is a massive site sitting right off the A9, between Perth and Stirling in the town of Blackford. As a distilling site, it’s a fairly new venture, established in 1949 by the distinguished distillery architect, William Delme-Evans. The site’s origins are quite interesting though, as the local brewery (predecessor to the distillery) recorded the first ever purchase of beer in 1488 when King James the 4th of Scotland stopped to purchase a cask of ale following his coronation. The king enjoyed the beer so much that a few years later in 1503 he awarded the brewery the first Royal Charter.

Set at the foot of the Ochil Hills, Tullibardine’s water source, the Danny Burn, passes through layers of basalt and sandstone before before delivering its fresh water to the distillery. The water in this area is renowned for its quality, Highland Spring, Scotland’s popular bottled spring water is sourced from the same hills. Yes, that’s the bottle with the purple thistle branding available in every Tesco and Morrison’s.

Throughout the mid 20th century, Tullibardine changed hands several times, from the original owner to blender Brodie Hepburn to Invergordon and eventually to Whyte & Mackay, who quickly shut down the distillery in 1994. Prior to its shutdown, Tullibardine was known around town as a floral and nutty malt used primarily in blends. In 2003, Tullibardine Distillery was resurrected and its new owners focused on introducing the single malt Tullibardine to markets worldwide. Finding most of the existing stock in old and worn barrels (acceptable for blends but necessarily a prestigious single malt), the new owners embarked on an extensive re-casking project.

Today Tullibardine is owned by French conglomerate Picard Vins & Spiritueux, who continue the previous owners’ goals of producing a premium single malt. Tullibardine’s core range now includes multiple age statements and cask types. The spirit retains its light and fruity notes but the nuttiness of ages past has been replaced. Tullibardine is a fine example of transforming a tired brand into great brand again.
