Single Malt Whisky | No Age Statement | 43,00 % ABV. | 49,86 €/l | Tullibardine Distillery | produced in Scotland (Highlands) | Whiskybase ID 40744


The single malt opens with raspberries, dark fruits and a little chocolate. This is joined by a little honey, vanilla and cherry. With a little imagination, hazelnuts can also be sensed.


Orange zest and chocolate, like a good dark chocolate with pieces of orange. The malt from the Highlands also offers hazelnut and raspberries - just like on the nose - and is pleasantly dry, like a good red wine.


The finish of the Highlander is medium-long, oaky-spicy and sweetish-winey.


The Tullibardine 228 gains significantly in quality compared to the base of the Tullibardine Sovereign due to the finish in Burgundy casks. The variety and density of flavours have increased, are more pleasing and are starting to be fun. Nevertheless - there is better quality for the price!
