Tullibardine 500

Mellow, Sweet Fruity
The Tullibardine 500 is based on the Tullibardine Sovereign and undergoes a 12-month finish in a classic sherry cask, which should be familiar to any whisky enthusiast.

Vanilla and malt open the nose of this Highland whisky. A hint of sherry paired with butterscotch merges with fermented fruit (apple, pear), giving it a slightly acidic flavour.


The whisky is soft and creamy, almost watery on the tongue. The classic fig and date flavours from the sherry cask would round off the taste well if it weren't for the disturbing ethanol note. Too bad.


Unfortunately, the 500's finish is short and bitter.


The Tullibardine 500 is a little thin and hints at the sherry cask, but there's not really much there. Although we see an improvement in quality compared to the Tullibardine Sovereign, this is unfortunately marginal.

Rating: 64/100 - Good (Marcel: 65 | Sascha: 63)
