Rated B- Reviews Scotch Whisky Whiskey

Review: Tullibardine Aged Oak Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Share

tullibardine Aged OakTullibardine is an old Highlands distillery (the grounds upon which it is built have been making booze since the 1400s). It’s had ups and downs, most recently being shuttered in 1995, then reopening in 2003 under new (independent) ownership.

The distillery is now releasing whiskys produced since the reopening of its doors. This release, Aged Oak, is a vatting of whiskies “at least five years old,” all aged in first-fill Bourbon barrels (which, in reality, is what most Scotch is aged in). It is released with no age statement.

It’s a fairly simple whisky, quiet and really quite “mellow.” Young and still hanging on to some of its grainlike characteristics (but not much), it has a moderate vanilla character, a touch of woodiness, and a short finish. Not a whole lot to it, but the creamy touches in the body make it moderately worthwhile, particularly given the price.

92 proof.
