Description

Tullibardine 228 Burgundy Cask Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky 

Tullibardine Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made exclusively from locally-sourced malted barley. Once the grains arrive at the distillery, they are milled and mashed before being fermented in the distillery's washbacks. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled by John Black, Tullibardine's master distiller, through the distillery's copper-pot stills (the stills were installed in 1974). Black, who was born in 1942 at the Cardhu Distillery, has spent over five decades in the Scotch whisky industry.

Tullibardine Highland 228 Burgundy Finish Scotch Whisky is aged in American oak casks that were previously used to mature bourbon. After its initial beauty rest, it is finished for one year in 228-liter, red burgundy wine casks sourced from the Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet. 228 Burgundy Finish Whisky represents a unique spirit, distilled in time-honored tradition and finished with a modern twist. 

Tasting Notes

As a result, the whisky has a slightly crimson hue, with an aroma of red berries, toasted oak and vanilla. The palate has notes of nutty dough and vanilla custard, along with touches of apple peel, honeyed oak and raspberries. The finish is long and elegant, with touches of plums, strawberry jam and baking spices.
