Tullibardine 228 Burgundy Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Highlands, SCOTLAND
$84. 99 Bottle
$1019.88 Dozen
ABV: 43%
Tullibardine 228 is finished in red Burgundy casks from Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet, the home of Maison Michel Picard, which also owns Tullibardine distillery.

Tasting note: Fairly low-key aromas with a pleasing mingling of tea biscuits and dried red berry notes... hints of sulphur too... The highlight is the juicy finish: A succulent burst of wood, wine and whisky, brisk through the aftertaste and relatively straightforward, but still manages to keep you entertained. 43% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... The nose features charred oak, vanilla, milk chocolate-covered Turkish Delight, and mild, sweet chili. Sweet and spicy on the nutty palate, with eating apples, cranberries, and a silky texture. Allspice and damsons in the lengthy finish.

...No shortage of bitter chocolate. Flawed, but a wow for those looking for a mega dry malt.
