Named for the fact that it was finished in 500 litre x Sherry butts, this is number three in a series of wood finishes from Tullibardine, the others being Burgundy and Sauternes (sweet white from Bordeaux).

Other reviews... Finished principally in Pedro Ximenez Spanish sherry casks, Tullibardine 500 Sherry has a fragrant nose, with new leather, beeswax, apple, and vanilla. The palate is smooth and sherried, with more leather, brittle toffee, orange peel, honey, and nutmeg. The fruity finish is notably spicy, with lingering wood polish notes.84 points 43% Alc./Vol. – whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Summer 2013)
