There’s just something special about a Sherry finished Highland Single Malt.
 
If we set out to find the oldest brewing and distilling spot in Scotland, Tullibardine would definitely be in the running. Back in the 15th century, King James IV — a young, strapping man — stopped in to the local brewery here on the way to his coronation. The old brewery was transformed into a distillery back in 1946 and has become a solid maker of Single Malt Whisky. They produce their signature Whisky, several finished "double-wood" Whiskies, and some older limited editions.

Tullibardine has a unique naming system for their finished wood Scotch Whiskies. They call their standard single malt "Sovereign" and is a marriage of young and older Whiskies. The finished wood products are aged one more year in various barrel types and named for the size of the finishing barrel. Tullibardine 500 Sherry Finish is so-called because the Sherry casks are traditionally 500 liters in size. And if you don’t mind us saying, there’s just something special about a Sherry finished Highland Single Malt. In 2019, it was one of the most liked expressions in our community, earning it a 2020 Flaviar Award.

Smartass Corner:
The name Tullibardine means "vantage point" in Gaelic and originates from the name given to a little medieval chapel on a hill near the distillery that dates back to 1446.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
The name Tullibardine means "vantage point" in Gaelic and originates from the name given to a little medieval chapel on a hill near the distillery that dates back to 1446.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
