Tullibardine has revamped their core offering and introduced Tullibardine Sovereign Single Malt — classic, fruit-forward Highland Single Malt perfect for your daily dram.

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. After a brief closing in 1995, it was brought back to life in 2003 — and we’re all pretty happy about that. They produce a wide range of aged Single Malts, several finished "double-wood" Whiskies, and some older limited editions — any of them a solid and approachable daily dram.

Since acquiring the Tullibardine Distillery in 2011, Picard Vins & Spiritueux has been working hard to refine the product line and raise the profile of the classic Highland Spirit. Tullibardine Sovereign is the core of their Signature series and evidence of that successful effort. This Single Malt is made in copper pot stills and aged in first-fill Bourbon casks. And although there is no official age statement, this dram clocks in at a minimum of five years and is bottled at 43% ABV.

Ratings & Reviews
Terrance
Terrance,
Easy to drink. It's a good scotch just not a lot of complexity.
 
Dale
Dale,
Decent scotch for a basic sipper or for cocktails.
 
Carl
Carl,
What can I say, it’s another wandering spirit in search of its own identity...in other words just another scotch.
 
Terrance
Terrance,
Nice Gold color. Easy on the nose and smooth dram to drink.
 
Douglas
Douglas,
Nice but generally pretty ordinary. Light flavor lacks depth vs the so many other fine offerings from this region.

Very good, especially with a splash of water or an ice cube.

really like all the flavor notes, crisp and clean flavor
 
Tony
Tony,
It does start out a bit strong but has a smooth fruit finish. Not sure I will buy it but will certainly finish the bottle.
 
David
David,
Not my favorite; but with that said I did not mind finishing the bottle. I agree with Loren, this is a stockable whiskey. I find it at first taste strong, but a long smooth lingering memorable shot.
 
Russell
Russell,
Not particularly enjoyable in my opinion, the youth of this shows up immediately with an almost isopropyl scent. Lightly fruity, mostly crisp citrus with a little spice, and a slight medicinal quality that doesn’t appeal. Certainly not one I would purchase again.
 
Mark
Mark,
Not a bad whisky, but not great either. Primarily oak on the nose followed by some sweetness that becomes close to caramel as it sits in the glass. Sweet hits first on the taste, then barrel spices and malt. More spice on the finish and then an almost beer-like aftertaste.
 
Kristina
Kristina,
A solid highland whiskey. Almost smooth, but flavorful without being overpowering — leathery, slightly peaty, and a bit sweet and fruity.

Loren,
I'll keep it in the cabinet for guests that say they're scotch drinkers but don't have a discernible palate.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
So this one was interesting. It’s got slight scotch notes and slight bourbon notes, but it doesn’t really commit to either. I was expecting a stronger scotch flavor given it started as scotch and was finished in bourbon barrels. I’ll enjoy it but I won’t get it again.
 
Heath
Heath,
Fruity smell and taste with that good scotch taste in the back end.
 
Tom
Tom,
Ok, drinkable scotch. Nothing really stands out about it though to me.
