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.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
Classic Highland fruit notes greet the nose with apple and pear along with breakfast cereal and light baking spices.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate follows the aromas with plenty of tart apple and pear followed by Danish pastries, and subtle notes of baking spice and cocoa.
The finish is medium length with lingering honied apple notes.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Tullibardine Sovereign and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
