The Tullibardine distillery is one of the youngest Scottish distilleries. It was founded in 1949 by the architect William Delme-Evans and C.I. Barrett. In 1953 the Tullibardine distillery was sold on to Brodie Hepburn Ltd, who are whisky brokers from Glasgow. In 1971 the Brodie Hepburn Ltd was bought by Invergordon and then again in 1993 it was bought by Whyte & Mackay. In 1995 the Tullibardine distillery mothballed and wasn’t opened again until 2003.
This Whisky was distilled during the Brodie Hepburn Ltd reign of the distillery and it is bottled at cask strength. The nose of the whisky is medium bodied with notes of pine and hints of polish and cut grass. Barley sugar and mint encrusted chocolate follows the grass and consumes it. On the tongue it is full and firm, there are flavours of aniseed and salty melted butter. A thick custard note follows with a touch of apple peel and hay. The finish is very long with notes of cereals and aniseed with an oaky flavour that lingers at the back of the throat.
