Released to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of King James IV's coronation, a light, affable single malt from the Tullibardine distillery, distilled in 1988.
The nose is of medium-body and very smooth. There are notes of custard and toffee, caramel and vanilla cream with a touch of dried fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and supple. There is a solid barley sugar sweetness with notes of caramel and vanilla fudge with notes of marzipan. The finish long and sweet with an oily note.
I had this in 2002 and I still remember how wonderful it was. The best/smoothest whisky I have ever tasted
