Distilled at Tullibardine in the Highlands, this is a very tasty new whisky which was finished in a 225 litre cask (thus the name) which previously held maturing Sauternes dessert wine from Chateau Suduiraut. The result is a golden-coloured single malt with a deliciously creamy, fruity flavour.
Nose: Citrus peels and allspice. Notes of creamy vanilla, golden syrup, cocoa butter and black pepper.
Palate: Spiced palate entry with notes of candied orange and Seville marmalade. A little dried pineapple and white chocolate.
Finish: Medium finish with lingering sweet spices.
Overall: Superbly fruity whisky with a lovely influence from a dessert wine cask.

This Tullibardine 225 sauternes is one of the best malt whisky i have tasted, every bit as good as Balvennie double wood. I visited Blackwood serveral times on my way to Aberdeen and tasted a few drams there but this is one of the best.KEEP UP THE GOOD WORKJohn HodgeMaybole

I wonder how much this varies from batch to batch since Sauternes certainly varies hugely from one vintage to another. The conditions for the growth of the Botrytis aren't propitious every year after all. That said, in the bottle I bought and tasted, I find the flavour of the fungus a little overpowering. It renders the nose somewhat sour, masking the marvellous range of fruit scents. Overall, the whisky is well-balanced with a pleasant sweetness to offset the sourness of the "mouldy cork" flavour. I certainly prefer Glenmorangie's Nectar d'Or which manages to retain the raisin sweetness without the mould.

First time with tullibardine really liked it sweet fruity and can take a splash of water which smooths things out and brings out more flavours. Seems to be natural colour and slightly higher strength not sure if it's non chill filtered if it is print it on the label but it should be. This distillery is off the radar but now I'm interested.

Great smooth finish

On the nose you have a joint selfie of melon and vanilla – with bread photobombing the view. But the palate is more focused: delicious French pastries and freshly cut fruit. Tannic and warming.

Very fruity good finish a highly enjoyable drop, got mine direct from the distillery.Enjoyable perhaps a bit too light in the finish and does not linger long enough, but a pleasant drop and very fruit which is pleasant but one at a time or can seem of light.
