Would buy at the right price.
Tastes young, expected more, moving it to an everyday drinker.

A bit to spicy.
Bit disappointed after trying the 225 that I really enjoyed. It's not bad but will stick to the 225

Not the best
I could have a bad bottle but my experience with Tullibardine is all in the nose. It's complex but not really in a good way. Straight out of the bottle I get a faint but solid whiff of burnt rubber. Threw an ice cube and waited 10-15min for it to roll through some more unpleasant notes (like basically diesel fumes) before it settles down to a pretty standard woody, grassy whisky flavors you would expect out of any decent bottle of scotch.

I bought this on offer whilst on holiday in Montrose, and how glad I am. Opened last week and shared it with a couple of friends, and all we could say was WOW! It’s half gone and I’ll be buying another tomorrow. Awesomely smooth.

The wine cask has done its work, lovely dram
An easy 4 stars from me. I've not been disappointed with a Tullibardine yet and this has everything I enjoy, not too heavy on the fruit, lovely creamy mouth feel and some chocolate, dried fruit after toast. I will definitely put this on the 'buy again' list.

Delivers on taste.
Good value. Creamy finish after the sweetness comes through. Nice to find this in a less recognized label. For those who desire a mellow dram.

Nice for an occasional treat
Quite spicy, but with a bit of marmalade, probably from the wine cask. Perhaps not as nice as a sherry casked one but its still very nice. The 2 morangie; lasanta and Quinta are better but dearer and more aged..

Sour and Mediocre
Mediocre whisky with a honeyed but excessively sour palate and a slightly spicy finish on the bitter side. I am not sure what all the fuss is about.
