Tullibardine Sovereign Bottling Note

Adorned with golden detailing, Tullibardine Sovereign is a delicious creamy single malt which was aged in first-fill bourbon barrels before bottling. Expect plenty of vanilla and spice from this Highland Dram.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Soft vanilla and cocoa butter on the nose. White chocolate, allspice and charred oak.

Palate: A little mixed peel with notes of pear cider, allspice and creamy chocolate. A core of rich malt with hints of maple syrup.

Finish: Spiced, creamy finish. Plenty of vanilla and cinnamon.

Overall: A creamy whisky from some truly delicious casks!

11th April 2020


Really lovely.. That nice my wife a non whisky drinker asking for more.. Regards Robert Simpson.

Well made spirit

Well made spirit. Bourbon cask notes are prominent. When they get some older stock and release this as a 12 year old it will be superb.

Good introduction to Tullibardine

16th August 2019

Creme brûlée

Nice enough for a cheap change of pace.

6th August 2019

Wonderful whisky, well worth the money.

Delicious, warm, relaxing, almist floral but definitely a hint of gentle spice.

Good for what it is

Another good bottle from Tullibardine. Light in color, and probably could use another year or two in the barrel however this goes down nice and easy. Has the creamy edge I get in other Tullibardine whiskys. Flavors are light and sweet, reminds me of stroopwafel cookies and pancakes with maple syrup. Almost like a good Canadian whisky more than a single malt Scotch. Add a half star for value, at under $40 on my shelf this is a good buy. I got it to share with friends that are coming over so they won't finish my Lagavulin and Talisker.

Rich, biscuity goodness. Perfect midweek nightcap.

This is a wonderful whisky. Rich and smooth - much better in the mouth than on the nose. Toffee, caramel flavours from the bourbon cask maturation. Nice little edge. Dangerously drinkable.

Needs improvement

I don’t like it

22nd January 2019

Good but not my favorite in the price range

I just opened a bottle I had sitting for 3 years. Pleasant aroma with oak and hints of pear. Not the taste I hoped for when I tried it neat. Still a bit of a burn going down. A few drops of water and the aroma bumps up a notch and the taste is more pleasant but still not what I'm looking for. I think I'm more of a Islay guy.

Medium bodied, rich

This is a 4 star Scotch. It needs a few drops of water to release it's full flavour profile (most 43% do), but once diluted, it's lovely. Coconut, toffee, cream and chocolate all swirl around agreeably.

I sense a few age snobs in the reviews below. Don't believe them. Get this at the right price and you've got an absolutely lovely whisky.

24th November 2018

Quite lovely.

The one that wrote Dreadful... you heathen. I bet you buy Glenfiddych and think it’s fine.
This is a great malt especially for the price. Goes down so easily.

‘Dreadful’ writer probably works for Tomatin and drives a Skoda from 2003.

One of the nastiest bottles I've had for a while.

Acid all over

2nd September 2018

Delicious - for those wanting absolutely nothing to do with peat, smoke, wood ash, TCP or Dettol

Well, now – here’s an interesting dram, for those wanting absolutely nothing to do with peat, smoke, wood ash, TCP or Dettol.
Add an equal amount of ginger ale, et voilà – the perfect summer Prosecco, with sweet pears, lychees, and a hint of vanilla. Not quite sure what this has to do with ‘traditional’ malt whisky, but it’s deliciously more-ish of a summer evening and, with 22% ABV, it’ll get you contentedly squiffy in no time.

Really easy to drink delicious

I add a splash of water. it has a subtle sweet caramel flavour. Easy to drink so be careful. One of my all-time favourites

15th April 2018


A friend brought a wee bottle back from Scotland and it was yummy. Sad it was gone. A 90 pointer in my book! Then yesterday I found a larger bottle at my favourite store and it is now a wonderful addition to my collection. Life is good. Delicious! Cheers!

19th February 2018

Not good!

very young in it's flavour profile. Needs serious attention.

25th October 2017

Not so great

Had good expectation and was a bit disappointed. Not too much flavour.

12th June 2017


I spent time smelling it first, I think that's essential before you drink any whisky I close my eyes and smell, just that made me feel like I was curled up in a big easy chair and still with my eyes closed when I tasted it, it was was like I was in a warm cosy room with a great open fire warming my toes,absolutely loved it thank you finest whisky I have ever drunk

31st January 2017

Tulibardine Sovereign

Excellent, I generally like Speyside malts
This is lovely to be savoured by a rouring fire after being out for a walk on a icy cold day and being reflective
Will buy again

Scotch scotch scotch

Sweet Jesus this stuff was good.

23rd December 2016

I was wrong!!

Reconsidering review... I was an idiot labelling this as acid... I confess I was looking for richer notes. But a touch of water and this little ray opens up. Like warm winter sun on honey dew home fields... very comforting!!

20th October 2016


Crikey this stuff is nasty... 'lingering finish' - that'll be the acid burn that goes on and on... it's worse than bells and teachers for venom

What great drink,really enjoyed the taste very clear looking

How NAS whiskies should be done

High quality malt, very enjoyable. It's certainly made me want to explore the rest of the range.

23rd January 2016

An okay whisky

As mentioned before, this is an okay (or average) whisky. It is indeed nothing special, but at the same time it is easy to like. You shouldn't feel embarrassed to give this to a esteemed whisky-friend, but don't expect a 'wow'-reaction from his side.
All the tasting note above are spot-on, but I would like to add that there's a nice glow afterwards, which makes this whisky very enjoyable.
Yet, at the same time I am very aware of the fact that there are far better whiskies in this price range, hence the fact I call it an okay whisky. It is good, but nothing too special. H. J. van Boven

12th June 2015

It's fine but nothing special.

Good if you like your whisky spirit driven. Not that much cask involvement going on here good clean cereal nose, a little bland on the palate - touch of pear? touch of something grassy? creamy vanilla finish.

12th May 2015


Smells of toffees and stacking up hay into the barn in your childhood. Bread, cereal aromas, irony notes of scythe. Similar to Deanston and Monkey Shoulder. Mouth is tangy and hot, lemon tea & ginger, butterscotch.

Another Hurried Marketing Ploy!

Looking at the reviews of malts generally and this one in particular it seems almost everyone is now versed in the business of supplying ever increasingly complex descriptions. These make it appear that everyone has become an expert dram taster and master of the dictionary! Whilst I perhaps don't have this command or knowledge I do know what I like and how it tastes. Therefore my considered opinion of this product is that it tastes like shit!

24th November 2014

Tullibardine Delicious

This is a delicious malt. Its smooth, sweet and has complex flavors that develop once this little goldie has passed by your tongue. The taste changes with a touch of water, but excellent either way.
