For about 12 months, Tullibardine Sovereign has been finished off in Sherry Butts, which are 500 litres in size. This has created an intense, dark, rich brown whisky. There are hints of toffee and apples with an edge of cereal notes. On the palate, vanilla and toffee abound with dates and spice.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Lightly glazed with slick golden sherry, the vibrant peach, pear, and cereal flavors assume rare levels of sumptuousness. Light but richly flavored, the core notes of toffee and vanilla are framed by barely-present white pepper and wintergreen. (Apr 2016)
