Tullibardine Oloroso & Amontillado Cask Aged 'The Firkin 49' Firkin Whisky 700mL
New exciting range of single cask independently bottled whiskies with some interesting ageing.
This is a cracker. It’s long, rounded and jam-packed with creamy butterscotch toffee. It has crisp malt and some fruit, oak that hangs around, with a little cinnamon and sweet biscuit.
Natural colour, light to medium amber. Coats the sides of my copita, with legs that continue to cling on.
The nose is gentle and welcoming. Soft peach skins, ripened in the sun on the oak kitchen table. Hazelnuts and peanuts - natural, not salted. A touch of sweetness from vanilla fudge.
A medium to full mouthfeel. Fruit and nut milk chocolate, with raisins and more hazelnuts. Sticky figs and ripe plums. A touch of spice adds gentle warmth.
With a medium to long finish. The fruit and nut chocolate continues. The spice lingers, leaving one's palate ready for another dram.
