About

Tullibardine has somewhat been regarded as one of the more unfashionable distilleries in Scotland and while the official bottlings have not captured the imagination as much as one would have liked, it is no slouch when it comes to producing good quality whisky. This expression was distilled in 2014, matured in a first fill Oloroso hogshead for its entire life before being bottled at an eye-wateringly high natural cask strength of 65.5% abv by The Single Cask. The results, they say, speak for itself.
