A new week, a new distillery. This week the Tullibardine distillery #62.
The whisky: a light straw colour (no colour added) and nice long legs in the glass
Nose: Spirituous, cardboard, soft fruity notes, whiffs of white spirit, scents of fermenting rice (sake) and a touch of rubber.
Mouth: Slightly waxy body, touch of vanilla, a dash of milk, lavender liquour, some underlying notes of sake,finished of with a peppery edge.
Finish: Quite long, soft to medium spicy notes, grey pepper: soft grind, and milky tones.
This all may sound very unpleasant and I'll admit, it was not a "good" or "enjoyable" whisky by any definition. But it was not repulsive and still highly drinkable. Image a Tobermory with a dash of milk in it.
Will I buy again? No, Will I recommend it to anyone? No. Will I try something from Tullibardine again in the near future? Of course, never judge a distillery by one dram
