This is a very young Tullibardine, bottled by Scottish independent bottler Dram Mor. It matured for only 5 years on a 1st fill ex-oloroso sherry cask, which explains its tan. Interesting nose. Sweet, of course, on figs, plums and even some chewing tobacco, but on the other hand also quite umami and somewhat dirty. Umami in the sense that I have some beef jerky as well as brown gravy from a pork roast. Dirty because it also offers some (non-disturbing) touches of paint and mud. But it is candy sugar that is going to attract most attention. Oh wow! Kaboom! An explosion of fruit and garden herbs. Very herbal, though. Rucola cough bonbons, plum jam, maple syrup, broth, honey, sherry and a cartload of raisins. Chewing tobacco, orange juice, J├Ągermeister liqueur, kirschwasser and rye bread. The finish is dominated by slightly bitter walnuts, while orange peels get the last word. Dry and sweet on the deathbed. If you like a sherry bomb, then this is for you. Still to be found for about 65 EUR, which is not cheap for such a young malt, right? But it is certainly tasty.
