Tullibardine can be found in the village Blackford in Perthshire on the site of Scotland's oldest brewery, which dates back to the 12th Century. But the actual founding of the distillery dates from 1949, making it one of the youngest distilleries of Scotland. Today we'll try their Aged Oak Edition, a malt with no age statement from 2010. A little research tells us this is a vatting of both old and new whisky (the distillery re-opened in 2003).
The nose is rather weak and docile with peach, apple, butterbur and cardboard. Not bad, but too docile to be really surprising.
The attack is pretty flat, oily and sweet. Very grainy and spirity, if you ask me. I get a touch of citrus and again peaches and cardboard. Well... this doesn't really set me on fire.
The finish offers nothing new and is not particularly long. Easily forgotten.
This seems to me the entry malt from Tullibardine, for it is dirt cheap. But then, you get little in return.The label says 'fine, rare, smooth & mellow'. I agree with only the last two.
