Tasting Notes

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.

About This Whisky

Tullibardine Distillery was founded in 1949, the same year as our founder Mike. The distillery is at the gateway to the Highlands, close by the Ochil Hills around 50 miles north-west of Edinburgh.

To make this whisky, we took a 2012 Tullibardine aged in a first fill Bourbon barrel, which is a pretty good dram. But with the magic of two types of sherry and our double wood custom casks, we've transformed it into an outstanding whisky.

The 50/50 combination of Amontillado and Oloroso sherries gives you a unique profile. It’s creamy, rounded and nutty, with elements of dried fruit

It’s so soft and nutty; Firkin 49 single malt is extraordinary Firkin whisky.
