Tullibardine Sovereign

Delicate, Juicy, Oak, Vanilla
Tullibardine Sovereign is the entry into the core range of whiskies from the distillery in the Scottish Highlands. At the same time, it also forms the basis for further core range bottlings, each of which receives a 12-month finish in a different type of cask than the bourbon cask.

The Sovereign is very faint on the nose. Somewhat oaky and malty, a little vanilla here and there and a hint of pear. Half a spoonful of apricot yoghurt.


The flavour is also relatively "compact". Also oak and vanilla. Instead of great flavours, we encounter hardly any fruit and more ethanol, which makes it tingling.


The finish is short with a hint of cinnamon and some oaky spice.


The Tullibardine Sovereign promises a first-fill bourbon cask whisky. This can be guessed from the nose, there is not much on the palate and the finish is almost not worth mentioning. Nevertheless, we are curious to see what the 12-month finishes can do with the base.
