70cl, 48% abv
Tullibardine 40 Year Old World Cup Edition Single Malt Whisky was matured in Sherry wood before bottling. It commemorates the 2006 Football World Cup in Germany, only 300 bottles have been released. A malt of masterful proportions; quite simply, an exceptional dram. This 1966 has depth, character and a power that never overwhelms. Big and round with a delightfully long and mellow finish, this has aged extremely well.
Nose: Thick and agile with notes of barley sugar, toasted cereals and toffee. There's vanilla fudge and hints of mulled pears, sultanas and Caribbean rum also.
Palate: Rich with notes of syrup, sultanas, rum and a buttery note to end with.
Finish: Thick and long with notes of toffee apple, vanilla fudge and a touch of oak.
