Whisky Tasting Notes
This is a cracker. It’s long, narrow and jam-packed with creamy butterscotch toffee. It has crisp malt and some fruit oak that hangs around with a tad of cinnamon and sweet biscuit.
The sherries, combined with our custom-made double oak casks results is a stunning new take on Tullibardine. It’s an excellent combination of creamy malt, nuttiness and richness.
About Firkin 49 Tullibardine 2012 Whisky
Tullibardine Distillery founded in 1949, the same year as Mike Collings, the Firkin Founder. The distillery is at the gateway to the Highlands, close by the Ochil Hills about 50 miles north-west of Edinburgh.
To make this Firkin whisky, we took a 2012 Tullibabardine matured in a first fill Bourbon barrel, which is a pretty good dram. But with the magic of two types of sherry and our custom casks, we transformed it into an outstanding whisky.
The Amontillado 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 & nutty; Firkin 49 Single Cask Single malt is extraordinary Firkin whisky.
