A New Bottling From Tullibardine Distillery


The John Black Selection No 4

Tullibardine Vintage 1988 Cask no:540 Sherry Hogshead

As part of the Homecoming Celebrations Tullibardine Distillery have bottled the 4th John Black Selection which is a single cask from a sherry hogshead Vintage 1988. John was arranging for a selection of casks from the 1988 Vintage to go to bottling for the normal Tullibardine range. One cask stood out as a truly exceptional one that deserved to be treated as a single cask bottling in its own right.

This single malt has a lovely autumnal and russet brown colour. There are varying levels of aromas from Demerara sugar, a hint of maple syrup with a touch of orange blossom. To taste the alcohol is there but is integrated with balanced acidity and a viscosity that fills the mouth. Orange and chocolate flavours abound with a lovely crème brulée character that runs through to the finish with hints of barley at the end. Remarkably subtle yet very complex, this is a cask that has provided a Single Malt of real character, charm and finesse. Bottled at cask strength – 56% there are 306 bottles available.
