Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Spiced, with notes of red berry fruit, vanilla and toasted oak.

Palate: Creamy, nutty palate entry with notes of sweet custard, apple peel, red berries and orange blossom honey.

Finish: Long finish with plum jam and allspice.

Overall: Spiced and rich with a delicious influence from the red wine casks.

What I say:

The superb Tullibardine 228 Burgundy finish – finally a red wine-finish making it into stable expressions, according to the distillery this one is selling like hot-cakes!


Rich ruby amber (11/20)


Spied and tannic, red berry fruits, strawberry, raspberry and cherries, cinnamon and nutmeg, tannic tea, suede leather, crème brulee


Smooth and initially creamy vanilla turns into strawberries and cream, scones with jam and clotted cream, mixed berry/woodland fruits, bramble jam, Morello cherries,


Medium-long, blackcurrant cordial, plum and cinnamon preserve, oak wood and tannic tea


A good red wine finish edition from Tullibardine. This brings all the right red fruit elements and a little tannic bite to the vanilla and cereal backbone from Tullibardine.

Score: 83/100

Don’t take my word for it:
