Tullibardine Whisky - Limited Edition

Limited Edition

Single Cask Edition – 2008 Cognac Cask

The first in the Tullibardine Single Cask Edition series, as voted for by our Custodian Club, is a 2008 Cognac Cask bottled in 2022. Finished in French ex-limousin oak from Louis Royer, this is the first Cognac finish Tullibardine have released.
On the nose, you’ll find intense aromas of earthy oak and softened leather, quickly followed by concentrated notes of dried figs and hints of honeysuckle. On the palate the woody aroma builds, with a hint of black treacle. Add water to reveal a hidden maltiness for a rounded finish.

Single Cask Edition – 2006 Tawny Port Cask

The second release in the Tullibardine Single Cask Edition range, as voted for by our Custodian Club, is a 2006 Tawny Port Cask bottled in 2023.
This 17 year old expression is first aged in a first-fill bourbon barrel before spending a final six years in a Tawny Port cask.
The rich burnt copper colour alludes to the complexity and depth of this dram. Top notes of caramelised oranges and toffee pennies lead the nose before giving way to rich honey and raisins.
The sweet fruitiness is further accentuated on the palate, for a finish that is sweet and incredibly creamy, against a backdrop of warm oaken notes.

Single Cask Edition – 2011 Virgin Oak Cask

The third instalment in our Single Cask Edition series is an exceptional 2011 Virgin Oak Cask Finish.
Distilled in 2011, initially aged in a bourbon barrel, the maturing spirit was re-casked in 2017 into an American Virgin Oak barrel and matured for a further seven years this is a first of its kind for Tullibardine.
Expect lots of fruity and floral notes on the nose and a sweetly toasted palate, with a touch of soft citrus. The fruit is honey-glazed with a dusting of spice and buttery oak establishes an indulgent base of aroma that marries beautifully with Tullibardine’s signature oaken vanilla style.


Sabine Hallyburton, Visitor Centre Manager, has worked at the distillery since 2004 and lives locally in the village of Blackford. She has selected this cask for its soft floral aromas of freshly mown meadows with hints of freshly peeled oranges. Strawberries and cream combine with subtle flavours of dark chocolate and freshly brewed coffee that linger gently on the tongue to finish.


Gavin Cunningham, Senior Tour Guide, has worked at the distillery since 2004, born in South Africa now an honorary Scot. He has selected this cask for its soft creamy aromas with a whiff of cordite and hints of tewed apples. Subtle flavours of freshly baked fruitcake and delicate dried spices linger gently on the tongue to finish.


Jim Gerrard, Tour guide, has worked in the distillery since 2009. Originally from St Andrews, he relocated close to the distillery over 25 years ago. He has selected this cask for its soft vanilla aromas with hints of desiccated coconut and freshly washed green apples. Creamy lemon curd and delicate spiced oaky flavours tingle gently on the tongue to finish.


David Myles, Distillery Manager, has worked at the Tullibardine for 17 years. He can uniquely say that he mashed, distilled and filled the spirit that he selected from 2005 to create this expression. He picked a cask that he’d had an eye on over the years due to its rich, honeyed fruits with hints of sweet vanilla, citrus and baked apples. He also thinks it goes perfectly with a bar of chocolate.


Greg Paterson, Senior Distillery & Warehouse Operator at Tullibardine, has been at the distillery since 2007. He has picked a Sauternes cask from that year which boasts notes of caramel, vanilla, and Scottish tablet from its time spent in ex-bourbon casks, while the final maturation in Sauternes releases aromas of white peach and ripe nectarines. An exquisitely balanced and complex dram.


No.6 was chosen by Andy Simpson, a senior still house operator, who has worked at the distillery for over 12 years. He picked this cask for its unique infusion of signature Tullibardine notes of vanilla, caramel and toasted oak enriched with traditional rum flavours.
This deeply golden liquid boasts classic rum aromas of molasses, brown sugar, banana, and cinnamon. The palate is syrupy with a hint of spice which marries with the vanilla and caramel notes harmoniously. A deliciously spicy and sweet lingering finish.


The final instalment of the Distillery Edition series is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape finish chosen by Andrea Duffy, Senior Bottling Hall Operator. She has been with Tullibardine for over 14 years and has chosen this special cask for its full-bodied aroma.
Concentrated notes of blackberries, blackcurrants and plums, with black pepper penetrating the plummy bouquet, the fruity fusion is further savoured on the palate and balanced by hints of vanilla and a touch of oak with a sweet, lingering finish.
