Tullibardine 1952 is the oldest expression released by Tullibardine. The 60 year old whisky, is one of the rarest and most expensive single malts in the world. Finished in sherry casks, the 1952 has an enhanced maltiness that reflects Tullibardine’s signature flavour profile. Casked for six decades, the whisky is encased in a bespoke Baccarat crystal decanter and presented in a wooden presentation box.
Tullibardine 1962 is the latest single malt to be released in the exclusive Custodian’s Collection. Matured in American Oak casks for 52 years the expression is the contents of the last two casks of rare single malt to be distilled on the 27th of December 1962 at the distillery. On the nose delicate floral aromas are reminiscent of the heather in bloom on the surrounding Ochil Hills. The addition of water reveals layers of citrus fruits and pineapple with subtle aromas of desiccated coconut. Fresh malty flavours are evident on taste evolving into delicate allspice and subtle dark chocolate to finish.
Custodian 1964 has been drawn from Tullibardine's cellars and carefully nurtured over the years before being bottled at cask strength, 40.4%. On the nose, it intrigues the senses with the delicate aroma of leather armchairs set against fragrant floral meadows, gently mingling with fresh summer fruits drizzled with cream. A subtle hint of milk chocolate coated almonds with hints of freshly cut pineapple tease the tongue. The exclusive whisky enjoys light and gentle flavours of fresh summer strawberries, hints of rich espresso and slightly spicy but warming ground nutmeg, with creamy milk chocolate coated oranges and hints of subtle oak on the finish.
Tullibardine 1970 is a mature, highly fragrant expression and the combination of two sherry hogsheads, one a first fill and the other a second fill. The 1970 offers a rich hint of bees wax with fresh citrus notes of tangerine, balanced with sweet barley, hints of almonds, spice, crème brulee, baked bananas and a touch of vanilla, and is housed within a sleek bottle.
Tullibardine 1973 is the fifth edition of the prestigious Custodian’s Collection. Drawn from deep in Tullibardine’s cellars that hold some rare and precious whiskies, this edition was produced from a sherry butt that was re-casked in 2014. Distilled on 29th September 1973, this whisky has been aged for 49 years. A classic example of historic Tullibardine at its finest with a delightful combination of rich caramel, vanilla pods and butterscotch on the nose. Notes of toasted oak and caramelised brown sugar on the palate, while the complexity deepens for a luxuriously lingering and creamy finish..
