SMWS 28.38 Cherries in summer
Posted 06 September 2018 by Matt / In Tullibardine
Bottle Name: 28.38 Cherries in summer
Bottler: Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Flavour Profile: Light & delicate
10 year old Tullibardine drawn from a 2nd fill ex-bourbon barrel. Light & Delicate profile.
Nose: Fresh, crisp, clean and appealing. Ripe fruits (apples and oranges – but no cherries for me) are conjoined with honey, a little beeswax, freshly baked biscuits and pancake batter. In the background, interesting herbals and florals – cotton sheets, cut flowers and nettles. Water adds a touch of malty and oatiness as well as savoury popcorn and scones.
Taste: A bold and syrupy arrival that merges fruits (apples and pears – still no cherries) with kitchen bakery – waffles, butter biscuit (base), batter mix and oaty flapjacks. Reduced, there’s less overt sugariness and more malty barley – breakfast cereals, muesli, shredded wheat, ginger and creamy fudge.
Finish: Medium with gentle ginger spicing, bread, toast and vanilla pods.
This Tullibardine is a real surprise from this month’s outturn – whilst straight-forward, it’s very well-balanced, crisp and packed full of delicious bakery aromas and flavours. No cherries for me, but still on point.
