Distilled at Tullibardine in the Highlands, this is a very tasty new whisky which was finished in a 225 litre cask (thus the name) which previously held maturing Sauternes dessert wine from Chateau Suduiraut. The result is a golden-coloured single malt with a deliciously creamy, fruity flavour.
Nose: Citrus peels and allspice. Notes of creamy vanilla, golden syrup, cocoa butter and black pepper.
Palate: Spiced palate entry with notes of candied orange and Seville marmalade. A little dried pineapple and white chocolate.
Finish: Medium finish with lingering sweet spices.
Overall: Superbly fruity whisky with a lovely influence from a dessert wine cask.
