Tullibardine 1962 (40.1% ABV) has been matured exclusively in American oak casks for 52 years.
Tullibardine 1962, which is the contents of the Perthshire distillery’s last two casks of the rare malt distilled on the 27th of December 1962, follows on from the first two; 1952 and 1970 vintages in the brand’s Custodians collection.
This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, is said to deliver notes of lush green meadows, citrus fruit, parma violets and allspice on the nose, followed by notes of zesty lemon, pineapple, desiccated coconut and smooth dark chocolate on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Keith Geddes, Master Blender at Tullibardine, said: “The Tullibardine 1962 is a work of art, capturing the essence of Tullibardine and the effects of the surrounding environment. This is reflected in this special release, which following a lot of patience has blossomed to become a complex and luxurious whisky.”
Limited to 250 bottles, Tullibardine 1962 will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £1,990.
