Tullibardine The Murray (2004 Vintage), 56.1%
Price: $75 ● Issue: Winter 2016 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
Distilled in 2004, The Murray was matured in first-fill bourbon barrels and is offered at cask strength, non-chill filtered. The nose opens with confident, sweet fruit notes—overripe bananas and peach slices—with background milky coffee. Rich and sweet on the palate, developing vanilla spices, chewy tropical fruits. The finish is long, with cinnamon, licorice, and oak tannins.
