The auburn hue of this whisky comes directly from it’s time spent in the 228 litre barriques that previously held Pinot Noir from Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet. The nose of the 228 features red cherries and vanilla with hints of chocolate and Turkish Delight. On the palate, there is a real hint of summer fruit, more chocolate and a sweet spice note on the finish.
A wonderful, rich whisky that has been matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and finished in 225 litre sauternes casks. This beautifully golden Tullibardine has hints of citrusy lime on the nose and hints of vanilla and oatmeal. On the palate, there is a touch of tropical pineapple and zingy orange zest and finishes with a creamy edge.

Comprising four flavoursome wines from Spain, Argentina, Italy and France plus a box of beautiful hand-made chocolates from Holdsworth with the words “World’s Best Dad” adorned on the box, this splendid gift is sure to please.
