I quite liked the Tusail, but you have to bear in mind It’s not a ground breaking dram.It’s very malty, biscuit-y and fruity which is a always welcome at least IMHO. It’s not ground breaking or something, and It does not stand out from the whisky crowd.I’d recommend this mostly for malt geeks who want to try a whisky made of Maris Otter malt, and Glenmorangie die hard fans, who “must” have all releases on their shelf. Good stuff, but not great, certainly better than the “Dornoch” I reviewed lately, but still I expect more from a private edition release.
