Splendidly rich, refined and rounded.The Singleton of Glendullan
Best enjoyed neat in a rocks glass.
The more indulgent end of the Speyside spectrum.
Deep amber. Good viscosity.
Deep, with a faint, scented top note of dried rose petals then a dense fusion of creamy-sweet aromas – biscuity with sharper accents of raspberry puree.
Medium to rich with good viscosity.
Initially creamy with clean vanilla notes, then drying, and bittersweet, with dates and caramelised orange peel.
Accomplished and creamy, with appetising charred notes, light spice, pine-resin freshness and tropical fruit acidity.
Strength: 40% ABV
Place of Origin: Dufftown
in brief… A highly refined and polished Singleton with all its elements aligned, which is gloriously warming, comforting and indulgent.
in a sentence… A real Christmas pudding of a whisky with solid, rich, malty undertones; pithy dried fruits; hints of spice and cleansing acidity, and cooling vanilla-rich creaminess.
Soft and full, yet not overpowering or cloying. Deep, with a faint, scented top note of dried rose petals then a dense fusion of creamy-sweet aromas; honey fudge, caramels, vanilla, milk chocolate. They sit on a malted-biscuit base that has a light balsamic note and a hint of cinnamon spiciness. All this is appealingly topped by sharper accents of raspberry puree or stewed plums and zesty orange oil, in abundance.
Ripe, full and elegant when enjoyed straight. Smooth textured and coating, yet clean: rich, oily and cooling. Lively on the tongue. Starts mildly sweet amid a subtle fusion of treacle toffee, fudge and malted biscuits; initially creamy with clean vanilla notes, then drying, and bittersweet, with dried fruits (dates) and caramelised orange peel (thick cut chunky marmalade). Water brings up its softer side, with noticeable orange peel.
