The Singleton of Glendullan 19 Year Old Special Releases 2021 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
This smooth, rich expression adds a lush new honeyed sweetness to the mature allure of this classic slow-crafted Speyside malt.
This richly rewarding Singleton has shimmering aromas of fruit and marzipan, while its sweet, luscious, rounded flavours seduce with their easy charm.
Full 18 carat gold with khaki lights.
Mild in feel, the nose shines with top notes of dried fruits suggesting dried figs and apricots or crystalised angelica and orange peel, while beneath this there is the dry scent of a light fruitcake, iced with spirited notes of vanilla-scented marzipan. More buttery notes emerge with a drop of water, which also brings up the spiciness.
A soft, smooth and mouth-filling texture, oaky-dry at first, brings out layers of richly fruity flavouring which a lusciously sweet taste of ripe green apple is enriched by exotic hints of grape spirit and sweet coconut. A little water enhances the effect.
Lengthy and warming, waxing sweet and faintly savoury with a trace of ginger spice and the merest touch of smoke.
