Spicy nose-prickle at first, then gently developing a rich, creamy-smooth nature – scented sandalwood, and sweet fruit, hints of strawberry fudge.
Medium to rich in body, but with a light viscosity.
Sweet and spicy to taste at full strength. Chewy yet vivacious, with good intensity and fruity, sweet, deep notes of violets and bittersweet orange peel and ginger.
Warming, powerful, drying and cleansing; aromatic and lightly tart, with some late eucalyptus in the attractive perfumed aftertaste.

Place of Origin: Dufftown
in brief… A zesty, intense, sweet and dry Singleton, underscoring the Glendullan hallmark fruitiness with a spicy intensity.
in a sentence… The understated and graceful firm, sweet and rounded nose fails to prepare you for the reassuringly full flavour!
Spicy nose-prickle at first. Once this clears, slow to start, then gently developing a rich, creamy-smooth nature suggesting natural oils. Scented sandalwood, and sweet fruit – hints of strawberry fudge or ice cream, of just-picked banana. The initial sweet base notes are of buttery shortbread, which develops into butterscotch or milky coffee. Later, rounded, sweet caramels and a soft cereal base are offset by scented top notes of rose water and a balancing tropical-fruit acidity.
Sweet and spicy to taste at full strength. Chewy yet vivacious: soft, coating and warming, with good intensity and fruity, sweet, deep notes of violets and bittersweet (Seville) orange peel joined by an appealing twist of ginger and drying, charred croissant.
