Delicate. Light. Perfectly balanced. Drink it however you want. The Singleton Glendullan is a uniquely versatile single malt with an equally rich history.
In Dufftown, Scotland we say “Rome was built on seven hills and Dufftown stands on seven stills.”
Constructed in 1897 — and the seventh of the distilleries — Glendullan sits on the bank of the River Dullen amongst the picturesque Convall Hills.
Glendullan’s onion-shaped stills produce a delicate spirit with a green apple profile. Most of our product is aged in American oak bourbon barrels, which impart sweetness and a rich nuttiness. A smaller portion of our single malt is aged in fruity European sherry casks.
Nose: Malty with cereal/barley sweetness, buttery toast, wood shavings, hay and walnut.
Palate: Orange zest spiciness perks up a malty core of nuts, oak and toffee, hints of cut grass.
Finish: Oaky, rich with good length, some fruit lingers.
Slightly spicy nosefeel and drying, overall. Toffee apples. Hints of honeycomb balanced by remnants of youthful zestiness – linseed oil and scented tea.
Without water, the flavour is sweet to start then drying in the finish. Warming, light and smooth; tending to delicate. Malty and oaty base notes.
Drying. Pears and digestive biscuits, then delicately spiced with notes of aniseed.
Soft, inviting, dry, and autumnal. Sweet, stewed fruits (apricot preserve), ripe autumn apples, and rich berry fruits.
Firm to full. Again dry and sweet, gently dominated by nuts, dark toffee, and gentle mint, before the fruits return as rhubarb and apple juice.
Sweetness softly introduces a longer, drying oakiness. Stewed-fruit freshness. Wood-smoke spiced with faint black pepper.
